Online PR News – 19-April-2014 – South Orange, NJ – In a significant event for both baseball authors, readers and the publishing industry, Summer Game Books launches its first four titles this month, and an expected total of 17 titles releasing by this summer.

“We aim to be the go-to brand for baseball authors and readers,” said Publisher and industry veteran Walt Friedman, who has already secured a long and impressive list of some of the most renowned and emerging writers in the space, including Peter Golenbock, Pat Jordan, Ira Berkow, and Mike Shannon.

Summer Game Books will be offering both original works as well as first electronic editions of some of the most enduring and classic baseball books ever written. High-quality titles will represent a wide range of baseball genre, including fiction, biography, poetry, sabermetrics, history, and more.

From a publishing perspective, America’s pastime is unrivaled when it comes to its broad base of prolific writers and passionate readers. The sheer volume of baseball blogs is almost unchartable, and Amazon classifies 11,035 books in the category of baseball.

SGB Marketing Director Kent Weber added, “The trend in books is vertical, and we think our baseball-only focus delivers unique advantages for our author partners, baseball readers, and even large diversified publishers who want to partner with a leader in the baseball literary space.”
