The holidays will be here soon. And I have some extra books in my basement. Time for a sale!
While they last, you can visit my online store and order signed copies of Chasing the Runner’s High and Overthinking the Marathon for only $8.99 each (regular price $12.99). And if you buy both books, you can save even more – get both for only $15.99.
While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up a copy of my new book, Idle Feet Do the Devil’s Work, or the One Fund benefit anthology, The 27th Mile.
If you want the books inscribed for a specific person, be sure to email me after you place your order with the appropriate information.
Or you can get any of my books from the usual places (Amazon, etc…) in either paper or ebook form, if that’s more in line with your desires.
Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Bodhi Day, Festivus, National Pastry Day, or Hogswatch, one (or more) of my books makes the perfect gift for the runners in your life. Especially when they’re on sale (I won’t tell if you won’t).

As writer/editor/publisher/marketer/chief bottle-washer/union shop steward for my tiny little literary empire, I am pleased to announce my new book, Idle Feet Do the Devil’s Work!
It’s due to be released November 5th, but if you order before November, you’ll get a Special Pre-release Price!
My marketing people (see above) have this to say about the book:
Idle Feet Do the Devil’s Work is an entertaining mix of facts, fiction, and opinions, all written with Ray’s unique blend of curmudgeonly candor and humor.
Ray takes a wide-ranging look at why so many people risk sore knees and smelly shoes in order to cross one more finish line, maybe, if they’re lucky, just a little faster than they ever have before.
Inside these pages, Ray covers a dizzying array of topics, including his experience guiding a blind runner at the Boston Marathon in 2013, the triumphant return to Hopkinton in 2014 after the bombing, the story of a runner who sells his ‘sole’ to the devil, marathon pacing tips and the one marathon training secret you won’t get anywhere else, what your race trophies are talking about when you’re not listening, and much more.
See why Runner’s World called Ray a “New England running fixture” and why Mrs. Marble (Ray’s kindergarten teacher) said Ray “enjoys explaining his ideas at great length.”
