So we wrote a book … kind of

Today is the official publication date of This Is Indiana, a paper back book produced by the Herald-Times in conjunction with Indiana University Press. Our editor Bob Zaltsberg wrote about it in today’s paper.

There isn’t necessarily new material in terms of copy. It’s a collection of my most of my game stories and several features throughout the year, combined with flat-out phenomenal photography from the great Chris Howell, who was on the road for every single game this year. If you’ve been a loyal Herald-Times reader, there won’t be anything you haven’t read, but there are a lot of photographs you haven’t seen, and those do a lot to bring this season to life. IU Press also did an exceptional job of putting it together, and for that reason it works as a pretty cool keepsake item.

The pertinent ordering information as pointed out by Mr. Zaltsberg in today’s column, are as follows.

Books will be available at the front desk of The Herald-Times, 1900 S. Walnut St. You can also order the book online at (offering a 30% discount this week only with code IUBB30), or at several local retailers, including the IU Bookstore, as well as online retailers such as and

The 128-page softback book sells for $20. Books will be available at the front desk of The Herald-Times or by phone from The Herald-Times at 800-422-0070.

There is a $5.99 shipping fee for sending books via U.S. Postal Service.

    I purchased the book (and two additional copies for gifts) yesterday from the “Indiana Shop” in the mall and, I can say, that it is well worth it. Definitely a cool collector’s item.
