Aug. 23, 2011 - PRLog -- Ventura and Camarillo, CA. – On Saturday, September 10, 2011, Kirk Marty (aka Kirk Grossman) will sign copies of his baseball fantasy novel The Longest Walk at Bank of Book Bookstore, 748 E.

The Longest Walk realizes every baseball fan’s ultimate fantasy: seeing the greatest players of all time play when it really counts. Boozy minor league hitting instructor, Don Ogilvie, bargains to trade his life for that of his best friend, Roberto, a terminally ill 7-year-old. But first the dodgy coach must win an other-World(ly) Series by managing a team of ‘dead’ Hall of Famers against Death’s powerful squad.

The book’s plot is based in part on the famous story of Babe Ruth hitting a home run to help an injured child. The Longest Walk and Kirk Marty are associated with Childhood Leukemia Foundation ( and Kirk is donating 10% of net book sales to this nationally recognized non-profit charity.

About the Author: Kirk Marty is the pen name of Kirk Grossman, an attorney and dedicated Dodger fan from Ventura, California. “The way I see it, I’ve been a professional writer for over 35 years. As a practicing attorney, I’ve cranked out literally hundreds of thousands of pages of mumbo jumbo. Legal writing provides great instruction on the wrong way to create fiction, although some attorneys often confuse the two. Still, it is the type of writing that requires great precision and focus, qualities needed for good fiction as well.” He has started his next novel.
