Meet the Author Weekend is April 28-29 at Barnes & Noble Poughkeepsie in New York, and I will be among the authors on hand for discussion and book signing starting at 10 a.m. ET on that Sunday, April 29. Please come out and join us to hear from some great writers, and be ready to talk some baseball!
Barnes & Noble Sarasota, first stop of the day on Day 2 of the #DiamondsFromTheDugout 2018 Spring Training tour. Thanks to Dominique and the awesome team for your hospitality! Hopefully the man who came in and asked for "Moneyball" for his book club got the hint with the two DFTD signed copies sitting next to him on the Customer Services counter! Get a signed book here, watch the Orioles at nearby Ed Smith Stadium while you read Brooks Robinson's Foreword and Cal Ripken's story, and relax on No. 1 ranked Siesta Key Beach!
Thanks to Nick and Posman Books for a second signing at their Chelsea Market location in New York City! These go fast at this busy place under the Highline, and it also happens to be the building where my MLB.com team has been headquartered for nearly two decades! If you come by to grab a signed copy here, please give me a shout at twitter.com/marathoner beforehand so I can come down and say hi and pose for a pic! - Mark
66th store signing: The largest bookstore in the world now has signed copies of #DiamondsFromTheDugout right inside the front door, next to books by Elin Hilderbrand and Al Gore. Thanks so much to the magnificent team at Barnes & Noble Union Square for our second signing there, following the sales through a busy holiday season. Yankees and Mets fans, come and get your copy of the No. 1 bestselling baseball book! Follow marknewmanauthor on Instagram to see the whole book tour.
Entering a new U.S. state for the first time in about 30 years, I was delighted to roll across the New Hampshire state line into Barnes & Noble Salem and then sign #DiamondsFromTheDugout copies while on the #BarnesandNobleStormingTour across New England. Red Sox fans, get your Diamonds! Follow marknewmanauthor on Instagram to see the whole book tour!
Barnes & Noble Prudential Center on Boylston is an iconic bookselling venue near the Boston Marathon finish line, and on Sunday morning I signed a batch of #DiamondsFromTheDugout copies while on the #BarnesandNobleStormingTour across New England. Thanks to the great team there for prominently placing the signed copies in the center of the store on a signed editions display! Red Sox fans, get your Diamonds!

Thanks to Nick and the great team at Posman Books NYC, in the same Chelsea Market building where I have worked for the past 13 years for MLB.com! It was amazing to take the elevator downstairs and see my book between those of Trevor Noah and Keith Olbermann in New Releases. Signed copies are now available -- especially to my co-workers!

Thanks to everyone who braved record cold (!) and attended the DIAMONDS FROM THE DUGOUT signing event at the Barnes & Noble at Palisades Center mall in West Nyack, NY. We raised funds for the Clarkstown Family Resource Center, giving students in need a hand to stay on equal footing in the massive Clarkstown Central School District. Thanks also to everyone who made the event possible. Many signed copies are available there!
The #DiamondsFromTheDugout #BarnesandNobleStormingTour headed from Livingston to Barnes & Noble Springfield, where copies were signed and sold at the Customer Service counter. Carol was super helpful and shortlisted more books from the warehouse while I signed, so you should be able to find a copy and maybe a signed one here!
Meeting readers and talking baseball is the best part about the #DiamondsFromTheDugout #BarnesandNobleStormingTour, and Barnes & Noble Livingston in New Jersey was a great case in point! I signed this BN store's stock of my book, and as I was signing I met a Father-Son combo of Yankee fans who proceeded to buy up all the copies, with autograph stickers on the front. It was great to talk baseball right there for 15 minutes, before moving on to the Springfield location. Have no fear, the Livingston store is ordering more from the warehouse.
Signed copies at the Barnes & Noble Danbury Square store in Connecticut, and thanks to Dan and the awesome team there for displaying it right next to Barack Obama's coffee table book at the main Customer Service counter. This stop on the #BarnesandNobleStormingTour was a makeup for the tour's stop a few weeks earlier when I hit nine BN stores in Connecticut on the same Saturday -- inventing the #BarnesandNobleStormingTour in the process. That day, Danbury was going to be the finale but even with late holiday store hours I couldn't quite make it to the store in time before closing. So now we're good!
