Inning #8: Baseball Season!

It’s here! Baseball From A to Z is now in stores! For many people the long winter days are over and springtime means BASEBALL! (And if you are still in your down coat, just pull out the old mitt, oil it up, and let the sweet smell of leather remind you of a summer day.)

I remember little league games followed by mugs of root beer at the A&W. Sitting in the stands at Tiger Stadium in 1984 when nearly every game was sold out. Who doesn’t thrill at the one of a kind sound of the crack as ball meets bat right on the sweet spot. (And if you ask me, there ought to be a constitutional amendment against aluminum bats!).

I invite you to visit Baseball From A to Z for an inside look at some of the art for the book, by a truly gifted illustrator, Macky Pamintuan. And tell me in a comment below something, anything – that the coming of springtime makes you yearn for. I’ll give away a copy of The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail to a randomly selected commenter. Or share this post on Facebook or Myspace and you can be doubly entered (make sure to pop back and tell me you posted to Fbk or MSp).

Play Ball!


  1. The best part of spring (and anyone who lives where I do would agree) is the disaperence of snow! But with that I look forward to warm weather, the cool breeze and the chance to sit outside with a book. Easter(going outside, running around. Okay, I’m too old for that but I still think of it) also is something I look forward to and it looks like this year is going to be a beautiful Easter (It is also the day Jesus rose from the grave, which is even better).

    1. I’m right there with you Rachel! There is nothing like Spring. The winters are long here in Michigan, and beautiful in their own way, but I’m ready for Spring and Summer. Thanks for stopping by the blog and good luck in the contest!

    1. Hi Ms Yingling! Thanks for stopping by. The third Youngest Templar Book will be out October 28th. It is called The Youngest Templar: Orphan of Destiny. Thanks so much for supporting it!
