Cincinnati Book Publishing announces the February 2015 release of Pinstripes and Penance: The Life Story of Ex-Yankee John Malangone, a new book by Michael Harrison. The biography reveals the experiences of the talented kid who so easily impressed Yankee scouts when he hit a ball into the upper deck at Yankee Stadium that they gave him a contract.
Although seen as an outwardly funny man, internally John was writhing with pain. For decades, he never revealed the traumatic childhood accident that haunted him and affected his baseball career.
Yankee fans and baseball enthusiasts will naturally be interested in the sports aspect of Malangone's story as a former prospect for the New York Yankees organization. But general readers will be enthralled with the story of the internal battles John waged in overcoming his personal demons. His stories of Mafia influence in his Little Italy neighborhood in East Harlem give a personal and dynamic perspective to the book.
Pinstripes and Penance is available for late February 2015 delivery.

CBP is pleased to announce the release of the ebook and print book: Black Walls Turn Gray. This novel by combat veteran Brad Jones is about the consequences of modern warfare and the struggles that veterans face in readjusting to civilian life. Young, fit, and from a military family, Corporal Quince Magowan sees serving his country as his patriotic duty. Unfortunately, fighting in his generation's war proves to be more than just a physical battle. This is a compelling story of filial and romantic love, of friendship, duty and heroism, and of America's challenges in treating its veterans for the invisible wounds of modern warfare. Author and Afghanistan veteran Brad Jones brings this great American dilemma home in Black Walls Turn Gray, his first published novel. This is an important book, which will inform and inspire. It is by turns heart-breaking and heart-warming, but ultimately life-affirming. Book clubs will be rewarded with its rich material for lively discussions.
