Outskirts Press Announces the Release of New Fiction: How Far? -- A Tale of Determination, DNA, and Drama by Bob Wilber
, June 23, 2022 ) Denver, CO and St. Paul, MN – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service
and book marketing company—is pleased to announce a new novel by Minnesota-based author
? A Tale of Determination, DNA, and Drama is the compelling tale of two young athletes chasing the dream of success.
How Far? follows Brooks Bennett and Eric Olson—a Southern California “surfer dude” baseball player and an overachieving hockey player from Roseau, Minnesota—across their athletic careers. There are a million reasons why Bennett and Olson should have never met, but only one led to their lives intersecting and forever being altered. This is the story of two athletes dealing with massive challenges to reach their greatest potentials, while overcoming adversity, pain and emotion to make it all happen. Two men brought together by destiny, both aiming for greatness but unaware of the pitfalls ahead of them, learn to face challenges and overcome downfalls along the way.
Author Bob Wilber interjects his protagonists with experiences and emotions he felt and observed through over four decades in collegiate and professional sports. “This is a story that has been growing and evolving for decades,” said Wilber from his home in Woodbury, Minnesota. “I know the path Brooks Bennett took because in some small ways it was my path for many years. As a sports marketer I’ve met a few guys exactly like Eric Olson, and I saw them succeed and fail. Athletic success, personal growth, friendships and rivalries mixed with fate all come together in How Far? This book is a passion project and a lesson on the important impact friendships have as we go through life that I think anyone—athlete, man, or woman—who enjoys a compelling read can enjoy.”
