The Galactic Football League Bundle is a Science Fiction Space Opera Box Set with more than 10,000 ratings and reviews on Goodreads and Google Play: The Rookie, The Starter, The All-Pro, The MVP, The Champion. The Galactic Football League is a series of scifi/crime/sports mashup books that sets a star-spanning hero’s quest against the backdrop of a far-future American pro football league. Intricate world building and aliens that truly “alien,” from a #1 New York Times bestselling author.


“THE ROOKIE is a wild ride that takes football to the next level. Set in a future day of corruption, bigger bodies and bigger stakes, it’s Rollerball between the white lines and a fascinating read.” 
— John Clayton, ESPN NFL Analyst.

Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, THE ROOKIE is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of "Any Given Sunday" with the space opera style of "Star Wars" and the criminal underworld of "The Godfather." Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed and rival players are assassinated. 

Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy that has been raised all his life to hate, and kill, those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."

Remember the days when, with very little equipment and just a few kids, you could have an endless amount of fun playing games?

Those days are back. And Physical Education for Homeschool, Classroom, and Recreation Settings: 102 Games With Variations adds a twist to those fun games: They are educational as well.

The 102 games and 10 dance and gymnastics activities in this book are specifically designed for small-group settings. They’re great for

• parents who homeschool or who simply want to supplement their children’s PE instruction and have fun with their kids;

• physical education teachers in small-school settings or who break their class into smaller groups; and

• leaders of after-school, recreation, intramural, and recess programs.

While the settings may change, the results don’t: Children learn skills and healthy concepts while playing games that keep them coming back for more.

Physical Education for Homeschool, Classroom, and Recreation Settings offers the following:

• Games and activities that are ready-made, easy and fun to play, and grounded in research

• Yearly lesson plans for grades K-5, making it easy for you to teach

• Games that are grounded in American Academy of Pediatrics research on the importance of play, the Canadian Sport for Life model, physical literacy, and the Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) approach

The TGfU approach helps children learn interpersonal, social reasoning, and problem-solving skills, which they can apply to multiple situations. And as they take part in the fun physical activities, kids develop fundamental abilities and learn how to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle through regular physical activity.

The book includes a game finder to help you see what skills and equipment are involved for each game. Photos, illustrations, and easy-to-use components help make the games simple to teach, and you’ll be shown how to modify each game as needed for your children and to ensure the game applies to different sports. Each game ends with questions that lead to understanding the skills and concepts applied during the game.

Physical Education for Homeschool, Classroom, and Recreation Settings includes

• warm-up, cool-down, and fitness games;

• target, territory invasion, and net and wall games;

• dribbling, striking, and fielding games; and

• dance and gymnastics activities.

Whether you are looking for a useful PE book for your homeschooler or looking to supplement your physical education program, recreation program, or after-school or intramural program, this book is a great find. You’ll find it comprehensive, well grounded, and filled with challenging educational games that your kids will love.

Yip Chi Chuan, a young martial and spiritual ascetic, must flee as the only home he has ever known, the ancient monastery of the Priests of K'un Lun, is destroyed by a newly ascendant extradimensional evil. Cast out and alone, Yip strikes out on a quest spanning the breadth of his home world of Ea'ae and into the greater macroverse beyond in an attempt to unseat an all-consuming Darkness rooted in his once vaunted order's distant past.

Will Yip, the last of his kind to walk the wide world beyond his fallen sanctuary, succeed where his mighty brethren failed in ages past?

Unfortunately for Yip, the answer appears all too clear... Without the guidance and teachings of his lineage, pursued by malevolent supernatural agents of the Cabal, unable to fully defend himself in a world steeped in magic, his quest may fail before it ever begins.

Unfazed by his limitations, guided by his inner vision and direct experience of the energies of life, the radiant chi suffusing and enlivening the world all around, he is determined to triumph where others have faltered.

To win forward, he will need help...but first he must survive.

A blend of Western fantasy and Eastern martial arts and mysticism, the Chronicles of the Fists is an epic trilogy recounting Yip's adventures against all odds.

Edited by Ashley Davis, Priestess of K'un Lun

From #1 New York Times bestselling author of TRAVEL TEAM, HEAT, and MILLION-DOLLAR THROW comes a cheer-worthy, family-friendly football novel set amid the Friday Night Lights world of Texas high school football.

Jake Cullen is a freshman quarterback playing high school football in the high-pressure land of Friday Night Lights (Texas). He is also the brother of Wyatt Cullen, who quarterbacked his team to the Texas State Championship last season--not to mention the son of former NFL quarterback and local legend, Troy Cullen. To be a Cullen in Texas is to be royalty . . . and a quarterback. All of which leaves 14-year-old Jake in a Texas-sized shadow, a tall order for any boy, especially one who's merely a freshman.

While his teammates assume the starting job will be handed to Jake on a silver platter, the truth is that he has to fight for every snap and every ounce of respect. Jake may be a Cullen and he may play quarterback, but he is not his brother or his father. Being a good teammate comes naturally to Jake; being a winner and a celebrity does not. He's just like every other boy--awkward around a pretty girl, in awe of his famous family, and desperate to simultaneously blend in and cast his own shadow.

Inspired by the real-life Manning family of quarterbacks (father Archie, Super Bowl-winning sons Peyton and Eli) and set amid the football-crazy culture of Texas immortalized in Friday Night Lights, QB 1 is a coming-of-age story perfect for the fan of MILLION-DOLLAR THROW, HEAT, and of course FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS.

"This is a wonderful book by a great writer.  All football fathers and sons will enjoy it."--Archie Manning
