BOB’S BLOG

HOME / BOB’S BLOG

Bob Wilber grew up aspiring to follow in his father’s baseball footsteps, and while he was able to secure a full college scholarship and later spend parts of six years in professional ball, as a player, coach, and scout, his mother’s writing, communications, and public relations skills were what eventually defined his career. After a successful and adventurous sports-marketing trek through the sports-apparel business, agency work, and professional indoor soccer, he saw his first drag race as he closed in on his 40th birthday. Little did he know that he’d go on to spend 20 consecutive years as a team manager and PR representative for Del Worsham and then Tim Wilkerson, two of the most popular Funny Car drivers on the NHRA tour. At the conclusion of the 2015 season, Bob ended his drag racing run in order to take on an important personal assignment. Over the course of 2016 he wrote his autobiography, entitled “Bats, Balls, & Burnouts.” It was released in late May, 2017 and is available on Amazon.com and other major online book retailers, in both printed and digital formats. For the last year, Bob has been writing a new book, in the “historical fiction” genre. It’s entitled “How Far?” and was published on January 22, 2022. It is available on Amazon.com. Bob’s website was launched on February 10, 2022. Visit Bob’s Site to learn more about his life and his books.

The Ties That Bind…

June 23rd, 2022

Today’s blog installment may just meander a bit. Wait…  Really? That would be a first! The reason for said meandering is a chain of thoughts that have passed through my now 66-year old brain the last few days. And they all began with this charming photo. “What a nice couple,” you say. Yes they are. […]

Were We Brave Back Then? Or Just Clueless?

June 17th, 2022

I’m sorry for being negligent, once again, in my blog production but the truth of this particular matter has to do with a lot of various external sources. I had an important “follow-up” MRI this week, to check on my progress after the illness and hospital stay that marred my summer a year ago, right […]

Exposure, Word-Of-Mouth, Reviews, and Stars

June 2nd, 2022

Here we are, now beginning our fifth month on the market with my newest literary effort How Far? on Amazon and a few other platforms. “So how’s it gone, Bob?” you ask. If you didn’t ask, I just asked for you otherwise I’d have no subject matter for this blog. All in all, it’s going […]

A Grand Return and A Gala Event

May 19th, 2022

Hey…  LOOK AT ME!!!  A new blog for the second consecutive week and it’s actually on Thursday, for cryin’ out loud. That’s an all-time record. At least for consecutive Thursdays in May, of 2022, but let’s not be picky. Lots to write about in this one, although probably not quite as much as last week’s […]
