In 2007, I wrote a couple of pieces for Tigers Corner, an annual guide to the Tigers put out by Maple Street Press. In 2008, I stepped up my involvement and became the managing editor. In 2009, I once again was a contibutor and managing editor of Tigers Corner until we got the rug pulled out from under us.
While there were some mistakes made on our end, the publisher decided, at the eleventh hour, to pull Tigers Corner out of their lineup. We had a lot of people put in a lot of work on this and the fact that the publication never saw the light of day comes with some sadness. And while we didn’t do everything right on our end, I’m convinced that if the publisher wanted to make the annual happen, he could have. Instead, he decided to just put it on the chopping block.
The good news is, our loss is your gain. The publication was pretty much written so we’ve set up a Tigers Corner website that will essentially be an online guide of what the book would have looked like. You won’t get as many pretty pictures, but you’ll get some top notch, high quality writing by a group of people I had the pleasure of working with. The longterm goal is to then put out a future publication where we have a little more control and this kind of thing doesn’t happen again. In the meantime, enjoy the content.
