L. J. Mainville Jr. never imagined he would ever write a book until someone noticed his blogs online and suggested he turn them into a book. His first published book with AuthorHouse is Stitch in Time, which is loosely based on his life, growing up in a small upstate New York town outside of Albany. L. J. states, “I was writing some stories in a blog for mom, who lives in California. They were all stories about growing up.” L. J. took his stories offline and used them as “memories” for the protagonist to go back in time in his own mind. Stitch in Time was written and published for his family to read; however, he has found more fans outside of his family. “My Facebook page is blowing up.” With a lot of requests for a sequel, L. J. knew it was time to add his Navy Days to the series. His 2nd book, Stitch in Time: A Sailor's Story is a look back on being a 19-year-old sailor in the United States Navy in 1983. The stories are hilariously raw and truthfully explicit. Whether you served in the Armed Forces or not, you will enjoy this story very much.
