It’s a step to the left of the typical Miami power move; firmly established as the Co-Owner of one of Little Havana’s first major revitalization projects, just what does one do when swollen with the success of owning and operating a world-class venue in the nightlife capital of the world? If you’re Zack Bush of Ball & Chain, there’s only one answer: Craft a work of children’s fiction declaiming in whimsical rhyme a father’s love. Available Mar. 1 from any major book retailer (including Books & Books), Made For Me documents, in intimate detail and gorgeous illustration, the unbreakable bond formed when a father first holds his newborn. “When you bring a child into the world, every aspect of that process puts you in awe,” says Bush, who believes the top accomplishment in his life is the bliss he’s carved out with his wife and two young children. “I read a lot of books with my kids and some books are amazing, some not that much…but there’s really nothing that tells that story of love and amazement from the point of view of a father. I wanted to put it down on paper, not just for myself, but for fathers everywhere.”; Amazon.com.
