Don t Put Me In Coach Book Excerpt:

An irreverent, hilarious insider's look at big-time NCAA basketball, through the eyes of the nation's most famous benchwarmer and author of the popular blog ClubTrillion.com (3.6m visits!). Mark Titus holds the Ohio State record for career wins, and made it to the 2007 national championship game. You would think Titus would be all over the highlight reels. You'd be wrong. In 2006, Mark Titus arrived on Ohio State's campus as a former high school basketball player who aspired to be an orthopedic surgeon. Somehow, he was added to the elite Buckeye basketball team, given a scholarship, and played alongside seven future NBA players on his way to setting the record for most individual career wins in Ohio State history. Think that's impressive? In four years, he scored a grand total of nine—yes, nine—points. This book will give readers an uncensored and uproarious look inside an elite NCAA basketball program from Titus's unique perspective. In his four years at the end of the bench, Mark founded his wildly popular blog Club Trillion, became a hero to all guys picked last, and even got scouted by the Harlem Globetrotters. Mark Titus is not your average basketball star. This is a wild and completely true story of the most unlikely career in college basketball. A must-read for all fans of March Madness and college sports!

Walk On Book Excerpt:

In this true, compelling account of perseverance and hope from Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll's assistant, a young journalist walks on to a top-ranked USC football team and, guided by his faith, shares God's love, launching him on an unexpected journey with an amazing outcome. Had anyone told Ben Malcolmson that he'd someday be a wide receiver on the national champion USC football team--after not playing football since an unfortunate fifth-grade Pop Warner experience--he would have called them crazy. As a reporter for The Daily Trojan, in the spirit of George Plimpton, he participated in walk-on tryouts for the team and was dumbfounded to find himself listed on the roster. His position on the team never amounted to much in a game-time contribution, but Ben felt strongly that his faith was inextricably linked to his purpose. He felt called to anonymously place Bibles in each USC teammate locker on Christmas Eve--to resounding indifference and rejection from his friends. It wasn't until three years later, when his role at USC had led to a role with Coach Pete Carroll at the Seahawks organization, that an old friend connected with Ben and told him that one of the Bibles had captivated the heart of a teammate in the three days before his death. With a humble spirit dedicated to consistent acts of discipleship, Ben Malcolmson is an authentic voice for the power of simple obedience and trust, for what can happen when a believer allows God to work in a life. Walk On is the result of God using his faithful people to work in the lives of others.

Dare to Prepare Book Excerpt:

Over the course of a forty-year career in the worlds of law, sports, business, and politics, Ron Shapiro has worked with and advised an incredible variety of people. What he’s found is that the secret ingredient for getting into the winner’s circle is simply the discipline of methodical preparation: that old-school, step-by-step way of having all your ducks in a row, whether you are an executive getting ready to do a deal or make a speech; a pitcher studying the traits of opposing hitters and keeping a meticulous notebook of their strengths and weaknesses; an international trade negotiator who knows all about the issues and the people on the other side before sitting down at the table; or a surgeon who rehearses like a classical musician. Deep down, you know you should do it. But how often do you wing it and fly by the seat of your pants because “Gosh, I don’t have time . . . I’ve done this before . . . I know what I’m doing”? It is obvious that you have to get ready for whatever game you’re playing, but all too frequently methodical preparation is the missing ingredient in today’s world of instant analysis, easy access to information, and glibness that sounds good at first but is unconnected with the reality at hand. In Dare to Prepare, successful people such as wine guru Robert Parker, investment legend Bill Miller, pianist Leon Fleisher, Goldman Sachs partner Lisa Fontenelli, broadcaster Bob Costas, firefighter Ann Marie Tierney, New York Mets manager Willie Randolph, and many others share the way they apply discipline in preparing for career-changing games, deals, meetings, and interviews. Cal Ripken Jr. played thousands of games in the major leagues but prepared for each like it was his first. NPR host Liane Hansen has interviewed countless people but approaches each interview with the same meticulous research time and time again. Make sure there are no slips “twixt cup and lip” as you get ready for your next personal or professional challenge by daring to prepare.

Now, she planned to get back everything that was hers, Cienna and Queen of Hearts, by any means necessary. Cienna just wanted to live and love. But it doesn't seem to be in the cards for her. Love is tricky and navigating it to put perfect couples together is what Cienna does best. But, who can trust a Queen of Hearts who can't keep her own life together?

Honor in the Son Book Excerpt:

The year is 1981, and Stefano DiTommaso has a desperate problem: his family debt. The older of two Italian-American brothers, he must uphold his family's honor by repaying this debt, incurred in Sicily by his father many years before. It isn't monetary, but the debt keeps him under the thumb of a New York City organized-crime group-with the safety of his family dependent on his success at doing their bidding. Over the years, the teachings of the criminal organization, as well as his own experiences, have developed Stefano's talents in many areas--including the use of weapons. But his abilities are a double-edged sword. And his desperation is caused by the fear that, with the criminal organizations demands escalating, it is only a matter of time before they compel him to become a killer. His situation is even more complicated by the fact that he is a Catholic priest. When a violent crime is committed involving his sister-in-law, Stefano and his brother journey to the Florida Keys in search of retribution. With the area already a seething cauldron from race riots, violent dopers, and "Marielitos," adding them to the mix will be just the right ingredient to make the pot boil over. In Key West their dangerous quest thrusts the brothers into a complex, violent world of drug smugglers, murderers, and crooked cops. Still, a few heroes emerge to help them. And while everyone seems to have their own secrets and hidden agenda, Stefano finally gets the opportunity to use some of his abilities in a positive, personal way. But, when their interlude in the Keys has ended, it has only served to postpone Stefano's focus on his incessant dread: the family debt. Will he ever be free of it? Finally, he must return to New York City to confront it.
