It’s been over 24 hours since the book launch, and since then, I’ve heard words of congratulations, encouragement, and a few people who say I inspire them to tackle their own writing projects. These sentiments couldn’t make me happier. I hope I’ve inspired others to write and publish. That makes my day!
Because there are 22 stories in the collection, and because I want to showcase them each in their own way, I’m going to share each story’s promo from The Postcard and Other Short Stories & Poetry. I’m also busy setting up my press room on the site which will contain information about me and my books.
Here’s today’s promo. It’s from a short story included in the book—the only one about baseball as I harken back to my days working in the sport—called The Slump. I thought it was appropriate since tonight is Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game. And it’s only the second baseball story I’ve written besides Baseball Girl, my second novel.
The Slump is the story of a Major League Baseball pitcher’s slump, the reporter who covers it, and the future Hall-of-Famer who acts as the middle man when things get dicey.
