SUKI tells the story of Savannah, an independent go getter who allows fear to keep her from being completely happy, and Dwayne, a softhearted ex-Marine with a talent for creativity. The couple is destined to find each other and carry out a preordained agreement made long before their human feet enter this Earthly plane. Their connection is tangible and their lives easyuntil they are presented with one challenge that shakes them to their cores. The couple's subsequent struggle to make sense of their imploding world comes to a head in the epilogue, where a shocking secret is revealed in an overdue letter.

We all assume we know what love is, but think again. It comes in many shapes and sizes. If you knew ahead of time that you’d never see “happily ever after”, would you choose to live at all for the sake of love? Read more at ReadSUKI.com.

In the past year, she has lost her fiancé, her job and her fertility. Embracing her role as spinster aunt seems to be Lucy’s only option, until she embarks on a romantic adventure through London, Amsterdam, Munich, Paris and Florence. Will a room with a view and a handsome stranger be enough to open her heart and mind to new experiences? Tales From A Broad promises to draw readers into a light-hearted tale of emotional development, self-discovery and love.

Jeannine Henvey, a Long Island native, graduated magna cum laude from Hofstra University with a Master of Arts in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. After graduate school she moved to Manhattan where she mastered the art of job hopping. She finally landed in publishing where she had a long stint as a promotional writer for many popular women’s magazines.

Jeannine backpacked around Europe with three of her friends in between undergrad and grad school. Whether in a youth hostel, on the EuroRail, sitting in a pub, or at a sidewalk cafe, she kept a journal throughout the two month trip. Over the years, she had come across the book and put it away, knowing that one day she would do something special with it. It was that journal that inspired her to write Tales From a Broad.

When she's not traveling the world with her fictitious characters, Jeannine is happily grounded with her husband and three children on Long Island.

Rostan invites us to experience her journey as she seeks to uncover the story of her husband's family, including two courageous but silent survivors of WWII's Warsaw Ghetto: her mother-in-law Elzbieta and Elzbieta's brother, Marian Rosenbloom. With the passing of Elzbieta, an aging Uncle Marian is the only surviving link to his family's historythe stories of tragic loss and heroic survivalthat he and his sister had refused to share with anyone throughout their lives. Encouraged by the author and driven by an emerging sense of responsibility to his sister's namesake and future generations, Marian begins a difficult journey into the memories of his childhood in the Warsaw Ghetto and subsequent survival. As his experiences unfold, he haltingly recalls how he managed to escape the Ghetto and survive, thanks to his courageous rescuers. Out of his remembrances, the author nurtures not only the story of her husband's family history, but finds herself immersed in an insistent desire to honor Marian's rescuers. Through her poignant and compelling narrative, she revives Elzbieta's legacy of hope, caring and laughter for all of us to share.

"As a Pole, I highly appreciate the joint efforts of Susan and Marian to restore the memory of Polish Jews, former residents of my hometown... and the memory of my countrymen who risked their own lives as well as their families' lives whilst hiding and saving from death their Jewish friends, neighbors and even strangers.

How May I Serve?

by Karen Mathews

Our Price: $13.99

How May I Serve? is a guide to empower women who are struggling to find a way out of their troubles. I have tortured and abused myself for many years trying to find love, happiness and peace of mind.  Yet, the more I sought these things, the more they eluded me. Then, I realized it was an "inside" job. I had to learn to love myself, forgive myself and make peace with myself. So many women have been brought up with limiting beliefs about themselves from childhood. From the time I was conceived, I was an unwanted pregnancy. From the deep recesses of my subconscious mind, I programmed a tape of being unloved and unlovable. I acted and attracted circumstance after circumstance to validate this belief. I played the victim role very well. I did not know how to get out of my own way. The more I avoided looking at the cause of the problems; however, the worse they got. I hit my bottom upon finding out that my oldest daughter had a heroin addiction. This brought everything full circle. In order to save her, I had to change myself.

Karen Mathews has traveled extensively around the world to find her purpose in life. She has learned and discovered the answers were inside her all along. If she stays present in the moment, serves others and learns from her failures, the answers will reveal themselves. Karen is an empowerment coach, teaching people the laws of the natural world. She also practices reflexology, teaches Nia dance, gardens, and loves to take long walks. She also still travels the world. The greatest significance she can offer humanity is to serve and give her best, to shed light and give value to the world gives her great joy. Read more at Karen Mathews.

T.o.B.

by Greg Kemp and Willy Minnix

Our Price: $15.00

In the modern world, the factions of governments, religions, and military powers are scrambling to answer one question: Who controls the Fear that controls all people? Dr. Karol Seguin has been hired by her publishing company to document the day to day decisions of the current president of the United States. He has uncanny intelligence and universal popular regard. And, from his impending resume of distinction, his constituency has commissioned that his life be documented as in line with the great leaders of history. Karol and her acquaintances, Col. Thomas Graile and Justice Mel Sodeq, are bombarded with a flurry of new questions. Is there technology to boldly manipulate the many populations of the world by only one person? Are there secrets of antiquity that give hints and clues to a power greater than mortality? What is a legend? What is a conqueror? Ultimately, three questions exist: Is the world controlled by omnipotence or debilitation? Is it better to be omnipresent or to be continual in spirit? And, the greatest of these questions is: Will the minds of conquerable people fall by the individual who is omniscient or the individual who can impose confusion?

Greg Kemp is a school psychologist, rock guitar enthusiast, and an equal apologist to the use of long words and scheme philosophies in professional football. All is considered mere gust and dust when compared to just spending time with his wife and kids. Willy Minnix is a pastor, musician, graphic artist and author of several books covering topics such as music theory, theology and fiction. Willy has also released several CDs. He lives with his wife, kids and dog somewhere in the world. Read more at facebook.com/greg.willy.775.

Unsung

by Heather A. Hamilton

Our Price: $16.00

Unsung is a riveting emotional memoir about a daughter's mind breaking and a mother's heart breaking. It is one woman's journey to heal her daughter and find herself.

 

Unsung is a riveting, emotional memoir, not for the weak of heart, but for all who have wished for hearts capable of enduring in spite of loss. Unsung is about a mother and daughter’s battle to cope with schizophrenia, a disabling mental illness that resists treatment and affects the lives of everyone close to those living with it.

Unsung cuts scalpel-like to the rotten core of our current mental health care system, exposing pharmaceutical companies, mental health care centers, and psychiatrists for the often unconscionable role they play in doing everything but healing those who are mentally ill. It is a memoir in which the truth is unbelievable. And the unbelievable is true.

Fired with a mother’s fury and passion, laced with love and laughter, irreverently reverent about everything from affairs of the garbage industry to Zen, rich with one-of-a-kind friendships, it is one woman’s journey to heal her daughter and to find herself. The journey is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. There is romance so strong some readers will buy the book simply to read and reread Haley’s passionate encounters with Jake Welch — a German Italian bad boy and full-time mechanic, twelve years her junior. But there is more than one love story in these pages, along with many surprises. The memoir takes its readers through cross country moves, an eviction, a car wreck, hurricanes, a near drowning, the loss of two jobs, loss of credit, an audition for a reality TV show, and suicides.

Women of all ages will read Unsung, because it will take them from the place they are and the things they have feared to who they can be. Men will read Unsung for a thoughtful, funny woman’s take on who they are and who they aren’t. Those living with mental illness will read Unsung to learn and to grieve and to find hope. Those who love action and suspense, and thrill seekers, will read Unsung for an unbelievably believable adventure. Romantics will read Unsung for its unusual love story. Those who love true stories will read Unsung to connect with a mother’s real experience with her child’s illness.

Unsung is both timely, with our newfound awareness and appreciation of the fact women do blossom as they age, and topical, since most of our lives are affected in one way or another by mental illness. But it is much more than that. With its honest, often funny, always courageously tender human voice, Unsung is a memoir that urges its readers to hitch hike through stars, to fly through water, to swim the earth, and to dive down deep enough to find themselves.

Heather Hamilton wrote her first novella at the age of seven. She is a graduate of the Creative Writing program at the University of North Carolina at Asheville and a recipient of the Thomas Wolfe Memorial Award for Fiction. She is an avid runner. Her daughter Melissa’s courageous struggle with schizophrenia provided Heather with her inspiration for Unsung.

Stolen Light

by Claudia Riess

Our Price: $21.99

Stolen Light is a suspense novel set in the art world and involving the Italian Renaissance, the Cuban Revolution, as well as a love story. Cuba, 1958: the art collection of sugar plantation owner, American born William Delaney, is seized. Delaney is killed during the incident, and his pregnant wife flees Cuba, never to look back. Now, over fifty years later, Delaney's wife dies, and his daughter, Helen Gilmore, intent on “knowing” the father whose life was shrouded in secrecy, is determined to restore what she can of his legacy. She seeks the help of young Art News writer, Erika Shawn, whose boss hooks her up with a more seasoned hand, art historian, Harrison Wheatley. What begins as an academic endeavor quickly changes character when Helen is brutally murdered and Erika is anonymously warned to give up her assignment. Undeterred, she continues her investigation, Harrison following suit. Their quest leads them to finding what may be a Michelangelo drawing; to unraveling a mystery over a half century old; and to solving Helen's murder. Their sleuthing is complicated by their burgeoning passion, as irresistible and, in a sense, as threatening as their mission.

Turning Blue: A Life Beneath the Shield

by Lawrence Hoffman

Our Price: $24.95

As a kid growing up on Long Island, I struggled with an unknown psychological need to wear a uniform and a strong desire to be a part of an organization. My search would take me through Little League, Cub Scouts, and various fraternal organizations. This desire would only be fulfilled after joining the NYPD in February of 1984. Somewhere during my twenty-year career, I was transformed from that kid into a veteran New York City police detective. This is my evolution from a middle-class suburban kid with simple values who naively thought the "projects" were a homework assignment into a veteran detective working in some of the most unforgiving neighborhoods of New York City. With this transformation comes the ability to separate the daily exposure to the dark side of human nature from your own life-sustaining core beliefs. Many will fail to acquire this ability and fall victim to drugs, alcohol, divorce, crime, and even suicide. This is a process which I have come to call Turning Blue. This is my story of how I dealt with life-changing experiences at home while my gun belt and uniform hung safely in my locker. In my twenty years of experience as a police officer, I can honestly say that I have been scared and feared for my life. Could you go back to work after crying yourself to sleep, reliving your partner's screams as he lay bleeding to death in the backseat of your unmarked car, and the only thing keeping your heart in your chest was your department-issued bulletproof vest?

When he’s fired from his Wall Street IT job, Borden Duffield is certain things couldn’t possibly get much worse. But then, after his air guitar antics make him the star of a viral video, a call from his doctor brings even more cause for concern.

Suddenly, Borden is unemployed, overwhelmed, and facing the reality that he might not live another year. But when fate guides him to an Indian cooking demonstration, he suddenly sees hope in the form of the world’s most valuable spice—the little purple flowers of the saffron plant.

Joined by his wife Helen and his best friend Hill, Borden does everything he can to set his new idea in motion—including firing paintballs at local speeders and experimenting with “liquid ass.” Their destination? Amish country, Pennsylvania, where they’ll learn the secrets of growing saffron and begin gathering intel for their hopefully lucrative operation.

But when a clandestine group of criminals begins enacting its own dastardly plan, Borden could be out of luck yet again—and it’s not long before the group’s moneymaking venture transforms into a high-tech international caper.

Monday Messages: Reflections on Life, Ledership and Learning in Our Schools

by Lou Antonetti

Our Price: $11.99

While living the "code of conduct" in our high school of over 2,400 students, it was easy to see that procedures can only be enforced when the principles behind them are fully understood. The human side of education is something that is lacking as we prepare for state assessments and bring attention to those who conduct themselves inappropriately. The microcosm of a world we live in within our schools sometimes makes us rigid and non-trusting due to the need to control student behavior. We have found in our high school that student disciplinary referrals decreased by 50% because of the trust that was achieved with our students. By using life lessons in the formal, curriculum based education process, you not only promote good morals and values, but you remind people that there is a bigger picture. The weekly messages, quotes and vignettes contained in this book will hopefully inspire you to not only be a better educator, student or coach but also a better person for your family, friends and co-workers. It is important to reflect on our behavior since our reputation is based on our daily interactions and habits. I have never heard of anyone who has bought back their reputation once it was lost. Leadership by example, at home and in the workplace, along with an "ego-less" demeanor, will allow us to be great leaders, both in our schools and personal lives.

Incest, Murder and A Miracle :The True Story Behind the Cheryl Pierson Murder-for-Hire Headlines and the Power of Love

by Cheryl Cuccio, Robert Cuccio with Morgan St. James

Our Price: $18.99

 

This inspiring—and sometimes shocking—TRUE story is about love, trust, incest, murder and, yes, an actual miracle.

The producer of the 2017 Discovery ID TV episode featuring Cheryl Cuccio says, " I laud Cheryl Pierson Cuccio and Rob Cuccio for blazoning their traumatic pasts and valiant love story so that others who suffer in silence might be emboldened to seek help.

Like so many, I was first drawn to their story for its spectacle, but have come through it deeply humbled and indebted."

In 1986 Cheryl Pierson was a sixteen year old abuse and incest victim. Day after day her father placed the fear in her no one would believe her if she revealed their dirty secret. But Cheryl had made a promise to her mother, as she lay in her coffin, to protect her eight year old sister from the monster Cheryl's father had become.

To honor this promise and end the daily hell she endured, the distraught teenager hired a classmate to murder her father. The name Cheryl Pierson was in the national media for years, filled with assumptions and fabrications surrounding the murder, but her side of the story was never truly covered from her perspective. The one interview she did give to a reporter was while she was still in shock from what had transpired.

Now, after thirty years, Cheryl has come out of the shadows to tell her true story--what really happened behind the doors at 293 Magnolia Drive, and what the life she and Rob have shared has been like. She is a strong survivor and hopes to inspire courage in those who walk in her shoes, and to promote abuse and incest awareness with this book. That strength was called into action in 2012 and the result was a miracle!

Rampage 1982

by John F. Nolan and Bernard Shapiro

Our Price: Hardcover: $21.99/ Paperback: $16.99

Rampage 1982 is rooted in the true story of Long Island's most infamous crime spree. On Friday night, Memorial Day weekend 1982, five Brooklyn thugs, called the Belmont Avenue Boys, went to "get paid" on Long Island or as they called it, Babylonia, the biblical land of milk and honey. Their credo - if you want something, just take it - was demonstrated by the night's work of random shootings, rapes, sodomies, pistol whippings, robberies, and terrorism by forcing diner patrons to "undress and have sex with the person next to you." In an ultimate act of vulgarity, the Boys then urinated on several of the victims. Following their arrests and sentences of 3,000 years in prison, the outraged public learned of a defect in NY State law trimming the sentences to thirty years.


True crime merges with fiction......As news of the Boys release circulates thirty years later, in 2012, a product of one of the rapes discovers the truth of his conception, and vows to avenge his mother's degradation. Concocting a plan to snuff out the lives of the Boys, including his rapacious father, he recruits several victims of that night of horror, and he lures the Boys to a secluded warehouse, where appropriate justice is finally served.

The Book of Bradley

by Bob Bradley

Our Price: $21.50

The Book of Bradley is a self-help book for people who don’t really need any help but who still like to ask questions. Knowing that helps me out because now I can write whatever pops into my f***ing head.

My goal in answering questions was to write something original, lift the skirts of the Muse, get some traction. My unstated goal was to take control of your nervous system using black marks on a white background forcing you to scan your eyes from left to right and on down the page, pausing to enjoy the pictures before turning the page and locking onto the next word and the next and so on until you reach a saturation point where your brain can’t function normally, anymore, but has to reconsider its previous limitations, self-imposed or rather imposed outside the bounds of memory by insuperable gods, let’s call them that.

Now, you have to ask yourself: Do I want to keep reading? What if something happens? I have a lot of years dedicated to building and bolstering my belief system. Someone just lifted the latch on I don’t know what and I don’t know what’s going to happen once that door or portal opens. Holy sh*t. I’d better put this book back and not tell anyone about this. Unless… who are these gods and what have they done to me without my knowledge or consent? Tough questions. Tough questions. I guess there’s only one thing to do. I’ll let you answer this one. I got the rest.

When Women Become Invisible

by Victoria Janosevic

Our Price: $14.99

This autobiography describes the author's perspective on what happens to many women when they become middle aged. As her forties transition to her fifties, Victoria Janosevic notices that she is being progressively overlooked and unnoticed, to the point of eventually feeling invisible.

As a woman living in a youth-worshipping culture, she discovers that beauty and perfection are required more than ever, that women of the proverbial "certain age" are granted a swift and compulsory "divorce" from mainstream social (and popular) culture, and from relevance.

This "divorce" is a rude, intangible reminder that verifies she is not needed anymore, that she no longer resides in a desirable demographic.

It's disconcerting and insulting for many women to watch their individual value, on a sexually desirability scale, decrease and vanish. Of course it doesn't happen overnight. But the older a woman gets, she finds that one day it happens: life is different. The Bible has Ten Commandments, to which society has added an eleventh: Thou shalt not age.

The author was passionately driven to write this book. Why? She wants to remind women of a certain age that they are not alone. Writing her memoir to encourage herself, she found she could also be a positive voice of encouragement and renewed joy to others traveling along a similar path.

Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives.

by Anne Michaud

Our Price: $14.99

Why They Stay explores the possible reasoning and motivation of wives who stay with their politician-husbands after they cheat. Hillary Clinton couldn't have known in 1998 how her husband's high-profile philandering would play out. Would he be rehabilitated in the public eye?

She took the gamble. Had she left the marriage, today she might be the spurned wife of a retired politician instead of the first American woman to run for president on a major party ticket. Looking back on the path chosen by the nine political wives profiled in this book, we have the evidence to see a pattern as old as the dynastic maneuvering of England's medieval queens.

The women married to the "royalty" of our times, politicians, make similar cold calculations in order to hold onto their 'thrones' and their family's history-making potential. After covering politicians for decades, acclaimed columnist Anne Michaud switched her gaze to the women behind the cheating men. Drawing from multiple sources that span the Roosevelts' marriage to the more recent scandal involving Hillary Clinton's closest aide Huma Abedin (wife of sexter, Anthony Weiner), Why They Stay: Sex Scandals, Deals, and Hidden Agendas of Nine Political Wives argues that when it comes to the "power behind the throne," women in the limelight weigh the risks and rewards.

They remain loyal to their men, because of complex, often unconscious forces. From mapping a path to power to laudable notions of holding the family together, Michaud examines the uniquely challenging Faustian bargains that political wives grapple with, even as the public spotlight illuminates their every move.

Sima studied economics and sociology at Queens College in New York followed by an internship at Lehman Hutton on Wall Street. As a buyer and merchandiser for Le Firme and later for Akris at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City, Sima returned to her more creative passions. Sima teaches and co-runs an art program called “Learning to Look” at the Schechter Day School. She introduced Mothers Art World (MAW) to Cohen’s Medical Center and has had the absolute joy of watching children immersed in art while forgetting their pain and their illnesses even if just for two hours. Watching them experience their own “imaginative ways" impresses in Sima the power of creativity and artistic expression. Art helps children use both sides of their brains, embracing expression and imagination to create something wonderful. Teaching art history to youngsters in a way that encourages their creativity and interests rather than being intimidating is what inspires Sima to teach. The love she has for seeing their eyes brighten and their ideas form is what motivated the creation of MAW and its series of art history books, teachers’ curriculums, coloring books, songs and online projects. Paris, Manet, Mary, Mays, Justine and Ms. Simone all derive from Sima's wish to bring the gifts of imagination, music, fun and facts to children. Her own daughter with the same name inspired the character of Paris. The rest of the MAW kids were inspired by Sima's boys Jordan and Logan as well as the children that she has watched learn and grow while teaching them about art and creativity. Ms. Simone is a reflection of how Sima teaches and displays art throughout the classroom. She wants children to be able to experience art history in a way that inspires them to begin their own creations. All children (and adults too!) should have the experience of being told, “Great job,” “You can do it,” and “Bravo!” Making art gives children just that opportunity: to express, learn and feel a sense of accomplishment. Charitable work is a central part of Sima's life.

Max & Voltaire: Getting to Know You


by Mina Mauerstein Bail

Our Price: $16.95

Max and Voltaire is the first in a series of illustrated books about how embracing both the familiar and the different can make our lives continually interesting and rewarding. The messages about making new friends, adapting to change, tolerance, lending a helping hand and getting along with others are gently handled through the filter of a cat, Max, and a dog, Voltaire, and a supporting cast of furry friends and bipeds. Their touching and humorous adventures in a small town in France and in other countries challenge us to think about how special every day can be and that no matter how bad a situation is, it can change for the better. A fun read for children and animal lovers of all ages, Max & Voltaire: Getting to Know You, is a middle grade (8-12 years of age) illustrated chapter book about how embracing both the familiar and the different can make our lives exciting and rewarding.

"In her first in a large format illustrated chapter book series for early fluent readers, author Mina Mauerstein Bail has written a two-part story (each with six chapters) that encourages readers to get along with others.

In part one, readers are introduced to a kitten named Max that has been adopted by the Cupcake family. The Cupcake family has a dog at their home, so Max resides permanently in the bakery they own. While he enjoys the company and snacking on croissants during the daytime, he becomes lonely during the evenings when the Cupcake family returns home to their dog. Madame Cupcake finds him a new home with a lovely customer, Madame Rosemarie, who already has three cats. Each cat has their own personality and, through mutual respect, all of the cats learn to adjust to each other’s traits so that they can all get along. Something they all have in common, however, is a fear of dogs.

In part two, Madame Rosemarie adopts a dog that was in need of more attention than his family could offer. This dog is aptly named after a famous French writer, Voltaire, who wrote about tolerance and respect for others. Once again the cats must adjust to this newcomer and in doing so they learn that there is no need to be afraid of others simply because they are different.

The author has used short sentence structures for beginner readers; and color illustrations break up the text of the easy to digest chapters. While taking in a story of new beginnings and the power of kindness and helping others, children will enjoy the fun names (Madame Cupcake), the snippets of humor that are injected throughout, and the French backdrop and glossary of French words.

Max & Voltaire: Getting to Know You would make a nice read-aloud for a group setting and is also suited to individuals who are newly independent readers."The Children’s Book Review

Mina Mauerstein Bail, a mother, grandmother and sociologist, was born in Italy and grew up in upstate New York. She has traveled extensively and has lived and worked in many countries around the world. She resides with her husband and family in New York City. This is her first children's book.
