It's release day for HOW TO WORSHIP A GODDESS

HOW TO WORSHIP A GODDESS (Amazon, B&N) is now on shelves and to celebrate I'm giving away two copies of Lucy and Brandon's love story. All you have to do is comment here on this blog.

Since we've been talking hot hockey hunks for the past couple of weeks, tell me who your favorite hockey hunk is. And if you don't have one, feel free to look through mine and make him you're own.

I think you'll find today's Hot Hockey Hunk pretty interesting.

Reading Royals coach Larry Courville began his professional career as a left winger in 1991 with the OHL Cornwall Royals before bouncing all around the AHL with a couple stints in the NHL with the Vancouver Canucks. He played his first stint with the Reading Royals in the 2001-2002 season before he joined the Royals exclusively from 2004-2008. When he removed his helmet after his last game and raised his stick to the fans at the Sovereign Center, there were more than a few teary eyes in the stands. Larry was retiring. We would miss him.

We wouldn't have to miss him for long. The start of the 2008-2009 proved a tough one for new Royals head coach Jason Nobili. And when he was released in January, the rumor mill had already been in full swing: Larry was returning. Turned out not to be a rumor.

On January 6, 2009, Larry returned to Reading's arena, this time as head coach. The crowd gave him a standing ovation. He still holds the position today.

I'm not going to tell you that Brandon in HOW TO WORSHIP A GODDESS is based on Larry. Brandon is totally my creation. But you wouldn't be mistaken in thinking that there's a little of Larry's DNA, a little of Larry's grit, in Brandon. And maybe a little of that deep voice...
