Hello everyone and for baseball fans, welcome to another offseason – boo! Here’s an update on where I’m at with the Brewers book, plus I’ll throw a little bit in about the blog for good measure:
I’m working on expanding my Bibliography at the request of the editor. This should be done soon. Basically it’s a list of all the sources I used in writing the book – like interviews with players, sound recordings, books, magazines, newspaper articles, etc. It is not to be confused with the list of Sources I already compiled, which lists sources for quotes used in the book.
I’m also still in photo acquisition mode for the book. I have a couple of decent leads and a good idea of what I’d like to see used in the book.
I do not have a release date yet, but will keep you all posted when I find out more. Hopefully it’ll come out not too long after the Brewers win the 2018 World Series! I do have a “final” deadline of March 1, 2018, to have everything together on this project. McFarland is working on the book behind the scenes – mainly reading through at the moment.
As for the blog, soon I will be making a list of ideas for possible posts in 2018. I anticipate a mix of baseball, family, and stuff from my archives once again. I have a few special “on this date in Brewers history” posts already in the works. I also plan to dig a bit deeper into the “Brewers Classic Opponents” series as I feel I barely scratched the surface in 2017.
One other minor thing related to this site. I just realized that I never added my contact email to the ‘About’ page. Promised it would be there a while ago and it totally slipped my mind. It’s firstname.lastname@example.org and is now listed on the ‘About’ page.
As always, thanks for following me! Cheers!
