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.”

UPCOMING APPEARANCES!

I will have a few upcoming appearances in the next two weeks:

On July 20, I will be the featured speaker at the Passaic County Baseball Series.

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!)

Stages of “Arriving”

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.”

Me On The Radio – Quite An Honor

One of the most wonderful parts of being an educator and a writer is that my ideas and words seem to inspire other people and bring them joy.  

I am absolutely honored (and humbled) to be featured on WCBS News Radio 880 A.M. in New York City. 

Thank you Sean Adams and WCBS!
