CINCINNATI, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- First One Digital Publishing announces the digital release of Vera Jones' new book, Play Through the Foul. This faith-based story chronicles Jones' experience in overcoming adversities, or, as she calls them, life's fouls. Play Through the Foul will be available across all digital readers and distributor platforms including iTunes, Barnes & Noble and Sony as well as http://www.FirstOnePublishing.com.
Using basketball anecdotes, Jones takes readers through her personal stories of trials and triumph. From discovering her husband's cheating, through divorce, to losing her mother and her 10-year-old son diagnosed with a brain tumor, Jones found a way to fight through the fouls and win.
The former ESPN commentator and NCAA basketball coach is well known for her award-winning television and radio broadcast career. She is also respected for her reporting work on the Big Ten Network, ESPN, Fox Sports, Madison Square Garden Network, and NBA-TV as well as her work as a motivational speaker.
Working with First One Digital Publishing allows Jones to share her message with friends, fans and those seeking strength. Jones joins Bishop Donald Hilliard, Pastor De'Andre Salter, Brunell Donald and other inspirational writers on First One's faith-based platform.
If there is one thing Jones has learned, it's how to handle what life throws at you. "If life is the ultimate game," she says, "you better master the rules and learn how to play through any foul."
