    Dear Ricky and John,
    Hello! My name is Andy Clapp and I am a Christian author and a youth pastor. My first book was recently released and I would love the opportunity to be interviewed on your blog. The name of the book is “Under the Lights: Living Their Faith with Everyone Watching”. The book is a guide to becoming a better follower of Christ and in this book, I interviewed many professional baseball players to get their insights on each issue discussed in the book. The book addresses various aspects of the life of a Christian man and addresses many of the struggles that men deal with today including: Pride, Lack of Sacrifice, Accountability, Dealing with Failure, Temptation, Remembering the basics of Faith, etc. The book also has a 31-devotional to keep men focused on becoming a better follower of Christ for an entire month upon completion of the book. The goal is to get Christians to be better models of faith in today’s world as they realize that so many people are watching their every move, looking to see if they fall. The book is being published by Marshall Trumann Publishers.
    With the World Series just concluded, this is the perfect opportunity to talk about a current event while adding a spiritual tone to the conversation. I would love the opportunity to be interviewed on your blog and discuss my book. If you would like to schedule a time for an interview, you can email me at andywayneclapp@aol.com or call me at (336) 684-8512. Below, I included a list of the chapters in the book as well as the players interviewed in the book. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.
