On Opening Day We Are All in First Place

This is the new advertising tagline for Major League Baseball and the new 2017 season. I love it! It is so optimistic. The world is full of endless possibilities. On the first day of a new season every team has the opportunity to go to the World Series in October.

I love Opening Day/Night at baseball. We’ve gone 4 or 5 years now for our Oakland A’s. You look for the familiar faces of last year’s favorites, the newbies you don’t know yet, the changes at the stadium, the season-ticket holders you’ve grown to know year after year. The excitement is contagious. Anything is possible on opening day!!

I want to add that feeling to my books. To the whole world of publishing. Every release is a best-seller! It’s true. You don’t know which book will be THE ONE, so it could be this one, or the next one, or the one after that. Hold on to that feeling–this could be the book that people love, that they tell their friends about, that they can’t wait to get and read! Put every book you write out there with optimism and your hopes and dreams. Let it fly.

Make every Release Day, Opening Day!!
