Extra Point Press Adds Author B.J. Rudell to Fantasy Sports Lineup
Extra Point Press Blazes a New Trail in Fantasy Sports Publishing Niche
Sam Hendricks, CEO of Extra Point Press, stated, “We are pleased to bring B.J. Rudell on board at Extra Point Press and are excited about his new book. We look forward to a long and productive publishing relationship and believe his book will increase excitement about the fantasy sports publishing niche that we have created.”
B.J. Rudell's career has included stints as a congressional aide, high school civics teacher, writer, editor, consultant, improv comedy performer and teacher. His first book, Only in New Hampshire, garnered national acclaim, through which he earned "Writer on the Rise" honors from Campaigns & Elections magazine, and for which he garnered more than 40 media appearances, including on CNN and Fox News.
In the fantasy world, B.J. has competed in 16 national fantasy sports competitions, finishing nine times in the top 0.11%--including two first place finishes over nearly 400,000 combined opponents. He lives in Washington, D.C. with his beautiful wife, Carey.
Fantasy Football for Winners has already received positive reviews. Bob Tewksbury, former MLB All-Star pitcher and current Boston Red Sox sport psychology coach, said “This book is perfectly written for the losers who waste time, energy and resources on something they will never, ever become: a GM of a pro football team.”
Award-winning designer Will Harding illustrated Fantasy Football for Winners. Harding was born and raised in Washington, D.C. He is proud to have worked with clients ranging from well-known startups to Fortune 500 brands. He is an artist who has shown locally and continues to pursue his goals as a painter.
When he isn't drawing or designing, Will is avidly searching for the best ways to win his hometown fantasy football league, aptly named The Degenerates, without drafting any players from the Washington Redskins' rivals. A graduate of Syracuse University (2003 National Champions), Will moved back to D.C. where he now resides with his lovely wife, Amanda.
