Last spring, a number of you generously offered to read a draft of my novel. Your feedback helped tremendously. I’ve done a lot of revising over the last few months, and I would love to get more feedback on what is working and what is not. If you’re interested in being a beta-reader, please let me know: lvanderkam at yahoo dot com.
Here’s a very brief summary of the novel: A small town high school basketball team wins the Pennsylvania state championship with an improbable last second three point shot. The story revisits the characters 10 and 20 years later as the ramifications of their youthful success play out over the course of their lives, forever linking them and the people around them to this little town that has its ways of not quite letting you go. Whether that’s a good or bad thing is, of course, one of the major questions of the story.
Thanks so much for considering it. I am incredibly grateful to have readers who are helping me make this book as good as it can be.
