Small Town Dreams: A tale of love, life, travel and football

by J. F. Cumming

SMALL TOWN DREAMS
A tale of love, life, travel and football
by J.F. Cumming

A humorous tale following a football fanatic and his long-suffering girlfriend as they travel around the world, spending an unexpected redundancy payment in Thailand, Hong Kong, China, Australia, Easter Island, Chile and America.

Growing up in the small English town of High Wycombe wasn’t overly glamorous. James spent his youth dreaming of two things – travelling the world and, more ambitiously, seeing his lowly local football team, Wycombe Wanderers, experience a glorious FA Cup run.

As the reality of adulthood took hold, neither dream looked any closer to realityâ?¦ then came a redundancy for James and a First Round draw at home against Harrow Borough for the Wanderers.

SMALL TOWN DREAMS follows the events of the next six months. Six extraordinary months in a very ordinary life.

From River Island to Easter Island. From High Wycombe to Hong Kong. From old York to New York. From Millwall to the Great Wall. From Harrow Borough to Sydney Harbour. And for one unknown footballer – from unemployed zero to Ceefax hero.

A boy. A girl. A trip of a lifetime.
Around the world in an FA Cup daze.
SMALL TOWN DREAMS

Come and join the adventure!



Keep Possession: A World Cup Fictional Thriller

by Drew Leiden

The original World Cup trophy was stolen from its bullet-proof case in Brazil in 1983. Never recovered. Vanished for decades. The stolen trophy haunts to this day, simultaneously serving as the Holy Grail of sports and the shame of South America.

What if the missing original World Cup trophy resurfaced today? What if the stolen trophy was now intended as a bribe to secure tournament hosting rights in the geopolitics of World Cup soccer?

Jack McDonald is a reformed soccer hooligan, a man who rose above his brutal adolescence, climbing all the way to a staff job in the West Wing of the White House. But an East Room incident revives his violent past. As a consequence, Jack is forced to work undercover to reveal the corruption behind the suspicious World Cup bid of a Middle Eastern country, whose secret deal with the President of the United States threatens to be uncovered.

Imagine stripping the World Cup hosting rights from the Middle East. Imagine the anger and resentment and terror that could ensue. Imagine if someone used that soccer passion as a geopolitical sleight of hand.

Think you know the world’s game? The history of the sport is as controversial as today’s front page bribery scandals. Rooted in the true history, Drew Leiden’s thriller Keep Possession will take you on a quest for the trophy: Mussolini conspired for it; Hitler searched for it; billions of fans chanted for it, while thieves lurked in the shadows in 1966 London and 1983 Brazil.

Ultratortoise – diary of a former sofa jockey turned ultramarathon runner (Ultratortoise Series Book 4)

by Chris Foreman

“…Chris Foreman, went from being a confessed couch potato who couldnt even run for the bus, to running The Wall, a 69 mile course along Hadrian’s Wall. This incredible improvement is described in his new book Ultratortoise…”

Hazel Sillver, Journalist and article writer for Women’s Running Magazine 2014
——————————————————————————————————–
This book contains all of my previous 3 shorter journals combined together for the first time, edited for a fresh perspective with an extra 15,000 words and many more pictures. In total this book now has over 55+ thousand words, many images and online links to further detailed information and maps of routes and other online sources.

This book covers my personal diary, training plans and general waffling-on across the 4 years it took me to earn the medals now hanging up on the wall in my hallway.

How, trying to avoid getting run over by an ambulance, I ran into the back of a 25 stone man during my first half marathon and how I took down a Womble in the London Marathon. Also, how I managed to run almost across England in a 69 mile ultra and somehow manage to make it over the finish line still conscious and on my own two feet.

Along the way I hope it entertains and informs you enough to perhaps consider getting out to run a little or even run further than you may do already, and certainly to look past the limitations we give ourselves.

The book constantly explores the question – how can the bottom of your feet help you sort out stuff going on in the back of your head?
