Author, Blogger, freelance journalist, public access TV producer, talk show host and fan of all genres in African-American Literature, Jeff “DJ Gatsby ” Wilson has decided to release his first book about the authors he has supported for years. Well known as the founder of DJ Gatsby Book Club and WB Media Group, he has spent over almost five years meeting, interviewing and getting to know hundreds of African-American authors and publishers.
After moving to Southern Maryland from New York in 2011, he started DJ Gatsby Book Club and his group went on to have their first annual “Urban Literary Awards” presentations in 2012. Also in 2012, he obtained his Television Production certification from the College Of Southern Maryland and became a public access television producer. Later on that year, he went on to produce and host ”The Talk Show With DJ Gatsby,” becoming the first graduate from the “Digital Media Certification” program to do so. “The Talk Show” airs on the Comcast & Verizon Public Access Cable TV Channels in Charles County, Maryland.
In 2013, he started the WB Media Group, which brought all of his ventures under one umbrella. WBMG became not just an advertising and marketing company dedicated to helping authors promote their books and build their brands, but for the executive television producers for “The Talk Show” along with the manager and booking agent for ”DJ Gatsby” and his ”disc jockey” career.
With the upcoming release of “Who’s Who In African-American Lit Vol. 1,″ DJ Gatsby hopes to introduce today’s fans and readers to some young and upcoming authors as well as some of the New York Times Bestselling authors they may have never heard of.
*The release of ”Who’s Who In African-American Lit Vol. 1″ is schedule for some time in 2019. It will be published by WBMG Publishing and be available in both Kindle & Paperback.
