I know, I know, I know….

You guys are telling me — with increasing (but loving) impatience — that you’re ready for another book. And I am so sorry that I’ve been sidelined more than once in the past year. I could say something precious and lofty like, “It’s all part of the artistic process,” but since it’s just us I will say what I’m really thinking which is, “Shit happens.”

So, in the way of an injured wildebeest throwing a raw steak at the pride as it closes in on her, I offer you this short story, BODY ENGLISH for your consumption. It combines two of my favorite things: love and baseball. It will only keep you busy for a lunch break or so, but I hope you enjoy it. Meanwhile, I am going to dart into the brush and keep writing frantically on the next book.

And, yes, you do have to sign up for my email list to get the story; but with the exception of book releases and other events, I promise that I don’t email very often. Our inboxes are all cluttered enough, so I work hard not to be a nuisance. But you WILL be the first to know when the next book is released!

If you are already a member of my email list, you should have received a link to the PDF version of the story in your inbox yesterday. If you prefer the Kindle version, however, please feel free to re-subscribe to the list and it will be sent to you automagically. This will not cause you to receive duplicate emails, because the mail chimp and I sort that out on our end.

If you like the story, please be kind enough to share it by pasting this link in your status or tweet:  And don’t forget to stop by Facebook and let me know what you think!
