Intent front coverFreeze Time Media recently published “Intent: A Practical Approach to Applied Sport Science for Athletic Development.” “Intent,” by Justin Roethlingshoefer and Devan McConnell,  takes you inside the world of two strength and conditioning coaches and how they continue to develop a holistic approach to sport science to work with their players to help them achieve their optimum levels of strength, power, and speed. Intent explains the different aspects of sport science to give players an edge and to assist head coaches in planning their practice and game strategies. Strength and conditioning coaches help provide head coaches with a physically and emotionally better-prepared athlete. This book does not talk about a set program but shows different components that enable strength and conditioning coaches to establish individual programming while maintaining team mentality. The methodology shared in Intent can be used from high school to all levels of professional sports. It takes a mindfulness on everyone’s part to make the elements of Intent work. It takes intent. When players and coaches are on the same page, that team can reach for the highest rung.

George Bailey’s Got Nothing On Me

Growing up on a traveling carnival and surrounded by a host of real life Damon Runyan and O Henry characters has proven to be a truly wonderful life for Cy Holliday, author of “George Bailey’s Got Nothing on Me: A Narrative History of the Holliday Family.”

The author’s paternal grandfather, father, and mother were instrumental in providing him a firm foundation for all of life’s challenges. From Broadway to carnival midways to the Atlantic City Boardwalk, these stories speak of a simpler time, but the life lessons are as applicable today as they were in the past. Mom was a Broadway star who worked with all the big band leaders of the 1930s and ‘40s. Dad was a carnie that grew up during the depression and lived by his wits. Grandpa was a carnie and a prizefighter. They and their friends formed the basis of what became the author’s life story, and a fascinating look at a different time in our country. Covering seven generations of the Holliday family from the 1700s to today, George Bailey’s Got Nothing on Me takes the reader on a unique genealogic ride with characters that are far from perfect and certainly not “politically correct.” Filled with individual triumphs and tragedies, it is as interesting a family memoir as you are likely to find.

“George Bailey’s Got Nothing on Me” is available in print and as an e-book.

The Hollow

The Hollow Front CoverRecently published by Freeze Time Media and written by River Eno, “The Hollow is the second book in the Anastasia Evolution Series. Anastasia “Andru” Weber was always different. From the day she was born, strong faerie magik filled her blood and soul. She tried to ignore it, to not let the power inside her body rule her every action. She tried to live a normal life as a military officer, but paranormal things have a way of creeping up on you when you’re surrounded by ancient, sometimes volatile vampires. One of those scary vampires is her partner, Romeo, who is jealous, territorial, and seems to want to distract her eyes away from his seducing father, General Galen.

However, in life, you accept the bad with the good. Andru has true friends that walk by her side. Some, like her best friend, Alivia, help protect her secrets. Some, like Dacon, her ex-boyfriend, let her know when she’s out of line. To her credit, she was promoted to captain the same month she turned thirty, prompting Alivia to throw her a birthday bash she wouldn’t soon forget. One reason was because the King of Genesis was there, watching her every move. Also, General Galen practically forced himself on her, a situation that left her anxiety-ridden but enjoying it all the same. But mostly, Andru wouldn’t forget that night because terrorists bombed the building the party was in — and an unknown criminal knocked her senseless.

When life takes a turn, Andru sneaks off to see her faerie family, hoping to bring balance back to her magik. But when her partner is abducted during a routine military operation, the deadly situation might suggest a friendly foe rather than guerrilla extremists.

And still, that hidden earth magik haunts Andru. It drives her forward, pushing her, and those closest to her, into mortally dangerous situations. When she comes face to face with a demon, the magik trapped inside refuses to stay hidden any longer. Will the very fabric of Anastasia’s life, and all of those standing with her, be forever changed?

“The Hollow” is available in print and as an e-book.

Love and War

“Love and War – and Eternally Damning Prophecies,” by River Eno and published by Freeze Time Media, is the first book in the Anastasia Evolution Series.

Love and War Front Cover

Anastasia Drucilla Ekaterina Weber’s normal life came to an abrupt end when she was nine years old. That was the day she was left waiting in a closet after her brothers decided to stop playing hide and seek. That was the day her anxious emotions shifted her body’s shape from human to that of a faerie of the dark class, the Unseelie. From then on much of her time was spent learning how to hide what she was from her family, and the old vampire leaders that governed the country where she grew up.

Andru had always felt different. But the tiny faeries she spoke to in her room at night told her she was gifted, not particularly special. She knew strong magik was in her blood and soul, because her family had been practicing pagans for generations. Only hers wasn’t the magik of the witches in her family; they were empathic and psychic, to be sure, but commonplace as far as tangible conjuring was concerned. Sometimes, she could make things happen just by thinking about them, or so it seemed.

Except, none of that mattered if you weren’t allowed to let anyone know about the extraordinary things you could do. How much fun could you have when you’re afraid the tiniest slip of words could put you on the radar of the opportunistic vampires who were always searching to get their hands on true magikal power?

The vampires of the country of Genesis were undeniably dominant. Their gifts were obviously potent, but they were also quite singular. They didn’t call on the Earth’s forces to aid them the way the fey did — partly because the strength of the parent determines the strength of the child, and most vampires didn’t have the power to connect themselves to the magik of the gods. Most young vampires had never tried to do such things. Few would know where to begin.

Now, as a military officer in the Philadelphia Territory and the partner of a high-ranking official, Andru is a strong, often superior, soldier. But as her thirtieth birthday approaches, her carefully maintained magik is becoming dislocated, and her mind is constantly distracted. The control she’s perfected is crumbling the closer she becomes to her vampire partner, Romeo, and his father, General Galen.

Her best friend, Alivia and her ex boyfriend, Dacon — fully aware of her secrets — do their best to keep her grounded. But when extremists target her birthday party and military headquarters, is it another act of terrorism by neighboring countries or does someone want to expose her and all the winged skeletons in her supernatural closet?

“Love and War – and Eternally Damning Prophecies” is available in print and as an e-book.
