The Whirlwind Begins
Updated: Feb 4, 2018
So it's finally February, 2018, a month that I thought would never get here. The day -- the day -- I've been waiting for, February 27th, once seemed so far away. And now it's mere weeks away.
When my editor first told me the intended publication day for ONE GOAL, I will admit that I blanched a bit. February? For a soccer book? How could that work?
But this book, as we have always known, is about so much more than soccer. And I cannot imagine a better moment in American life for the story of the Lewiston Blue Devils to be out there.
All of the things that go into getting a book into readers' hands are starting to get into gear. The TODAY show's Jenna Bush Hager just finished a stint up in Lewiston talking to players and coaches, the key characters of the book; I sat down with the show about two weeks ago to do my part. This week, I start taping some radio interviews, from regional to NPR, and am busy answering the questions of bloggers and podcasts and the like.
Where's the longest stint? Maine, of course.
