Hey everyone! I am back! Thanks to the guys here at DartsMad for letting take a few months off to write a book. It’s been a great journey through this whole process and I cannot wait until the book is published next year and everyone will be able to read it.

Sleepy KramerIt was definitely a labor of love, as it was all about the game we all love….darts! Back in August, an Editorial Director from a publishing company happened across DartsMad and my articles. He then contacted me through my website and asked if I would be interested in writing a book about darts.

Of course I said “YES!” They felt that it would be well received and pretty much gave me Carte Blanche to do what I wanted to with it. The name was the only thing they chose and it will be called “The Ultimate Book of Darts” and it will be available from Skyhorse Publishing in the Spring of 2013.

So let’s get back to what is going on in the darting world. I usually cover what is going on in North America, but some of the latest news recently released has me wanting to share it with all the other people that may not be on Facebook. It involves the merging of the lines between the steel tip and soft-tip darts industry.

In a recent press release, the Professional Darts Corporation announced that it has entered into a partnership with DARTSLIVE International. As a result of this partnership, the winner of DARTSLIVE’s THE WORLD event would be given a qualifying place to compete at the PDC World Championships.

Sleepy KramerThis week, long time US player and citizen of Singapore, Paul Lim will once again compete at the PDC World Championship’s. Paul lived in the Unites States and represented the US in many international events. In 1990, he hit the first ever live nine dart game at Lakeside.

Paul is still an official citizen of Singapore and this will be the country he will represent at the PDC World’s. So tune in and cheer on “The Singapore Slinger” on Thursday 20 December.

There is also a DARTSLIVE booth set up at Ally Pally, so take a few minutes to stop by and check out the new machines that are changing the way the world is thinking about darts.

And with that, I would like to end the year with saying thank you to everyone for their un-ending support the last three months. I wish you all the Merriest of Christmases, the Happiest of New Year’s, or the Happiest of Holidays for whatever holiday you observe. See you all at the oche in 2013!

Thanks Anne, we look forward to reading The Ultimate Book of Darts in 2013 – DartsMad.com
