    in Books

    In a world gone mad, is God still in control? In this sequel to Solitary Man, Doyle wants to know what’s on the other side of the fence. Determined to discover the truth, Doyle sets out on what he believes is a lonely quest, only to find out along the way that God is still at work, and there are still people who believe in Him. While Doyle struggles with his new faith in Christ, he has his eyes opened to the darkness of this world and learns to set his sights on heavenly things while fighting the evils that threaten the people and world that he loves. And along the way, Doyle might finally solve the conflict in his soul and find that he does need others after all.

    ABOUT THE BOOK - PROVENANCE - WINNER OF MADVILLE'S BLUE MOON NOVEL COMPETITION Still grieving his wife's early death, DJ has spent the last three years-and the money from her insurance policy-collecting guitars, composing music, and continuing to shop the Brooklyn stoop sales and flea markets they'd always enjoyed. When his building is sold, he takes refuge in his younger sister's half-finished basement, imagining a comfortable and solitary retreat in Hurley, the small Hudson Valley town where they grew up. Instead, he finds himself caught up in her troubling divorce, drafted as caregiver for his 11-year-old niece, and unable to face or afford a storage unit crammed with hundreds of vinyl records and every other scrap of his former life. DJ gifts his niece a marbled glass egg, a porkpie hat, and one of his prized guitars. But what's asked of him, on his return to Hurley is not to give the perfect object-it's to give of himself.

    Part 1: Close Up Radio Welcomes Back Best Selling Author Tom Glenn

    in Books

    Columbia MD – Tom Glenn is a Vietnam vet who has had multiple careers including intelligence operative, musician, linguist in seven languages, cryptologist, caregiver for the dying, and leadership coach. He has a BA in Music, a master’s in government, and a doctorate in Public Administration. A sought-after public speaker, he is the author of a series of novels and short story collections: Friendly Casualties, Last of the Annamese, The Trion Syndrome, No-Accounts, Secretocracy, and Coming to Terms.
    “It’s unbelievable how the U.S. essentially and unapologetically glorifies combat. I stopped reading books on war because they never truly captured the savagery, carnage, and the unimaginable devastation that surrounded us on the battlefield. How we had to witness our buddies horrifically killed when their mutilated body parts landed all over us. The helplessness, suffering, and anguish of combat is indescribable.” 
    With such gut wrenching accounts, how does it not evoke our sense of humanity? Yet we continually disengage and desensitize ourselves and enjoy watching bloodshed depicted in movies which, for the most part, are purely made for entertainment and profit.
    Tom emphasizes how today the similarities of the atrocities in Ukraine remind Tom once again the senselessness and depravity of putting young soldiers and civilians through the horror of battle.
    Tom says the United States must restore its international leadership role. “It is crucial that we lead the world toward universal democracy and freedom.”

    "Deadball Trailblazers" Author Ronald Waldo, on the Sunbury Press Books Show!

    in Books

    Baseball's "Deadball Era" lasted from 1900 to 1919, so noted as Major League Baseball used a softer ball. In addition, the teams often played in stadiums with larger field surfaces, so games were won by timely hitting, bunting and strategy. Home runs were a rarity. 
    During that period, a number of individual, single-season records were established, that are unlikely to be broken as the game has evolved. Ronald Waldo, author of eight books on baseball history, especially of the early 20th Century, highlights some of these in his new book for Sunbury Press, "Deadball Trailblazers: Single-Season Records of the Modern Era."
    Many of these names will be known to baseball fans, if at least in passing: Napolean Lajoie's standout 1901 season, "Happy Jack" Chesbro's 41 wins, Ty Cobb's (then) record-breaking 96 stolen bases, and John "Chief" Wilson's 36 triples.
    The tales and personalities are brought back to life by Waldo, which include Rube Waddell's brilliant 1904 season, along with instances of his erratic behavior. Then there were exercises in futility: Jack Nabors' 19 consecutive losses for a terrible Philadelphia A's team in 1916, and perhaps the most perplexing, John Gochnaur's 1903 record of 98 errors.
    Ronald Waldo joins Lawrence Knorr on today's Sunbury Press Books Show to tell some of these stories, and look back at a different time in baseball, and American History. His other works include, "The 1902 Pittsburgh Pirates: Tragedy and Triumph," "The Battling Bucs of 1925," and biographies of old-time players Fred Clarke and Kiki Cuyler. Each of Waldo's preceding books on the Deadball Era has receive nominations for the Larry Ritter Book Award. He lives in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
