Q: Is Dogwild & Board written in chronological order?
A: For the most part yes. The short stories are all in chronological order. Hence the reason why the first story Letters from Europe, which was written over ten years ago, lacks proper prose while the later stories are far more articulate. Some of the interviews and other stories may not be in chronological order, but that means little to the book.
Q: I'm noticing some spelling and grammatical errors. Is this intentional?
A: Yes. During the time Dogwild & Board was being put together, Saatsaz was reading Ernest Hemingway's For Whom The Bell Tolls and noticed numerous random little errors sprinkled throughout the book. In a lot of ways Saatsaz thought this added authenticity to the book and made him feel like he was there as the book was written. It's hard for a lot of people to understand this, so the eBook version of Dogwild & Board was published with less errors than the print version of the book.
Q: How did you get so many prestigious athletes and artists to contribute to the book?
A: Years and years of journalistic work. Saatsaz has been a journalist for close to 15 years and got to know some of the greatest athletes and artists in the world.
