Why choose Sublime Book Review?

Finding the right reviews for the right budget can be hard for an Indie or self-published author. And in many cases, you unknowingly pay for a review that is 100% guaranteed positive. While it’s nice for a reviewer to tell you your book is “the greatest book ever written,” this doesn’t necessarily help you, the author, and it certainly doesn’t help the industry leaders (librarians, booksellers, media professionals) make calculated decisions about purchasing your book or requesting your title for their library.

In Elysian Fields follows the story of baseball veteran Luke Allen, and his last attempt at a championship. Luke Allen is a sure thing, first ballot hall of famer, with only a championship missing from his career. He battles his own mortality, a rival team, a nemesis in the form of a journalist, and a secret admirer that sends him notes at all home games. Tom Evans uses Luke to give you an inside look at a superstar’s mindset throughout a grueling baseball season. Luke is more of a loner, a humble narcissist if you will, that rarely depends on the company of others. But he finds himself vulnerable to a woman he has never even met. It’s a very interesting point of view that I believe audiences will relate to. I would definitely recommend this for readers that happen to be as big of baseball fans as I am. History buffs will enjoy the references that Evans uses to liven up the story. As a lifelong fan who has known a few minor leaguers trying to make it to the show, I would have loved a little more ball-player-banter on the road trips and in the clubhouse that is just unbeatable. It’s more PG-Rated than I hoped it would be, but overall, a well-written novel for all ages.

Sublime Line:In Elysian Fields is just a reminder that baseball and love, when done properly, are like soothing poetry.”
