Hey Backers! Wanted to give you a quick update on the "America At The Seams" project that you helped commission into existence! We are nearly passed all the legal hurdles and have 45/50 project participant waivers returned, and have received in baseballs from 31/50 states thus far. Plus...MLB has verbally agreed to allow references to their various team name trademarks in the book. By mid-April, about 50% of the giant USA map should be complete. Crazy! Follow along with #AmericaAtTheSeams on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for updates.
One cool thing happening this weekend is that I will be presenting the AATS project with Ethan Bryan (writer of the coffee table book scheduled for release this summer) at the 22nd Annual Baseball in Literature & American Culture Conference at Ottawa University in Kansas. For more info on the conference, click the following link: http://www.ottawa.edu/baseball-conference/agenda
You'll hear from me again this weekend with a final proof of the AATS Hardcover book cover concept along with details on how you can get in on an exclusive autographed 1st Edition PRESALE of the book in case you want extra copies.
PS - really cool update involving the National Baseball Hall of Fame coming soon!
