He set up a DBA in Los Angeles and called the new company Amber Books.  "Is Modeling For You: The Handbook and Guide for the Young Aspiring Black Model" was published in September 1997 and The Roses went on a cross-country tour to meet and promote the book to bookstores, distributors, wholesalers, and organizations.

Today, Tony Rose is the Publisher and CEO of Amber Communications Group, Inc. (ACGI) the nation’s largest African-American publisher of Self-Help Books and Music Biographies.

Tony and Yvonne Rose with the City of

Los Angeles/State of California Resolution/Proclamation. 2008

Tony Rose, Publisher, Amber Books and Yvonne Rose, Associate Publisher, Amber Books at BookExpo America. 2008

The story of an African American child and young teenager growing up in the real ghetto, the housing projects. Coming from a dysfunctional and violent family where contrary to what poor Black people are always depicted as; there is no God, no church on Sunday, no marching with Martin Luther King, Jr., and no singing in the church choir.

The screams and howls of centuries of terror, violence and brutality transcend time as you, the reader, are taken on a tremendously honest, epic journey from Africa to Western Europe to the Americas in this compelling, violent, and true story of two turbulent and distinct African American families of unbridled good and evil, both born and raised in the brutality and horror of American slavery, segregation, and racism.

The journey takes you all the way to the terrifying, vicious and savagely honest, invisible black ghetto world of a child, and then teenager, growing up in the Whittier Street Housing Projects, in Roxbury, Mass.,  where the schools of hard knocks and real fucked up shit are taught, lived, and died in, side by side.
