I have received several emails in the past couple weeks asking about my new book, “A Century of Fridays,” which covers high school football in Wyoming from the first game in 1894 to the 2011 state championships last November.

The book, unfortunately, will not be available in time for Christmas. You CAN still give the book for Christmas by having your gift receiver proceed to this page; then, when the book comes out, you can hook them up for realsies.

The book is in the final stages of production and should be available in roughly 6-8 weeks. I’m doing everything I can to keep the price as low as possible. Mostly, that means chopping my share of the profits down to basically nothing. I’m trying to keep the actual price of the book as close to the cost of the production as I can.

I have several excuses as to why the book was not ready before now, but they’re all excuses. The bottom line is that the book is still coming out, just about a month or two later than I would have hoped, and if your friends are really good friends they’ll understand why you’re giving them a web page for Christmas and not a book.

    In this world anything that is “Great” is worth waiting for. I’m looking forward to reading your book as I’m really interested in the history of high school football in our great state and I know you will have it well covered.
