After one year in print Twenty-four Years to Boston is now available as an eBook at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and Smashwords. Now you can read a different kind of running story on any device–Kindle, Nook, Smart Phone, Tablet or laptop.
While most running books are written by elite runners, coaches and trainers, my story is about a blue-collar runner who grew up working on the Philadelphia waterfront, raised four kids, and traveled widely on business. Regardless how hectic life got I always made time to run. Running grounded me and helped ease my stress. Approaching midlife I decided to run my second marathon, twenty years after my first, and then went on to do the best running of my life. I trained to qualify and ran the Boston Marathon when I hit fifty and never looked back.
Since I decided to pursue the writing life full-time in 2009 I feel like I’ve been serving a second apprenticeship (my first being a shipyard apprentice in the 1970s.) Every step I take is an adventure, which now includes the publishing business, most recently e-publishing. A few lessons I’ve learned include the importance of readings, book reviews and PR. Admittedly, I am not my best PR man.
So spread the word–tell family and friends, that weird uncle, the neighborhood bully, the neighborhood saint, the neighborhood drunk, the who damn neighborhood for that matter. And if anyone is so inclined, write a review in Amazon, iTunes, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords or Goodreads.
Thanks! And enjoy the read.
