    The Latest Book From Giants Author Dan Fost

    Buy it on Amazon!

    Buy it from an independent bookstore!

    Giants boost the book!

    OK, time for some shameless self-promotion. The American Bookseller Association Web site reports:

    With the Major League Baseball post-season now underway, we present the Indie October Baseball Bestseller List, based on sales in independent bookstores nationwide for the eight-week period ending October 10, 2010.

    and Giants Past and Present is no. 19!

    I know a fair amount of the credit for that success goes first to the Giants, who are keeping fans interested in all aspects of their amazing history with their phenomenal run through the post-season.

    I also have to thank the folks at my publisher, MVP Books, who have been incredibly supportive, as well as my publicists — Diana Parker at Spoken Media early in the season, and more recently Susan MacTavish Best and Beth Cook at Best Public Relations.

    Since that memorable Oct. 3 game, when the Giants beat the Padres and catapulted into the playoffs, I’ve done at least 10 radio interviews. Interest in the Giants is soaring around the country! Here’s all the places I’ve been talking Giants baseball:

    Tuesday Oct. 5:

    FOX Sports New Mexico, AM1340, with Steve Borstein

    ESPN Radio Hawaii, KHLO AM 850 Hilo, KKON AM 790 Kona, , with Josh Pacheco

    Friday, Oct. 8
    Phoenix, Ariz., KQNA 1130 AM/99.9 FM “Let’s Talk Sports,” with Sanford Cohen, Mike Austin and “The Doctor” Ron Corak.
    I am often asked my Amazon ranking, but I rarely check it – it’s not a particularly reliable barometer for regional books like mine. But it is #40 in baseball essays, whatever that’s worth.
