Get the books free, before anyone else.

If you enjoyed AMERICAN SPORTSWRITER and would like to read future James Hoak novels for FREE before their public releases, click the button below to join my Starting Lineup team.


My Starters are my super fans--readers who want to make an impact on the future of this series.

Starters not only get the books before anybody else; they also have the opportunity to:


  • Influence future readers by being the first to leave reviews.

  • Alert me of errors (although the books have been carefully edited, mistakes can still slip through).

  • Offer feedback before the book is published. Who knows? As a member of my Starting Lineup, your suggestions might make it into the next James Hoak novel!

But you’re under no obligation to do any of that. You might just want to read a free book, which is fine!

As a member of my Starting Lineup, you are the lifeblood of this series. Leaving reviews before launch is so important! Here’s why:

People don’t buy unreviewed books. But unless you sell a book, how do you get reviews? As a member of my Starting Lineup, you can provide a review on Amazon when I’m ready to launch the book to the public. Leaving a review would be so amazingly helpful to me, and I'd really be grateful.
