To all of Michael's biggest fans ...

To all of Michael's biggest fans, first of all... thank you, thank you for supporting Michael and the TRUTH... It is more important  than ever, now, in the face the Conrad Murray trial in early 2011 and all the mud-slinging the defense will create.

For anyone who has asked for a personalized copy of MJC -- please forgive me -- but I am on the road shooting my True Crime show, and have been overwhelmed to the point of tears, between travel, my writing, my family obligations, and the holidays. As it stands, I have just over 2 dozen books left.... and I package them by hand because I can't trust any helper to keep the shipping labels straight... so FYI ...I spend hours packing and labeling...

I actually DO notice the names of those of you who order MJC from me because I have a photographic memory ... so again... thank you for caring about having something that proves Michael was innocent... I myself have a hard time with people who STILL don't believe me when I explain that MJ was framed. People prefer to believe hateful things about him... yet his music brings everyone so much joy. It is confounding... that's for sure.

BTW, any book is always worth more without being personalized... just thought I'd mention that. AS for the hardcover version... I don't think that will ever be available again... so, hold on to what you've got, and stop trying to sell them for crazy amounts of money... please! 

Because of my travel schedule, I will not be able to offer signed MJC books at any time after January 7, 2011. I hope you all understand. I just can't keep up the pace.. Because of that, MJC is now avail on Amazon in paperback for anyone who wants one...  I think they sell it for $21.99...   

ON another note: please know that I am in regular contact with MEZ, who keeps me updated on the family.... Though he never says too much... I know he sees them.  Sometimes I hear about his Mom but I never anything about his children, who are having yet another Christmas without Michael.... We can only imagine how devastated they are...  IN any case, I have promised MEZ confidentiality in all MJ matters that he relates to me... so I really can't say more.

I want to share something about the cover of the new album... Michael.... which I love...
Have any of you studied the painting on the cover? Of course, it chronicles Michael's life and even has hints about his early days (you'll notice a tiny Volkswagon bus) as well as reminders of his work in E.T. in 1982 (the spaceship). Also, one really great thing about this painting is that Prince, Paris and Prince II are represented with Michael multiple times.

What people  might not know, however, is that the artist who painted this piece (Kadir Nelson) asked certain famous people to lend their images to him, but many withheld their copyright permission. This includes, in no specific order: Debbie Rowe, Elizabeth Taylor, Madonna. and Oprah Winfrey. Hmmmmm.

One last note about the album cover painting for MJ trivia fans:  look inside the CD for the full painting in the centerfold... and somewhere, you will find a floating golden gavel... which is a REMINDER of Michael's courtroom victory in Santa Barbara County in 2005!

Finally, as we approach another New Year without MJ, please try to remember that Michael put his heart into everything... and he left us a legacy of posthumous songs that continue to remind us the he is still with us... and is still The KING.

Sending my love and wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

I am not sure I could ever thank you enough for all you did/do for MJ. You got the truth out and I and so many appreciate that. I, like so many others still feel a huge sense of loss, and somedays still cry and hurt. It still feels like a part of me died when he did. You ARE right, MJ did put his heart into everything and alot of love. I can only imagine how hurt Ms Katherine must feel and all the Jackson, most especially his children who no longer have their dear Sweet Daddy. ~ Christy

Aphrodite, I want to personally thank you for what you wrote. It has helped me "see the light". I just do not understand how the legal system gets away with what they did. And do not even get me started on the press. The real people who should be reading this book are the doubters. Your words were beautiful. I feel deep down in my heart that Justice for Michael will prevail. We have to Keep The Faith, as Michael said. And thank you for all your work in getting this book back into our hands. I cherish it forever.
Love to you and Michael and his children. Charsie

He was arrested a year later and don't think he got his master recordings back before he was killed.

I thought that it would be impossible for me to find MJC with a reasonable price, nowadays. But unexpectedly, I was tremendously happy and also surprised when I finally got this book at Kinokuniya bookstore in Singapore! And with a very reasonable price too! This is definitely a treasure that I will never let go!

Thank you so so much for writing such a beautiful book about Michael. This book gives me a realistic picture that Michael was a human being just like us. He had some flaws as well as superiorities. But above all, his uniqueness, his talents, and his love has made him to become a Wonderful person that we always admire!

Happy New Year for you and your family, Mrs. Jones... =)

It's all for L.O.V.E.

Thank you so much for everything you have done. I for one, have always believed in MJ's innocence and am glad that you have written the truth so that others may read and know the real story. I will keep this book forever and would never sell it for any amount, it means too much to me. Being a fan for long long time I know I will have this broken heart forever however, it's much worse for his family and especially his beautiful kids. Justice needs to be done! Thank you again AJ.

KIEMA said...

Hi, Aphrodite!

It's Kiema! I've got the book, the autograph, and FINALLY--the TRUTH. The WHOLE Truth! I LOVE how absolutely detailed you were in recounting all those days in and around the courtroom during Michael's trial. I really appreciate having the FULL picture now.

I just have one question though: Will you be covering the Conrad Murray case? I just read an article today on TMZ about how the defense is going to use Michael's health conditions from previous tours in order to indicate that MURRAY isn't to blame for his death and that Michael killed HIMSELF because he pretty much cracked under the pressure of what would've been his comeback tour.

What bullcrap, right? Here's the link to the article in case you want to see:

It's an OUTRAGE!!! >:-[

Thank you, Aphrodite, for your message. I am so thankful I received one of the last hardcover copies of MJC, and I would never, never sell it for whatever price.
I also would like to know if you will cover the Murray trail and if you will provide us with information about it.
All the best wishes to you for 2011.

Hi Aphrodite. Thank you for all that you do for Michael. I have
your new book, and I must say that
I can only read a little at a time.
It is very painful and disturbing
to revisit all that Michael endured
at that time and to know the aftermath of that horrible injustice. I would like to extend
to Tom Mesereau my appreciation for his role in Michael's life and
his continued defense of that innocent man.

The world is a darker place without
Michael's light and I think we all
feel that. I hope Ms. Katherine and the children are doing Ok though it must be very difficult for them.

This January will no doubt be
extremely difficult as we muddle through another attempt to sully Michael's name and legacy. He stood with such dignity and pride in 2005, I hope we can follow his
example and do the same.
Thanks again. Lauren

Thank you, Mrs Jones, for spreading the truth about Michael. "MJ Conspiracy" was published in Italy last summer and I bought it immediately. It's so sad what happened to him.He was a real humanitarian hero, I can't believe what this bad world did to him.
Thank you so much.

Aphrodite, i will start my comment by Wishing you a very Happy New Year to you and your close ones!
Few days ago i read my copy of MJC just to remind myself what the media was capable of reporting and now that this trial for Murray is coming i wonder if we will hear the truth at all. I must say that i wish you are there to do it for us. Thank you for spreading the truth and also a big Thank You to Messerau because you both keep defending MJ.

Michael Jackson will always be the best performer of all times. We miss him every day.

For a person like MJ with all the good feeling in his heart, always helping people and foundations, he had a rough life.

The world didn't always treat him good but now all the critics know what they are missing and wished they treated him better.

KirstenC said...

Thank you so much for writing this book. For having the courage to stand up against those that would try and tear down Michael, and tell the truth!
Thank you to for your personal touch with the book - from personally signing them to packaging them yourself. With your busy schedule, it means so much that you would take the time to do that.
You are a true Michael soldier and it is so reassuring to know that there are still people like yourself out there ready to stand up and tell the TRUTH about our wonderful Michael.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I absolutely love & adore you Aphrodite! You are exceptional, truly! Love your show - Can't thank you enough for writing the MJ book! He needed a voice & there couldn't have been anyone more suitable than you to speak for him! He would be very proud & honored by you no doubt!!!

Our world (in my personal opinion) will never be the same without him!!! I grieved when he passed - The last time I grieved in such a way for another celebrity was Lucille Ball!

I'm glad you have a twitter account as I'm now one of your followers: Lainey1069 - (at least I think its you as the account is not verified)

Well - Thank You again & thank you for what you do because you help make the world a better place!

I just finished watching the True Crime episode of MJ. This is the FIRST show I have seen that shows the other side of the media. Thank you for showing the truth. The media can twist things around to wear we believe every word. I was about 8 or 9 when I fell in love with MJ watching Thriller. I saw that documentary and it made MJ look really weird and then the second trial made us all really wonder. It's sad that we can so easily believe what people say on TV is true when it is so far from the truth. They only need bad news to sell not the good very sad. But thank you for that episode I wish there were more people out there doing the same thing, the right thing

I can't thank you enough from the bottom of my heart for writing this book. I got a much treasured hardback copy which I have read and shed numerous tears over...I KNEW all along that Michael was innocent. I wrote him letters of support and love during the trial, trying to lift his spirits and keep him strong. How I wish I could have been there for his final days, maybe...well, I won't go there as it's too painful..when he passed he ripped a huge chunk out of me which can never be replaced. I want to see truth prevail and justice be done. Thank you so SO much for having the guts to go against popular "belief" and put the truth out there...L.o.v.e Vibeke

Thank you so much for what you have done. I hope you can cover the mysteries behind his death, everything seemed wired and I don’t trust what I hear from the media anymore. I saw this on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaqOqnyrGZA (what did happen to Michael Jackson) and I was shocked. I always loved MJ but we don’t hear this bad news about him in my country like what the USA has done to him. I am sorry for saying this but the problem is in the media itself.
Someone has to come clean about him, and I like what you have done you are amazing. For the show you have done, I have watched it. It is amazing and I hope you can cover other things that the media accused Michael with.
Like what Michael Jackson said the money is the root of evil. What I want you to think off why John bronco have been hired 8 days before Michael’s death and Michael fired him on 2003 when he represented Sony and Michael was afraid that branca will sell his share in the catalogue to Sony in low price. Everything started from when Michael left Sony and Sony fired tomy mottola and he was hired back.
*The problem is nothing is build up to give a story there is a lot of gaps. I have one request, talk about Michael Jackson medication and he was not a drug addict. People think he was on drugs and it was pain killers. If someone was a drug addict he want survive for 20 years, my sister is a doctor and she told me no way. And the autopsy showed that his system was clear form legal or illegal drugs except the one given to him same day he died. Notice Michael Jackson’s pictures staring from May 2009 till Dr Murrey came, Michael’s health deteriorated.
*They accused him of bleaching his skin till now like what Bill O’Reilly still saying on his show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KNUtBrAAuo and every one ignored the autopsy reports that he had vitiligo.
*Other thing for his plastic surgery, they ignored that he has lupus as well and his nose surgery wasn’t just plastic surgery it was to repair the damage that affected his nose and I saw reports saying that he dad to remove a cancer tissue from his nose as well.
* they have to stop talking about the parallel between Michael Jackson death and Elvis. Elvis died with 14 prescriptions drugs and his system this is not Michael Jackson case.
* in Lisa marrie interview with oprah it was bad she portrayed him as a drug addict and manipulative and waved a flag that he may be guilty. She said I can’t answer that questions Michael and the one who was in the room can answer but never saw anything.
Thank you so much for you effort.

Hi Aphrodite!
You are one of my favourite crime writers.Did heard about a doctor here in canada that killed his children and got off for saying he's crazy with mental illness. That woman said she was drinking and when into a blackout. I think she is a liar because you drink yourself into a blackout you don't remember a thing went you come out of it. Because am a alocholic myself and i can't remember any of my blackout's and been clean and sober from July 8 1989. I think that other woman killed her son that was left in the car as she said. Is all these people going to get a lawyer like casey anthony got?

You have a better chance to win the pot and even wyblefowania przeciwników.Nie play too many starting hands of the weak cards (eg, 4, 5, 6, 7). With a weak first card, it is much harder to improve hand value than the card such as 10, J, Q, K, or A.Spalona hand can still win! If all the other players also crossed the 21, then 22 is the best ręką.Pamiętaj, Ace counts as either a 1 or a 11 So you have a chance of not exceeding 21 by tightening the three karty.Twoja face-up card is an Ace, but you're 21?
