I’m not a famous author, at least not yet. Maybe I never will be.
But, as I take this journey, It seems like I am “arriving” more and more as an author of some note. I an no longer a nobody, that’s for sure.
As I look back at my journey as an author, I think back to all of the steps I have taken as I have lived this dream aspect of my life.
Each positive step, I might call a “stage of arriving.”

My new book on the history of the Yankees, The Least Among Them, is getting some great early reviews.
This book is available for pre-order now and will be released in early October 2021.
The Manhattan Book Review gave the book a glowing writeup which read in part:
“The Least Among Them by Paul Russell Semendinger tells the story – covering twenty-nine players in their unique Yankees history when they were given one chance to shine..
Semendinger does a truly fantastic job of setting the scene.
The book is also filled with pictures of baseball cards, historic photos, score sheets, and more…
The Least Among Them is a special book that shines a light on a number of Yankees who have probably not been talked about since their brief moments of fame..
It is a true gem of a piece of baseball history.“
The following is the latest press release from my publisher, Artemesia Publishing:
“(The Least Among Them) is the ultimate insider book.” – Marty Appel
“This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond.” – Jonathan Eig

Readers’ Favorite recently reviewed my novel, Scattering the Ashes.
The review was glowing!
Scattering the Ashes earned Readers’ Favorite’s prestigious 5-Star Rating.
The reviewer noted:
The narrative was perfectly paced and incredibly rich with details.
Sam’s voice proved to be exactly what the reader needed to immerse themselves in the narrative and feel each part of the story resonate inside their heart.
Scattering the Ashes was just as self-reflective as it was entertaining.
I enjoyed the descriptions of the places where Sam went, I enjoyed the way the story flowed and I loved the way Sam over thought everything (that was common and human of him!).
Scattering the Ashes by Paul Russell Semendinger was phenomenal.
I was so thrilled to read this wonderful review for my novel, “Scattering the Ashes.”
I am looking forward to another great author event on March 18, 2019 at the Oakland, New Jersey Public Library.
I appreciate all of the support, kindness, and encouragement from so many.
I hope to inspire many people tomorrow to help them realize that, like me, they truly can achieve their dreams.
