I've got exciting news and an exciting contest!
As many of you know, I've spent a lot of time traveling. I'm currently in South America teaching English, having spent time in Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands and soon Peru. Last summer, I had the opportunity to play baseball in the Costa Rican Summer Leagues, traveling to Nicaragua and Panama along the way.
I wrote a comedic memoir about my experiences playing baseball abroad and am excited to announce that it's being published! My first book, Beyond Baseball, is available now for pre-order!
Here's where you guys come in!
Signed copies are going to be more expensive when the book is officially released (not because I think my signature is worth money, but because signed copies have to be shipped to me first which is costly), but for pre-orders here, I'm only asking $9.99.
More importantly, any board member who pre-orders the book will be entered to win either a Justin Morneau signed 8x10 (min. 15 pre-orders) or a Byron Buxton signed 16x20 (min. 50 pre-orders)!
You can get your copy and entry for the Morneau 8x10s and Buxton 16x20 at the following exclusive link:Message Board Exclusive-Buy here!
Feel free to peruse my website also for more information about the book:
-After 15 pre-orders, I'll give away an 8x10 signed by AL MVP Justin Morneau.
Act quick, as only the first 15 people to pre-order will be entered to win!
-After 30 pre-orders, I'll give away another 8x10 signed by AL MVP Justin Morneau!
Only the first 30 orders are eligible!
-After 50 pre-orders, I'll give away a 16x20 signed by #1 prospect Byron Buxton!
1 entry into the contest for every book ordered. Want more than one book? You'l get more than one entry!
Post here if you pre-order a copy. I'll verify that you did with Paypal and then I'l get you entered. The winners will be notified when the books ship (to prevent anyone from cancelling their order if they don't win).
Want an additional entry into the contest for the Buxton 16x20?
-Tweet a link to my website www.DanVenn.com with a message about the book with my Twitter name (@GalapagosDan) included and you'll get your name in the hat another time!
-Post my website and a message about the book on your Facebook and you'll get an additional entry. Take a screenshot of the post and send it to me and you're in!
I'm currently in South America teaching English. As soon as I'm back, the books will be signed up and put in the mail! Expected delivery is mid-February.
