Alan Mindell's "The Closer" is Sunbury Press's best-selling novel of all time

Mechanicsburg, PA — Sunbury Press, the trade publisher based in Pennsylvania, has released its list of top selling novels of all time:

  1. The Closer by Alan Mindell — R. A. Dickey was the first knuckleball pitcher to ever win a coveted Cy Young Award–despite spending most of his career in the minor leagues.  Terry Landers, also a knuckleballer, is Dickey`s fictional counterpart in The Closer.  The main difference, aside from winning the Cy Young, is that at age thirty-three, Terry has never played in the majors. Once he finally gets his chance, what follows is the heartwarming story of his impact both on the pitching mound and with a family in distress. “The Closer is an Award Winning book. Written with extraordinary compassion and deep attunement to the human psyche, Alan deftly defines the keys to a positive mind and winning the Game of Life. A book that is sure to change minds. Alan outlines the secrets to success pertinent in the life of each and every reader. Everyone wants to be a winner. From ‘Loser’ to ‘Closer’ – don’t put it down until you’ve reached the end!” — online reviewer.
  2. the 100th human by Chris Fenwick — December 2012 – The final day of the 5000 year old Mayan calendar nears. The world is in turmoil – as wars and international tensions continue. People everywhere seem lost in the complications of day to day struggles – poverty – misfortune – anger and greed. A small team of scientists have uncovered a riddle concerning this “End of Days”. As they reveal the symbolic meaning of the riddle, their serendipitous mission is discovered by the Ancient Fraternity of the Veni Victus – determined to thwart such revelations. These two powers – of good and evil – converge. Only the spirits of the ancients know the outcome. The 100th Human is a spiritual quest delving deeply into matters of physics, metaphysics, evolution and the human condition. Join Jack, Apu and Alana as they race against time searching for those who can assist in revealing the mystery of the ancient symbols – before time literally runs out. (THIS TITLE IS OUT OF PRINT)
  3. Winter of the Metal People by Dennis Herrick — The Untold Story of America’s First Indian War. The first named war between the Europeans and the Native Americans was the nearly forgotten Tiguex War, which Spaniards and their Mexican Indian allies fought in 1540-42 against the Pueblo Indians along the Rio Grande, between present-day Albuquerque and Santa Fe in New Mexico. This historical novel “Winter of the Metal People” presents the first account of the war written from the Puebloan point of view. It follows a young Pueblo warrior who reluctantly takes leadership of his people in a time of crisis, overcoming self-doubt to lead Puebloans in successful guerilla warfare against the Spaniards. Praise for Winter of the Metal People and author Dennis Herrick: “A riveting historical novel of immense scholarship and insight. Dennis Herrick makes the story of the first American Indians in the West to face the military might of European forces as vivid and real as if Coronado’s expedition had ridden out of Mexico yesterday. Winter of the Metal People will forever influence your perception of the stunning landscapes and rich cultures of the Southwest.”—Margaret Coel, author of Killing Custer
  4. The Sign of the Eagle by Jess Steven Hughes — This breathtaking historical novel of action and suspense is set in the year 71 A.D. amid the exotic and vibrant streets of Ancient Rome. Macha, the strong-willed daughter of a legendary Celtic British king and wife of the Roman tribune, Titus, is the only one who can prove her husband innocent of treason, solve the murders of two slaves who possessed information that could have exonerated Titus, and ultimately save the life of the Roman Emperor Vespasian. Vivacious and iron-willed, Macha undertakes a dangerous journey and fight for her life to evade assassins through the city’s treacherous back alleys, notorious bath houses, and the awe-inspiring palaces of the Roman elite. With time running out to save her husband and the emperor from certain death, Macha can count on only two allies, the esteemed Senator Bassus-a family friend-and her faithful slave, a resolute and clever Moorish woman, Shafer. Arrayed against Macha and Titus are the wealthy and wicked Pollia, once scorned as a bride by Titus, and Falco, a military tribune and womanizer, who offers to be Macha’s protector once Titus is condemned and executed. Join Macha in her quest to exonerate her husband…and discover the real threat against the Emperor…
  5. The Cursed Man by Keith Rommel — WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF DEATH FELL IN LOVE WITH YOU? Alister Kunkle believes death is in love with him.  A simple smile from friend or stranger is all it takes to encourage death to kill. With his family deceased and a path of destruction behind him, Alister sits inside a mental institution, sworn to silence and separated from the rest of the world, haunted by his inability to escape death’s preferential treatment. But when a beautiful psychologist arrives at the institution and starts offering him care, Alister braces himself for more killings. When none follow, he tries to figure out whether he truly is insane or if death has finally come to him in the form of a woman.   COMING SOON AS A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE.

"The Silent Woman" is the long-awaited fourth installment in award-winning novelist Keith Rommel's "Thanatology Series"

Vero Beach, FL — Sunbury Press has released The Silent Woman, Keith Rommel’s fourth novel in the Thanatology series of psychological thrillers. The first two books, The Cursed Man and The Lurking Man, have already been made into Hollywood movies and are winning awards on the festival circuit. Both movies are slated for release and distribution later this year. The third novel, The Sinful Man, is scheduled for filming in April.

About the Book:

The past. 

A little girl is nearly kidnapped. A wild man runs loose, terrorizing a neighborhood. An older sister stops at nothing to protect her younger sibling from outsiders. 

The present.

A woman sits in a prison cell, left to rot alongside a ruthless tormentor on a mission to break her. But, little does she know, the prison holds more insidious monsters than the beastly cellmate who steals her food and trades away her belongings for seemingly irrelevant trinkets. 

The past.

Secret murders. A clandestine friendship. A broken pact between sisters. In an effort to cover up a string of devious acts, an unlikely coalition unites to bury their shared dark past. 

The present.

A woman continues to be tortured by her mocking bunkmate, as well as by her own past—and all the things she can’t recall about it. What has she done? Why is she here? Where is she? As she ponders and pieces together the mysteries of her history, she traverses a place that incarcerates her not only physically but also forces her deeper into the prison of her own mind.
