I did some cleanup tonight that really marks the end of writing Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans. Matt Heidenry, my editor, sent me back a PDF of the book after he inserted the corrections I made in the proofs.
I went over them to make sure everything was done right. There were only a few changes. After sending Matt an e-mail detailing what needed to be done, I’m really, really finished.
For now, it’s time to put all my energies into selling this book. See you at the release party, from 2-5 p.m. Sept. 16 at the Feasting Fox, 4200 S. Grand in the city.
