College Football Can Be Deadly Business

One of the driving ideas behind my site is simply that weekend golfers have a life outside of golf. We golf bloggers have lives outside golf as well, and here's a good example.

Vince over at The One-Eyed Golfer forwarded me the following message from Jay Busbee of Devil Ball Golf:
Wanted to give you the heads-up that I'm working on a new, off-hours project these days -- a serial novel that I'm rolling out over the course of the fall. It's a murder mystery, set in the world of college football, and I'll be posting new chapters every week. Check it out, and if you're so inclined, spread the word:

Being a writer myself, I know how hard it is to get publicity unless your name is Stephen King, Nora Roberts, or John Grisham. So, although I know getting on my site isn't the same as making the New York Times Bestseller List, I want to do my part to help. I'm adding Jay's book to "My Other Blog List" in the side column; just look under "ONLINE NOVEL." Take a moment to pop over and check it out.

Good luck, Jay!

(And, just as an aside, while I don't really care for romance novels, Nora Roberts also writes murder mysteries as J.D. Robb. She wrote the Robb novels for a long time without divulging who she was, perhaps fearing she might alienate her regular readers... or that possible Robb readers would write them off as just more romances. Her site calls the books "futuristic thrillers," but I think a more accurate label would be "erotic scifi police procedurals." At any rate, if you like murder mysteries—like Jay's—and you're looking for something new to read, you might try one of the Robb novels as well. They're pretty cool.)
