My publishing company is proud to announce three new books — and the chance to win Kindle versions!

The Washington Nationals and Their Grand Tour of 1867 by Frank Ceresi and Carol McMains is the amazing real-life story of a Civil War era baseball team called the Washington Nationals, filled with unforgettable characters, many baseball firsts, and some astounding artifacts.

A Metal Fan’s Notes is a collection of a headbanger’s musings, playlists, reviews and rants from metal blogger (and my son) Ben Apatoff. He says he hopes to inspire readers “to investigate, reconsider or start a fight over some of the music described herein. What are the best Iron Maiden songs about famous literature? How does Axl Rose make a small group of people cry in his presence? What happens when you play Faith No More’s Epic on a tavern jukebox? Turn the e-pages and find out.”

The Baker’s Son: Tales of My Baltimore Childhood is retired psychoanalyst Earle Silber’s memories of growing up in a large Jewish family in Depression-era Baltimore. It is filled with vivid and evocative details from the perspective of a child and the deep insights of a man looking back on his life and family. These stories of family, school, and growing up are moving and memorable. Best-selling author Judith Viorst (Necessary Losses) says, “Earle Silber brings the sights, smells, tastes, and texture of his Baltimore childhood to vivid life in this richly detailed, lovingly recollected memoir. Generous but unsentimental, both innocent and wise, The Baker’s Son beautifully reconstructs and honors the past.”
