The bad news is: Our pub date has been delayed a little. We're looking at early October now.

The good news is: If you buy the book, we'll throw in the last chapter for free.

All About the Amalies

Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe figures into the plot of our book. But only now did I find out this about her, from the Extra Bases blog:

Benjamin grew up in Newton and has been following the Red Sox since ... well, before she was born. Her mother was in labor and ready to leave for the hospital but her father wondered if he would be OK to wait until Yaz batted in the next inning before they left.

Light Tower Power

The light towers have become our "mascot," so here are some shots I took recently at Fenway. Above, the tower from atop the Green Monster. Click to enlarge.

Below, me atop the Monster with tower above. (Don't look at this one too long, you'll start thinking about the un-even-ness of nostrils, and you don't wanna do that....)

And finally, a Fenway hawk landing on a tower.

Actual Dirty Water

Naturally, I've been doing a lot of web searches on "dirty water" to see when and where our book is getting mentioned. And I have to say, I'm learning a lot about dirty water! (The stuff, not the book/song...)

Did you know that in Baghdad, two-thirds of the raw sewage produced flows untreated into rivers and waterways?

Or that Doheny State Beach in California exceeded maximum allowable levels of indicator bacteria in 55 percent of the samples taken in the past year?

Let's clean the earth's water, people. You can start by ordering TWO copies of Dirty Water, the book--one to read and one to display in your window to warn everyone of the dangers of unclean water supplies...

By the way, thanks to everyone who's pre-ordered already. It amazes me how many we're selling considering it's not even out yet! And even more thanks to people who have promoted it already on your websites.

We are already planning readings, signings, etc. One very special event will be at a Red Sox bar in New York City. Stay tuned for all the details...

M Words

The Amazon and B&N pages for our book now feature a cover image. While it's not the final version, it's close.....

And to continue on the topic of the last post, another part of the '07 season is history, as Manny has been traded. Despite that my mom and I are huge Manny fans, his part in our book wasn't too big. But, again, our book takes place during the '07 season, not "today." So it's okay. At least that's what I keep telling myself....
