More About the Author
Nice review here.
WE HIT NUMBER ONE! Thank you all so much for making my dreams come true!
Anyway I tried to figure out why this book is connecting.
I really think what has happened, now that I have time to think a little, is that I wrote a chapter for every kind of fan. Few will like every one of them, most will like something, or maybe the whole of it is relatable.
I had fun with it. Didn't try to get too heavy but wanted to give Elvis his fair shake as a pure artist. Not everything he did was pure, but when it was, well who was better?
It was only these things I did with it, so if people like that I tried to include all of them in some way, well I am glad.
I also do try to have fun with music. I think entertainment can make you think of course, but all in all music simply makes me feel good.
All my books or articles try to just say that. Maybe that is the connection. I was never mean. I don't find Elvis to be "shocking" in any way. Not any way that matters when he died so long ago. He messed up bad at certain points, but my point is that we all do, or all could. Elvis Presley was not an easy job, I am surprised he was so together as long as he was. I mean after a year or two I wouldn't like it at all.
My official bio is
"Mike Eder is a writer and vinyl record aficionado, specializing in the music of the fifties, sixties, and seventies. His work has led to reviews and interviews for newspapers such as the Washington Post and websites such as Examiner.com. An Elvis fan since age six, he has written for over a dozen Presley publications. Other subjects Eder has covered include the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the First Edition, and the Three Stooges. Most recently he has been contributing to Erik Lorentzen's seminal series of books and magazines, the Elvis Files. He and his wife, Debra, live in Naperville, Illinois. He is available for interview."
I am currently working on the Beach Boys project "I Can Hear Music" and the official biography of The First Edition "Tell It All Brother".
To see my book being sold online and in stores is happy surreal experience.
BACK TO ELVIS
First major interview is here http://www.elvisinfonet.com/interview_mike_eder_Elvis_Music_FAQ.html
I love that site and am honored to be on it. They are the top news source in my mind.
Also a new interview with me is up and I really am happy about it. Jim Ellis did the interview and I thank him
This should work, I had a little trouble getting on but Jim is keeping his eye out for new members. It is a site that Rex Martin ran and even if you know him only by name ((like myself) he is worthy of being remembered in the Elvis world. All of us know more about Elvis because of him so I was really happy to do this. The interview is really interesting as far as the questions. I like this part of promotion because it makes me think. All the interviews have been terrific and I can hardly wait to do more. Not because I get to talk Mike Eder, but because I get to talk music. I like getting my name out there in any way possible of course, but I enjoy this in a number of other ways too. I guess I get to talk to everyone who reads it, and that is so fascinating if you think about it.
Hope you like it and Jim will help you get on there.
