Bases Loaded by Sean Michael
Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to have Sean Michael here today revealing his cover for his re-release of Bases Loaded. Welcome, Sean.
Thank you to Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words for hosting the cover reveal for Bases Loaded.
As always, when I have a re-release of an older book, I welcome getting another set of edits on the book, but most of all I appreciate getting a new cover. And I’m very happy with this new cover for the book.
This book was a part of all the ‘going for the gold’ sports books that I wrote a bunch of years back, but this one was different from the others. There was no coach, instead the love story is between a baseball player and his lover and it happens off-season. They have to survive the things life throws at them.
The irony of having this be off-season is that I am a huge baseball fan from back when I was in a teenager, avidly following the Montreal Expos, keeping track of stats, listening on the radio to the games that weren’t televised, keeping a scrapbook of all the clippings from the newspaper. And with all that knowledge locked in my head, so I wouldn’t need to research that aspect of the book, I basically didn’t need it.
Ah well, I still love baseball, though without a home team here in Ottawa, I don’t follow it like I used to.
Hopefully you like the new cover for Bases Loaded as much as I do and I hope you decide to give the book a try and that you think it’s a homerun!

Can they survive the off-season and keep from striking out?
Baseball player Brett must get rehabilitation for his shoulder if he wants another season in the Major League. He and his partner, Benj, take off to the boonies to stay with physical therapist Ralph, a tough-talking, routine-setting guy, and Jean, Ralph’s Cajun lover, who cooks as well as he loves.
Brett and Ralph butt heads from the beginning. Ralph wants Brett to be more in touch with his feelings; Brett wants Ralph to give him his therapy and leave him alone. Benj and Jean get along far better, with Jean showing Benj around the kitchen and reassuring him when things with Brett get strained.
Before Ralph can even begin to work on Brett’s shoulder, though, Brett faces an even more difficult physical challenge, one that does more than threaten his career. He and Benj have to work through some tough issues, making decisions that will affect the rest of their lives together. Their gradual friendship with Ralph and Jean helps them through the bad times, but even that might not be enough to pull them through.
