It’s only 20 days until The Baseball officially comes out, and there are a few new book reviews. The biggest one just appeared on About.com. Here’s a screen shot of the first part of it:
Click here to read the whole thing, and FYI, baseballs have 108 stitches, not 104 as the writer mentioned in the first paragraph. (Duh.) Big thanks to my friend Todd Cook for sending me the link. I might not have seen this otherwise.

In other media news, I was interviewed today for nearly two hours by a graduate journalism student from Columbia University. He has to write one story per week for one of his classes, and the stories usually end up hitting the national news wire, which means that bigtime newspapers sometimes pick them up. His story about me won’t be ready for a few weeks, so I’ll post an update if I hear anything.
Moments after I posted this entry, my publisher sent me this:
Hot damn! Booklist is pretty big in the publishing world, so this is great. They reviewed my last book four years ago and said nice things then too. Can’t wait to read more reviews. Let me know if you see any. Sometimes I miss stuff.
