"The novel will make great holiday gifts for baseball fans!" a reader emailed me. Yes, that’s the idea! 

A higher-up at Inkshares emailed last week and told me that they are impressed by what YOU HAVE BEEN DOING--the pre-orders and support. He also came up with the catchphrase, "Field of Dreams" meets "The Time Traveler’s Wife." That’s the way to talk to Hollywood!

Hi Friends,

Today, Friday, March 29, from 4:30pm to game time, at the parking lot at the A’s-Angels game, I’ll be asking people, "Do you like to read great books?" and talking with them, and handing out the GOING, GOING, GONE! postcard! If you’re going to the game, email me and we’ll meet up (south parking lot).

If everybody updated here clicks one, single, solo, uno, un more pre-order, we’ll hit the mark. So, please, just one more time, and we can get on to the phase of book production. If you’ve bought ten, then please ask your husband, wife, barrista to order one.

#592. Help climb to the top! (Perhaps at the game, later, the Angels’ Albert Pujols will hit a homer; it’ll be cool to adjust his count, as well as the one for GOING, GOING, GONE!)
