Site Updates – Published Article, Queries, and Book Language

It has been a few weeks since I provided a site update, so with the long weekend ahead of me I thought now would be a good time to share a few things going on in my world.

First, I am finishing the draft of my article for a local paper on choosing the right high school.  Keep an eye out for that at the end of the month, and I will have a link to share.  I’ll have to add a page for published paper works!

Second, I have been churning out a few article queries on some things I know a lot about (beer, DC area politics, history) with a few nibbles.  While I will admit I have not been as determined as I should be a few days this week in sending in queries (sleep/play tugged me away), there is some great momentum going with a number of these to be refined and accepted soon.

Third, my new book is germinating (I think that’s the word I want to use).  I have written about 500 words and have planned out the core idea behind the book, and I believe based on my research it is a rather unique combination of sports and business.  As we go along, I’ll publish a few paragraphs to share with you, dear reader, and get you excited.

Long-time readers may remember this site began because of a book project around Serie A and the history of the league.  That manuscript is still here, and probably 1/3rd of the way done, but the specific historical topic is not as timely right this moment.  My hope is that in the next few years Serie A will change in a way that the book’s focus will become more relevant, and thus the topic will be in demand.  Until then, this new book topic – which is more timeless – will be a great read for a number of audiences.

Until next time, if you haven’t subscribed to the site, do so.  And tell a friend to do so as well.
