Saved from captivity by their friend, Skip, the twins make their way into the small town of Eugene, Mississippi. Along the way, they pick up their colorful cast of friends for what they expected to be a friendly little game of baseball.
Happy 13th Birthday Jimmy & Billy McGee. Or is it? Stuck at home on account of Mama & Daddy’s stupid house rules, these Mississippi-born twins are going stir-crazy and driving their Mama to her last nerve.
Ann McIndoo is an Author’s Coach who was referred to me by a friend & colleague of mine. Ann suggested that I create a Summary Resume for my book Extra Innings. I’ve completed the first half and am now working on the second half which is a Table of Contents using 2-3 powerful impact sentences to summarize each chapter. Holy Cow! Summarizing each chapter is much more challenging than what I had initially perceived. Wish me luck world!

In the collection of conversations I’ve had around the topic of character & setting details in a literary work, I have heard an overwhelming response of folks in favor of authors who provide vast amounts of detail when describing a character’s physical description. And the same goes for a setting if its a key location (such as the town or street where a character lives, a room where important pieces of the story take place, etc). For example, chapters 1 -3 of The Diamond Thieves well-depicts the main characters physical description and personalities. This is especially important since they are identical twins yet extremely different personality-wise. I have only heard of readers preferring that a character be more left up to that reader’s imagination for minor more utility role characters & places in a book. The beginning chapters also provide an abundance of visual imagery to describe the small, fictional, Southern town of Eugene, Mississippi.
