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.

Therone Shellman

Therone Shellman I must have been like ten yrs old. I got my first magazine subscription. It was a boy-scout mag. I would get each edition and read it from front to back, and eagerly wait for the next one to arrive.
Therone Shellman's mission is to write entertaining and insightful books for parents, singles, and young adults. Becoming an author has been a dream of his since childhood. Therone's story is inspirational and motivational. He spent time in and out of jail during his late teens through early twenties. During his incarceration, Therone started writing about his life experiences. In 1989 he submitted his work to several major publishers but was ultimately turned down. His writing style was too gritty and raw for most major publishers at that time. Now, at 33, Therone plans to bring a whole new brand of hustle to the literary game, vowing to become the P Diddy/ Jay-Z of the written word.
"I'm a play by the rules to get in. And then make up new ones as I go along. One day there will not be a reader between the age group of 18-35 that will not know who I am." Therone is often asked what compels him to write. His answer "I am the gatekeeper between fiction and reality" - These words are reflected in his writing. Goals: To one day be considered one of the greatest writers and visionaries. Build "Third Eye Publishing Inc" into a full service publishing company. Write screenplays, and manage a team of screenplay writers. Most of all become a big influence in the markets of literature and visual arts. And last but not least contribute my views and arts for the advancement of society as a whole.
Message: Through my eyes and stories I plan to tell the human experience. Not just to place blame or fault. But also to educate and provide solutions by causing you to think in ways that you may of never had before. Writing is my freedom. Someone once told me "What good is it to have all this knowledge if you are not giving it to those who need it the most".
Best Book: The Mis-Education of the Negro, by Carter G. Woodson
Best Novelist: Walter Mosley
Hobbies: Writing, reading, debating and building with like minds, exercising.
Therone resides in Ronkonkoma, New York. He is a bachelor, seeking to accomplish some long wished goals before settling down with the right woman.

"Love Don't Live Here" The first book from a generational series. A story about two black women in their early 20's and takes place during the early 1970's into the 80's.

Barbara loves her boyfriend Trini dearly but finds out the hard way when he leaves her while she's six months pregnant, that love is not always what it seems. Having to raise their son Jermaine by herself poses to be a great task.

Like Barbara, Beverly also becomes a single mother but through much different circumstances. Her boyfriend Malik, a conscious black man in his early 20's a member of the Black Panther party, winds up getting killed during a bank robbery. This leaves Beverly to fend for herself and two children, Derrik and Tinesha. Being a woman she knows what it takes to raise Tinesha into womanhood, but is lost when it comes to Derrik.

The two women invite us into the world of relationships and single motherhood. In the end we all find out that it's all about doing and being the best that one can be.

In the end the story begins to materialize to the point where the lives of these two adolescent males begin to evolve into a cycle of confusion-leaving you the reader to wonder-what's to happen and become of it all.
