Have You Heard?

A while back several regular readers of this blog were encouraging me to write a book. Well, as most of you know by now, I did just that, I wrote a book. At least I thought most of you knew. For those of you weren’t aware, the book is called “Some Kenosha Softball” and was made available June 14th. It was a lot of work but it was also a lot of fun putting it together.

The most enjoyable section of the book to write was “Some Tales”. That’s where you will find stories about road trips, battles with umpires and a grizzled veteran that single-handedly prevented an All-Star game from becoming a disaster. All of the stories are amusing, some even a bit raunchy and they might even spark some memories.

That’s what this book is about. Memories.

If you haven’t purchased a copy yet and would like to, there are several ways to do so. If you live in Kenosha, the easiest way would be to go to Sister Act Painting and Creative Treasures located at 3816 Roosevelt Road right next to Clay’s Tap. Sister Act is an eclectic store with something for everyone, including my book!

The hours at Sister Act are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday and 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday. The owner, Sharon Ekern-Buege, has “persuaded” me to do a book signing on July 24th. I will keep you posted on the details.

If you live outside of Kenosha there are a couple of ways to get your hands on my book. One is email me at and I will get back to you with the details. The other way is to use the link to Blurb located on the right side of the page. Either way will work, but I will ship it Priority Mail for $2.00 less and you will get it much quicker. Plus I will personally sign it!

It doesn’t matter whether you played softball or were a fan of softball. If you like this blog, I guarantee you will enjoy my book. Okay, that’s the end of the commercial. Until next time…from the booth.

Even if you know nothing about soft ball this book is a very good read.

Thank you Sue. I do believe that you were the first person to purchase my book - and you live in England!
