HT_SummerCamp_sidebarIt’s winter time in a lot of places. There’s been snow in NYC this week. Even down south in Alabama and Texas it’s been colder than usual.

So, why not kick back and read about summer camp? For the first time in the Hat Trick series, Simon & Alex take a summer trip in Hat Trick Overtime: Summer Camp. This last short story installment in the series is available now from JMS Books or available for pre-order on Amazon, where it will become available on January 18.


To celebrate the release, I’m also offering the chance to win a free ebook to one lucky commenter who says what their favorite summertime activity is. The winner will have the choice of either Hat Trick Overtime: Summer Camp or, for those new to the series, the original Hat Trick.

Simon and Alex, now between their junior and senior years at the University of Michigan, decide to put their jobs on hold for a month and take the opportunity to coach hockey at a summer camp for teenagers.

They have a cabin full of good players to work with and the focus is getting them ready to win the camp championship. One camper, sixteen-year-old Dylan, requests extra help because he needs to get a scholarship and the guys make it their mission to help him succeed.

With their best friend Leo along for the trip, Simon and Alex are set up for a great time at camp, until another coach tries to seduce them. How they respond to the unwanted advances, while balancing commitments to their campers, will put them both — and their relationship — to the test.
