Author Carolyn Angiolillo grew up on the friendly, albeit at times mean streets of the Italian section of Brooklyn known as Williamsburg. The atmosphere there in the 1950s-60s-70s steeped in the aroma of home-cooked meals, fresh foods from neighborhood shops which included garlic for the palate, and listening to Caruso and other opera singers for the hearts and minds of the locals. A Brooklyn Saga: Stories from the Stoop traces the steps of Angie Carpello as she sits on her stoop and navigates her life amongst the Italian Mafia, the dichotomies of the Roman Catholic Church, and Old World Italian culture. Little does Angie know, that as she grows up playing stickball and games like Ringolevio and Johnny-on- the-Pony with neighborhood friends, that her life will dramatically change when she meets Wengchan Liang, a hitman from mainland China.
Angiolillo and her co-author, biographer/novelist Ronald Joseph Kule, create not only a deliciously accurate portrayal of the diversities of the Williamsburg Brooklyn of her early years but also with their wild imagination and devilish and cleverly intermingled characters, a tale of international intrigue and redemption that appeals to Brooklynites, big-city dwellers, and history buffs. Italian-Americans and their elders from the Old Country lend to this read may be as much as the rich heritage they inherited.

— Jessie S., Fundraising Consultant
“The difference between the data in this book and other sales books is its simplicity and applicability. Kule’s book removes the ‘effort’ and that little sensation of panic you can get in sales, where you feel you have to say all the right things to close the person standing in front of you and make sure they buy now!”
— Kathy Sweigart, Personal Consultant
“I’m a techie… For over 25 years, I have had trouble controlling people (prospects); they tend to revolt. With 'Listen More Sell More' I learned that by first getting their attention and then directing it, I can create interest. Then, the benefits start rolling out of me in a creative and fun way. It would take me an hour to list all the wins I’m having from this book. And the definition of a Closing Question... great advice.” — Robert Hammer, Jewelry Sales, Chicago, Illinois
Today, culinary programming is a mainstay on American televisions from the reality competitions of Top Chef, Iron Chef, and Chopped to The Food Network and beyond. Well before Gordon Ramsay and Bobby Flay ruled prime time, one young German American chef, Friedemann Paul Erhardt, became America's biggest food TV celebrity, boasting fan base numbers eight times greater than legendary Julia Child's.
Known as Chef Tell on-air, Erhardt rose from Philadelphia bad-boy restaurateur to nationally renowned superstar overnight. Now, the biography Chef Tell... offers his entire, inspiring and turbulent life story, where we not only meet the charismatic personality who charmed and educated foodies across America, and challenged the whole culinary industry, but also the quick-witted perfectionist whose highs and lows off-camera earned him admirers and enemies.
Personal accounts from friends and colleagues, color photographs, even a never-before-published seven-course dinner menu for home cooks to try, as well as the empathetic, excellent storytelling of its author, make this a must-read biography for fans of food, cooking, and television. And, believers in the American dream.
With forewords by Emmy Award-winning TV hosts Regis Philbin and Chef Walter Staib.

About the Cover Artist: Zhou Shu Liang was born in China and raised in a family of artists. He studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangzhou. Liang furthered his art study in the United States in 1982. He earned his BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Arts in 1986 and his MFA in Painting at Boston University in 1989.
Liang received his great inspiration in this country while studying and painting the Wampanoag Indian culture at the outdoor Museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This newfound interest fired his imagination, and he began to focus his painting primarily on Native American Indian cultures and their traditional ways of life. Liang’s obvious passion for the Indians as a people, coupled with his emphasis on historical accuracy, adds strength and truth to his portrayals.
Among the many awards Liang has received are: The David P. Usher Patrons’ Choice Award, Master of the American West, 2009; the President’s Award for Excellence, Oil Painters of America, 2005; Best of Show Award and People’s Choice Award, the American Society of Portrait Artists, 1998; the Arthur Ross Award for Painting, Classical America, New York, 1992; and the Lila Acheson Award for Painting, the Society of American Illustrators, 1986.
Liang is represented by Trailside Galleries in Jackson, Wyoming and Scottsdale, Arizona.
In 2012, a few veteran players returned to try for a three-peat ~ a feat completed once only by Southern California in 1972. The rest of the new Gamecocks squad was made up of fresh men hardly expected to have a winning season let alone win a college world series.
Still, the 2012 season turned magical!
Wet-behind-the-ears freshmen coalesced into a winning team led by returning ace Michael Roth and bullpen fireman Matt Price, who were playing their final season with the Gamecocks.
A starry night at Carolina Stadium saw Roth's masterful final performance as a Gamecock propel the reborn team into the last available berth at Omaha and a chance at the three-peat. What happened that night drew high praise from the opposing coach: "... as a baseball fan and somebody that really loves the game — Roth's performance was 'Poetic Justice.'"
The rest of this spell-binding baseball story -- written by the internationally published author who co-wrote CAROLINA BASEBALL: PRESSURE MAKES DIAMONDS and its eBook edition PRESSURE MAKES DIAMONDS A TIMELESS TALE OF AMERICA'S GREATEST PASTIME -- reveals an insider's view of a miraculous season of wins that excited Gamecock Nation fans and will thrill everyone who loves baseball, young or old!
When he is unable to come back to battery, his jet-set-lifestyle, Manhattan friends abandon him, except for three women, who aim to help his recovery, each for their own very different reasons.
One is rebounding from the recent death of her husband after a long illness; another, a deja-vu devotee, senses the possibility of a predestined, romantic liaison; and Carmela Ariana, a childhood, tomboy friend of Almarón's, walks among the wounded-in-love after coming-of-age abuses have nearly shattered all of her hopes of ever finding real love and romance.
Ariana alone knows why Almarón's lover rejected him, and what happened to her after, but she fears the truth will devastate her longtime friend and push him away forever.
Almarón's journey brings him and these friends through a series of haphazard events, leading to the brink of their finding brand-new lovers, but only after he traverses a tightrope of daydreams and nightmares that take him as far back as the 11th century and through his attempts at sexual escapades with himself and would-be lovers in his pubescent and collegiate years.
The process brings him to understand what he cherishes most about men and women, and especially his closest friend Ariana.
If finding everlasting love means each of us having to face intimate truths about ourselves no matter how hard or strange, then Almarón's and Ariana's story can teach us how to trust each other in the name of peace and love.
In truth, we all seek the kind of romance these two hapless people crave. And everyone faces the same omnipresent choice in the war of the sexes: to rise above the fray and win love against all odds, or fail in the attempt.
The winding road that takes Almarón and Ariana by surprise time after time also makes "Ruined by Murder Addicted to Love" a surprisingly wonderful, emotional roller-coaster, five-star read.
