Plethora of Players Continues — Caryl McAdoo character interview for “One and Done”

LAUNCH

On George Herman Walter Johnson / One and Done, released 7-8-15

Hi, This is Mary Findley, Fox News reporter coming to you live from the beautiful Globe Life Park, home of the Texas Rangers. And though he has only heretofore given live interviews to Samantha Davenport, a Fox colleague, the phenom has agreed to speak with me briefly today to talk about Caryl McAdoo’s new contemporary Red River Romance One and Done. We’re waiting for this afternoon’s game to start. Here he comes now! Mister Johnson! I so appreciate this opportunity to –”

Please, Mary, call me G.H. or I’ll think you’re talking to my grandfather.

My pleasure. So, G. H., what do you attribute your meteoric rise to such phenomenal success and fame?

To God be the glory. All of it. I ruined my shoulder at fourteen, and ended up at third base in high school then at Texas. Over a year ago, the Lord healed it. A real life miracle. Though some might not like me calling it that, sure is what it was.

I guess since it’s your arm, you have every right. I have to say that I’m so flattered to be the only reported other than Sammi Dan who you’ve spoken to. Would you share why you put it in your contract that you only have to accept live interviews with her?

SammiBallPark

You know, she came down to Mexico City when the Rangers were still undecided. Seemed like the thing to do, you know a way to get to get to know her better. She seemed like an intelligent, fun lady. Everyone can see she’s beautiful.

Really? Simple as that? Wanting to know her more personally. I never would have guessed, but from a female’s point of view, wow! She must have been really thrilled. So G.H., you’re facing the Diamond Backs today, World Series winners back in ’01. Do you feel good about getting the win for Texas? Are you worried any?

Oh, I’ve made it a habit not to worry, hate insulting God that way. No, when you’re trusting Him, there’s just no need for it. I’m fine with facing Arizona, feel ready. They have a good team, but we’ve been right on point, and I’m expecting a victory!

The park is sold out again. After that first shutout of yours, it has been every game. What can you tell us about how that makes you feel?

Texas fans are the best in the World. This winning streak we’ve been on is definitely drawing them in, and that feels great, of course. The team is rocking, and every Ranger is playing their best. Put all that together, and you pack the ballpark. I love playing to a full house.

I don’t mean to pry, but it’s been reported that your grandfather named you after the Babe and his great uncle, arguably the best pitcher of all time, and here you are pitching like crazy, with even some pop in your bat. How about some insight before you go.

It’s true, my grandfather named me—that’s a long story I won’t get into—but he didn’t know if I’d be a slugger or a hurler, so he said he was only trying to cover all the bases. There was only one Babe Ruth, so I don’t like taking anything away from him, and my great-great-great-great Uncle Walter does still hold a few records, but you can’t forget the Rangers’ Nolan Ryan. The man’s a legend. I guess I could’ve been George or Walter, but when PawPaw asked—I think I was seven—I chose G.H. Thought it sounded grown-up or something.

Well, G.H., it was great talking to you this afternoon and we’re all cheering for you to keep your shutout sting going. Thank you so much.

You’re welcome, Mary. Thank you. Blessings!

And there you have it folks! The man of the day. You can read more about him in Caryl McAdoo’s brand new release (last week!) One and Done, book three in her Red River Romance series.

GIVEAWAY! Caryl has graciously offered a free digital copy from Amazon Kindle to one blessed commenter, so do not leave without telling her how much you’d enjoy reading ONE AND DONE!

Caryl and the gang loving the game

About the novel:
God can pull a fish out of water and make that thang smell like a rose. ONE AND DONE is an unlikely love story born of prophesy, nurtured in full view of the probing public eye, and seemingly doomed at its inception.
In this love story—sure to be enjoyed by men and women—with its Texas Ranger baseball backdrop and strong pitcher/batter hero, Samantha Danielle, cutest weather girl on Dallas TV, only dreams of sports reporting. Then her station sends her to scoop an interview with a pitcher Rangers’ management is hot after. George Herman Walter Johnson is undeniably a phenomenon on the mound, playing for a Mexican team. His charm and debonair bowls her over, but turns out, he’s such a goody two-shoes, she can’t even get him to first base.
Conflict flies as the wealthy ex-poker player, oldest Ranger rookie ever lays everything on the line in his quest to win her heart. She remains wary of his resistance. Will her bunt snag the man of her dreams…or his homerun drive her home?
ONE AND DONE is an unlikely love story born of prophesy, grown in full view of the probing public eye, and seemingly doomed because of the bride-to-be’s heathen condition. The pitcher follows Christ though, but can his faith that she is God’s woman for him carry them through to their happily ever after?
Reviews:
Faster than a major league outfielder pulling down a popup fly ball, Caryl McAdoo’s romance is guaranteed to snag baseball lovers and romance readers alike. This Christian story is written with wit, verve and Caryl McAdoo’s usual flare for dialect and spicy dialogue. Be warned. Those readers searching for a saccharine, man-meets-woman story will soon discover this is no sanitized romantic fairy tale.
From the beginning, the reader will identify with real people who live clearly in the mind, so much so, that a person can almost smell locker room sweat or the mouthwatering scent of spicy Mexican food. Identification with the hero and heroine is nearly immediate. With so much to rave about, this review cannot begin to cover all the delightful surprises, so the reader simply must buy “One and Done” to see for themselves.
–Cassandra Wessel, a Pennsylvania reader

Caryl has done it again. Another wonderful story with characters and a story line that had me hooked from the first pages. The author also gives a fun glimpse into the world of professional baseball and the players. It was enjoyable reading about G. H., a ball player, and Sammi, a TV reporter, and following their ups and downs in their spiritual journeys as they discover their love for each other. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and it is another one”” from this author that I definitely recommend.”
–Ann Ellis, a Texas Reader

Bio: Caryl McAdoo currently writes three series: the historical Christian ‘Texas Romance’; a contemporary ‘Red River Romance’; and The Generations, her Biblical fiction. The novelist loves singing new songs the Lord gives her, and she paints. In 2008, she and her high school sweetheart-husband Ron moved from the DFW area—home for fifty-five years—to the woods of Red River County. Caryl counts four children and fourteen grandsugars life’s biggest blessings believing all good things come from God. Praying her story gives God glory, she hopes each one will also minister His love, mercy, and grace to its readers. Caryl and Ron live in Clarksville, the county seat, in the far northeast corner of the Lone Star State.
