Here’s a review from Boston Globe‘s Bob Ryan:
Orel Hershiser IV…Kirk Gibson…the irrepressible Tom LaSorda…you know all about them. But Rick Dempsey, Mickey Hatcher, and Danny Heep—aka “The Stuntmen”—not so much. Now, thanks to K. P. Wee’s The 1988 Dodgers: Reliving the Championship Season, you will. This is the story of a very improbable and, yes, lovable bunch, the last LA Dodger squad to win a championship.
— Bob Ryan, Boston Globe, ESPN
The book is due to be released in August 2018, but all you sports fans out there can pre-order now! What a great gift for the baseball fan in your family!
It’s a new year, and I have a new writing project for 2018.
This one is going to be about a former Major League Baseball player who was a World Champion with the Florida Marlins and also had stints with Houston and Pittsburgh.
I’m starting this project this week, and it’s going to be very exciting!
Well, Christmas is a couple of weeks away, so have you bought a gift yet for the sports lover in your family?
If not, then why not one of these two books?
The hockey book is about the Boston-Montreal rivalry from 1988-1994, when the Bruins won five of the six series played between the two clubs, ending a streak of 18 consecutive playoff series losses to the Canadiens. Click to purchase this book here.
The baseball book is a biography of Tom Candiotti, the former knuckleball pitcher who pitched in the 1980s and 1990s. Candiotti won 151 major-league games and this book highlights his career. You can purchase this book here.
Get them for the sports lover in your family! 🙂
I’ve been away from this site for months – so it’s time for an update.
I’d been busy with teaching and writing, and therefore hadn’t had time to post anything here.
The project I’ve been working on is a book on the 1988 Los Angeles Dodgers. It’s a book about the Dodgers’ last World Championship team – and of course I’m rooting against them this year! So, my book will be more meaningful since it will still be the last ever Dodgers team to win a World Series.
Through the help of former Dodger general manager Fred Claire, I’ve been able to talk to 15 ex-players and coaches for this book. It’s been a terrific experience interviewing them to get their memories about that 1988 team.
Finding a publisher has proven to be tricky. Triumph Books showed interest but ultimately said no – they’d published a book on that team some time ago and it was too soon for a repeat. Another publisher looked at my submission and we had discussions, but they decided against taking on this project.
So, we’ll see what happens as I get in contact with others about this book.
I’m very excited to announce on here that I have a new book titled 150 Common Written & Spoken Errors Made by ESL Learners (with Suggested Corrections & Explanations), which will be extremely helpful for ESL learners as they try to master the English language.
Having taught and helped thousands of students over the years, I’ve come across the same types of errors that many students seem to make – and I’ve compiled a list of 150 of those common ones in this book. Before publishing it, of course, I used several of those “lessons” in my classes and my students thoroughly enjoyed them.
What I can say is that if you’re an ESL learner, this book will help you. If you go through the examples and explanations in each section – and learn them by heart – you will find that your English will gradually improve.
