Book Spotlight and Giveaway: Home Run

18 Apr

408387Baseball star Cory Brand knows how to win. But off the field, he’s spiraling out of control. Haunted by old wounds and regrets, his future seems as hopeless as his past.

Until one moment—one mistake—changes everything. To save his career, Cory must go back to the town where it all began. His plan is simple: coach the local baseball team, complete a recovery program, and get out as fast as possible. Instead, he runs headfirst into memories he can’t escape … and the love he left behind.

Faced with a second chance he never expected, Cory embarks on a journey of faith, transformation and redemption. And along the way, he discovers a powerful truth: no one is beyond the healing of God.

A novel based on the major motion picture starring Vivica A. Fox and Scott Elrod, Home Run is an inspirational story of the hope and freedom God offers each of us.




73909698Travis Thrasher is the author of more than twenty works of fiction, including Paper Angels and Letters From War. He has been called “the Nicholas Sparks of Christian fiction” by Christian Retailing magazine. Travis lives with his wife and daughters in a suburb of Chicago.

To celebrate Travis’ book and the opening of the movie tomorrow, April 19th, the publisher has very generously given me a book to give away! To enter, just leave me a comment with your favorite sports memory. The giveaway will run through April 25th. Good luck!

    Home Run sounds like an inspirational book that will give hope to all of us since we all sin and make mistakes. I’m especially interested in reading this book/seeing this movie because I work for a ministry called Home Run Ministries. Thanks for making this book available.

    I loved the movie Blindside. I don’t have a favorite sports memory of my own.

    My favorite sports moment was when my daughter’s skating team came in third at their first competition. When they announced them all the parents and kids jumped up and screamed for a very long time. You could see some of the others thinking it’s third not first but for their first competition it was the best and we couldn’t have been prouder!

    My favorite sports memories are my own times of glory. Baseball/softball are on the top of my list. I really do not want to spout my own glory moments.
    I would love to win this book. It is right up my alley

    Haven’t read this author before. I guess a favorite sports memory would be watching our sons wrestle in high school.

    My favorite sports memory is when I was 5 and the big kids let me play baseball with them and didn’t treat me like a little kid. That was a great day for me. Please enter me. Thanks!
