Letters from Two Basketball CoachesFacebooktwitterlinkedinmail

Launching a book isn’t as prolonged as writing one, but it’s a tension-filled time of making sure the cover and text are editorially and graphically sound, that plenty of electronic and physical copies are sent to readers and potential reviewers who may be interested, and that internet advertising options are chosen to disperse the new book in a universe already bristling with tens of millions of others, all seeking a little light.

It will be many weeks or months before I know if “Basketball and Football” has resonated with readers, but at least in recent days I’ve received letters from Mike Krzyzewski of Duke University, architect of five NCAA championships, and UCLA coach Steve Alford, national champ as a player at Indiana and long a leader of strong teams. Both thanked me for thinking of them and sending copies.

As a former gym rat who now full-court presses the computer, I’d like to say, “You’re welcome, and I appreciate the acknowledgment.”
