    Really enjoyed “Deadball”. I met you at the Ivy book signing. Do you have any other book signings planned? I have a few friends that would love an autographed copy.

      Hello Constance.

      I am glad to hear you enjoyed Deadball and truly appreciate your letting me know. In the next couple days I should have posted on my website additional book signings at the Smithsonian’s Museum of American History. If that is not convenient to pick up some copies of the book, I am certain I could send copies to you through the mail. You can reach me directly through my email at huntingtonparkdbs@gmail.com. Thanks again. DBS
