It’s not just talent on the basketball court

If you look at the NCAA tournament start, you know that nothing is ever a given. As I said in a previous blog, any dog, any day. That’s how I see my opponents on the tennis court, my boys’ opponents on the baseball field, and my future in your local bookstore. It’s not always talent that wins out – it’s guts, risk-taking, and the desire not to give in or up that makes sports so unpredictable and exciting. Publishing a book is only slightly different – most writers long for the stadium applause; most writers enter the book club meeting or presentation with butterflies; most writer hope that their book is both unpredictable and exciting. We don’t want to disappoint our fans. Neither do the men on the court.
