Yes, you heard me. It is #1! Here's the snapshot:
I don't know what to say, except...how cool is that?
You can read more about The Hardest Hit on my website, including the first 37 pages or so, or about how it is the first in a series. I'm working on #2 now. Or go to Amazon, where you can buy the book if you want!

Yes, you read that right. All That Counts will be free from July 20th through July 24th on Amazon.com.
I figured we needed to celebrate a little hockey, since it's off season and not much is happening.
All That Counts is a novel about life and a man's discovery about what is truly important in it.
Graham Wilson is a thirty-something recreational hockey player who decides to follow a long-held desire to become a goaltender. His transition is both comedic and inspiring as he seeks to challenge himself in the midst of a mundane life. Also on display is the curious paradox of the recreational game in American culture (i.e., it means everything, but it is only a game, but it is more than a game, but...). When his team's regular goalie leaves, Graham steps unsteadily into the crease, causing conflict on a team that is used to winning.
Graham's journey is a microcosm of life. Humor, inspiration, camaraderie, love and spite all make their appearances both on and off the ice as Graham struggles to learn what truly is "all that counts."
You can get the book for free on Amazon from 7/20 - 7/24. Enjoy, drop the puck, and game on!
