How Can I Get A Signed Copy?

Running and Writing

Writing and running.

Running and writing.

My mind is full of words and sayings that are helping to continue to push me ever forward…

My personality is such that I can’t help but set goals, push to reach them, and then dream of bigger and greatest things.

They say I’m a dreamer, but I’m the only one…” (John Lennon)

Good is the enemy of great.” (Jim Collins)

Good enough, never is.” (Debbi Fields)

In just over fifteen weeks, I will be running the Pittsburgh Marathon (with my son Ryan).

Special Preview: From Compton to the Bronx

I am thrilled to share this excerpt from my collaboration with Roy White on his autobiography,

From Compton to the Bronx.

This book will be released in April 2023, but is now available for pre-order.

***

Initial reviews for this book have been tremendously positive. Here is one:

“Roy White is as dignified a Yankee as there has ever been, one of the many reasons a generation of fans (myself included) grew up imitating his stance.

Paul Semendinger does a masterful job capturing the essence of the great left fielder. This is a must-read about the most underrated Yankee of all time.”

Ian O’Connor, Four-time New York Times bestselling author of “The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter”

A Novel Idea!

People from across the country can’t often come to New Jersey (or nearby) for an author visit, yet people sometimes wish for signed and personalized copies of books – especially heart-warming stories of family, faith, love, compassion, and growth like Scattering the Ashes. (If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?)

I decided to give fans, readers, and everyone the opportunity to purchase a signed and personalized copy of my wonderful novel.

Scattering the Ashes!

It is great to be an author. It’s great to receive positive reviews for the books I write.

I just received the following e-mail regarding my novel, Scattering the Ashes:

“I want to let you know how much I enjoyed your novel.

I loved the characters and I could parallel Sam’s relationship with his dad to mine with my father in many ways. My father wouldn’t have thought to have me scatter his ashes, but if he had, Yankee Stadium would have been first and Cooperstown probably second.

The fact that so much of it happened in local NJ settings also added a nice twist.

So I wanted to congratulate you for a great job and thank you for the book. It was a fun read.”

The New Books Network Podcast Featuring “The Least Among Them”

***

I was recently interviewed on the New Books Network Podcast to discuss The Least Among Them.

You can listen to this interview below.

From the site:

The Least Among Them: 29 Players, Their Brief Moments in the Big Leagues, and a Unique History of the New York Yankees (Artemesia, 2021) is a most special baseball book that looks at the New York Yankees history in an original, unique, and never before written manner. Throughout their history, the New York Yankees have been defined by the legends and the successes of their most famous players. But, as part of their long history, the Yankees have also fielded players that have become lost to history. This book is those players’ story, telling the unique histories of the men whose entire major league baseball career lasted but a single game with that game being played as a New York Yankee. While these players may be forgotten, their stories are compelling. Filled with a unique Yankee history, single game stats, and a love of baseball, The Least Among Them tells the story of baseball’s most successful franchise in an entirely new way.

An Author Lecture: Paul Semendinger “The Least Among Them” is the third of the series and takes place Wednesday, July 20th at 6:30pm. It’s the day after the All-Star Game, and the slowest day on the sports calendar. Keep those All-Star vibes going and join author Paul Semendinger as he discusses his book, “The Least Among Them.” This book tells the unique histories of the men whose entire Major League Baseball career lasted but a single game, with that game being played with the New York Yankees. While these players may be forgotten, their stories are compelling. The lecture takes place at the Passaic County Arts Center at the John W. Rea House in Hawthorne.

On July 23, I will be the featured speaker at the Babe Ruth Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.

Come out to meet and talk with me as I shares my love and knowledge of baseball with others. (Bring your baseball glove, I might even have a catch with you!)
