Help a brotha out …


Let me tell you about author appearances. Unless your name is:

Troy Aikman.

Jennifer Lopez.

John Feinstein.

… they’re awfully uncomfortable. There’s you, a stack of books, a half-empty room. We do them, because, well, we do them. In this case, I grew up in Mahopac and absolutely love my hometown’s public library. As a kid, I’d go there and the librarians would present me with a stack of sports biographies they placed aside. So whatever they ask for, I now give. I owe them.

Anyhow, I can’t promise amazing times—but I’ll bring cookies.

  1. Long ago I worked at a somewhat prominent Barnes and Noble. It would get a lot of the book tours at least. The more successful ones would engage directly with the crowd. There would be a little bit of a lecture with some Q&A. I think your topic(s) would be fit well with that format.

    Good luck. If I lived anywhere near the neighborhood (or state), then I would swing by.

  2. This is a great book. Bought it on Amazon through the iphone kindle app. The reading experience on there kind of sucked, but the book was great.

    Just would like to add that I really enjoyed The Bad Guys Won. One of my favorite sports books of all time. I was greatly inspired by that book in ways I can’t even begin to describe.
