C&B BOOKS, was started in 1995, by Carol Rogers & Brenda Piper.The motivation behind this book business, was the lack of affordable books written by black authors.  We decided to become an asset to our Youth and the African American community in a whole.  We offer our books for less then the major stores, we knew this would provide our readers with a wider variety of reading material. We have, titles for all ages in all catagories, fiction, non-fiction, spiritual, inspirational, educational etc.

C&B Books Presents K.L. Belvin

I was born, and continue to reside, in South Jamaica, New York. I am a father of five, High School Dean of Students for the New York City Department of Education for over eleven years, a born again Christian and happily married. My lovely supportive wife is my strength, best friend, and pre-editor of my work and the work we publish. Together we run our own boutique publishing company, called Bravin Publishing LLC. In the future we hope to give authors a home to get their work produced and read without worry of being taken advantage of.

We manage to keep everything together by sustaining a united front in marriage and business. The publishing company is also a way of giving unknown authors a way to publish their work themselves and our way of presenting ourselves as role models for today’s youth in the African American community.

I obtained my A.S. in business from Kingsborough Community College; City University of New York, a B.S. in Education from York College; City University of New York and a Master’s Degree in Education, specializing in Curriculum Writing, Assessments and Teaching from Walden University. I anticipate beginning my PhD studies in the near future.

“A Man in Transition” is my first completed work and was the first book published by Bravin Publishing. Over the years I changed my focus from erotic based content to romance, spiritual inspirations and social promotion due to religious choices. I hope to offer the world-focused insight of a man who has completely changed his life from one of self fulfillment to helping and supporting others. I believe my writing expresses my growth as a man who, now, attempts to offer counsel, entertainment and guidance to all he meets.

Book Description
What lies in the soul of a man? Love, laughter, heartache and sorrow? Pride, fear, rage and contentment? The true measure of a man lies in his heart and in his soul. Trials are measured and grounded by inner feelings and the expectations placed on them and they persevere. The weights of the world sometimes are carried on their shoulders. From socio-economic barriers, to racial tensions, broken hearts, to new found faith-experience the plight of man, as only he can explain it, told from his perspective and from his heart. Through expressions of the history of his past, the reality of his present, and the optimism of his future, these gifted men relate what stirs a man’s soul and ignites his actions and his thinking.
Men the world over have always been much maligned and strident ina how life portrays and prefaces their successes and failures. This collection of enlightening stories personifies the sentiment, faith, resilience and love embodied in the creation God made in His own image. The Soul of a Man is a Divine truth and an affirmation of the passion running through the minds of men where hearts and souls are bared.
Our men are so much more than what society feeds us. They are powerful, strong; they fear, they rejoice, they love, they care. Our men are much more than criminals, rapists, pimps, and drug dealers. They are fathers, sons, brothers, ministers, teachers, friends, and confidants who have a soul, and have claimed victory over their circumstances and they have a story to tell,” tell,”

Book Description
As a man travels through life many things affect the way he chooses to walk his path. Some may run and see nothing, some may quit and stay right where they are, and yet others will grow as they walk, taking in each moment as they pass by. A Man in Transition is a reflection of my path and the variables that affect my steps. I was never a child that considered God would even think of giving me talent enough to write anything on this scale. Well as you grow and mature you start to have many experiences in your life. The Lord’s voice grows stronger and even if you go in a different direction you’re still going to experience what he wants for you, it just wont make as much sense until you give in and listen. There is love and emotion that comes along the way as your life shapes into form. The love you have for God, your kids, and of course finding a good woman. There is passion for the same things. There is reflection, when you take the time to look back and ask the hard questions of yourself. This book gives you all that and then some.
