I have done hours & hours of research for this book, but don't have the time to pull it all together. The subject was an infamous character in the period 1908-1920 who somehow escaped the history books. He was involved in pro baseball, horse racing, NY State politics, and Tammany Hall, so you need to have some experience writing about at least a few of these topics.

This book already has the interest of several major publishers. It is preferred you have experience submitting book queries and proposals to both academic and mainstream publishers. I will consider giving co-authoring cover credit to the right person.

The first task after you receive the materials I have is to work with me on an outline. We will then develop a schedule. This will be a part-time project of at least 6 months' duration.
