The white prisoner by Ognian Georgiev

Book Description

The white prisoner by Ognian Georgiev

The Indie Book of the Day for 19th of December, 2014!

Genre: Biography, Sports

This wasn’t the first time Galabin Boevski felt oppressed. He had suffered the atrocious legacy of communism and the lack of support that a talented athlete like him should otherwise expect from his motherland.

It had been a week since his arrest. He’d spent a night in the jail of Sao Paulo’s airport, then transferred to another Brazilian prison for temporary detention. Now he was in Itai, a prison for foreigners, full of people from all over the world.

His memories kept rushing in and he kept going over the unfortunate events over and over. What went wrong? He spent his first night in jail with 1500 prisoners who were serving their sentences there – murderers, rapists, fraudsters and thieves, but the majority of them people like him – accused of drug trafficking. “I’m not a mule,” he thought, “I am Galabin Boevski. Legendary weightlifter and Olympic champion, not a criminal!”

…based on a true story…

Extra Innings by Bruce Spitzer

Book Description

Extra Innings by Bruce Spitzer

The Indie Book of the Day for 22nd of August, 2013!

Genre: Science Fiction, Sports

In the year 2092, Ted Williams, the greatest baseball hitter of all time, is brought back to life through the science of cryonics. 

Once again playing for the Red Sox, Williams finds himself trapped in a world he hardly recognizes: the corruption of the game he loves with über-juiced batters and robot pitchers; difficult love affairs clashing with his old desires; and a military conflict of the future in which he must harness the fighter pilot skills he used in his first life.

Dr. Elizabeth Miles is the cryonicist who brings him back to life, initiating a dramatic sequence of medical achievements. She and her young son Johnnie are a constant reminder of what Williams lacked in his first trip around the bases, never devoting much time to love and family. But old habits die hard.

With enemies and allies both on the field and off, Williams must make sense of it all and play on against a machine that he detests, pressure to take the “giddyup” he abhors, unrelenting media mania, and a dystopian world he can’t ignore.

The narrative resonates with the consequences of the major issues we face in our world today—the steroids debate in sports, global warming, corporate greed, technology run rampant, and the moral ambiguity of war.

Extra Innings is alternately poignant and humorous, heartbreaking and joyous. Thought-provoking throughout, it’s a rollicking ride that looks at second chances and redemption, the ability to triumph over adversity, and the search for meaning in this life and the next.

Flawed in his first life, Williams must decide in the second what’s more important, the chance to win his first World Series, or the chance to be a better man?

The Greatest Comeback of all Time is More Than Just a Game.

A challenge for honour turns into a fight for survival at 12,000 feet.

Beneath the polite veneer of Victorian society, a small group of eccentric men and women live double lives as mountaineers. The maverick rock climber O.G.

Hi, I’m Alex. I write books that celebrate the rich cultural heritage of mountaineering in Britain and Europe.

I was born in Huntingdon in 1986. Although having lived in the flatlands of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, and Lincolnshire for most of my life, I have nurtured a passion for the hills since an early age, and have been writing in one form or another for almost as long. My other great passions are history and the early Romantic period of music.

In 2008 I moved to the Clachaig Inn and lived there for over two years, working behind the bar and climbing in my spare time. Writing suffered a bit of a hiatus as there was simply so much else to do! However, I lived through dozens of adventures that directly inspired my writing, and over several years the idea for a new project developed.

In 2009 I established the successful mountaineering blog, Glencoe Mountaineer, which now provides inspiring stories from the peaks of Scotland under the editorship of my brother James. I conducted the Raeburn Project between 2010 and 2011 to study the performance of Victorian mountaineering equipment in Scottish winter climbing scenarios.

I have been writing about mountains and mountaineering ever since. My goal is a simple one: to bring the drama, heroism, and beauty of the mountains into the lives of everyone. I strongly believe that the British hills aren’t only for mountaineers and climbers, and that you don’t have to be the member of an elite group to enjoy them.

Book Description

The Games by Claire Carver-Dias

The Indie Book of the Day for 2nd of March, 2013!

Genre: Sports, Literary

The Games is literary fiction that explores the dark side of athletic pursuits. The novel follows six Olympic hopefuls in various sports as they claw their way to a berth on their national teams. Against the backdrop of their physical and spiritual striving is the tale of Sam, the disaffected brother of an Olympic rower. Isolated and rudderless, he falls under the sway of a social activist and terrorist who has his own insidious plans for the Games. The six Olympic hopefuls are Jayna in basketball, Lexi in rowing, Andrea in kayaking, Vincent in swimming, Yasmine in the marathon, and JJ in rowing. To make it to the top, each must overcome their personal demons. In the process, their bodies, dreams, and relationships will falter and crumble as they fight for a spot at the Olympic Games. In an arena this cutthroat, few will make it, while the rest will have to justify a lifetime’s investment in attaining an athletic prowess that eventually failed to make the cut. Juxtaposed alongside the athletes’ stories is the sordid tale of Sam. As he knows all too well, there are many different kinds of losing, from losing the race to losing oneself. In his search for God and stability, what he encounters are their opposites. His own involvement with terrorism becomes a violent and pathetic attempt to redeem himself from personal failures. This stirring fictionalized account drips with authenticity from the author’s own experiences as an Olympic athlete. Ultimately, The Games is an absorbing tale of false gods, from the search for belonging and redemption to loneliness and personal suffering. In their quest for athletic glory, these ultra-competitive athletes will learn a lifetime’s knowledge of what it means to win and to fail.

Cross-country skiers are hearty folk. The compulsion to race marathon length distances in sub-freezing conditions requires an eternally optimistic and fiercely independent spirit.

Prior to the race, local participants find themselves in the throes of a unique and natural euphoria. They thrill at the prospect of participating shoulder to shoulder with elite international competitors in a wild race through the great Northwoods wilderness. It is the common person’s Olympic ideal! It is Birkie Fever!

Far more than just a severe case of pre-race jitters, Birkie Fever is an adventurous compulsion that fuses with your very essence and forms an integral part of your innermost being. It is the catalyst for a fundamental joy of life that gives you the courage to expand your dreams and the strength to achieve them!

“Beyond Birkie Fever” is the story of how America’s magnificent cross-country ski marathon can expand your horizons and be the gateway to experiences beyond anything you’d ever hoped to imagine!
