Jeter Prepares to Turn a Page and Publish Many Others

Jon Anderson: Going for the 2

Derek Jeter, nearing the final act of a storied athletic career, is ready to talk about his life after baseball. He wants to be a book publisher.

On Thursday, Jeter, the Yankees’ shortstop and captain, announced that he would start a publishing imprint, Jeter Publishing, a partnership with Simon & Schuster…

The publishing imprint will include nonfiction books for adults, like biographies and titles on business and lifestyle; children’s picture books; middle-grade fiction; and books for children who are learning to read…

Jeter Publishing will work with Wicked Cow Entertainment, a firm that manages strategy for sports and entertainment brands and will be looking for “brand extensions” for books.

“You never know where this may go,” Jeter said. “You look at all the opportunities that come with content in general; I mean, there might be a compelling story that someone has that turns into a film or a TV show.”...

Jon Anderson, the president of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, said that Jeter’s parents, Dorothy and Charles, were planning to meet with the editorial staff at Simon & Schuster to provide “background on young Derek Jeter.” Jeter’s charitable organization, the Turn 2 Foundation, will be involved with the children’s books stamped with the Jeter name.

One of the first books planned, Anderson said, is a “Derek Jeter guide to baseball” for young readers. The plan includes updating the book each year.

OTOH The Unexpurgated Jeter Diaries would likely outsell all the Bill James, Roger Angell and Rob Neyer books put together. You know that it would.

The first publishing must be called Fist Pump, right?

Yes. I was going to post something similar.

This isn't going to make some Primates happy because Derek is much better going to the right than the left.

The imprint will also publish a book for woman called What Are Your Hopes? What Are Your Dreams?

The idea that the geniuses on this site know more about publishing than Derek Jeter is both humorous and...ah...something or other.

If he needs a book on the United States and the Cuban Revolutions on the 19th century, I've been trying to publish it for years.

The idea that the geniuses on this site know more about the Cuban Revolutions of the 19th century than Derek Jeter is both humorous and preposterous.

A rerelease of "Immobility" and the end of days by Brian Evenson?
