Beth Fehlbaum’s Young Adult website is featuring an interview of me in which I talk about Cracking the Ice, how it came to be written, my writing process and all that good stuff. Check it out.
Beth will randomly select one lucky person who leaves a comment as the winner of a free autographed copy.
I hope you find the interview interesting and good luck winning that freebie.
It was my privilege to appear recently on the public TV show Off the Shelf with host Veronica Andrews. This half-hour show, produced by Dana Frazao, has previously attracted authors like Nicholas Sparks and Israeli poet Admiel Kosman. I had a great time talking about Cracking the Ice.
You can watch it online here.

Cracking the Ice has been getting a great reception. Check out some of the following endorsements.
“To say I couldn’t put it down doesn’t say enough. A must read for every adult and young adult alike.” — Pete Webster, UNH Hockey Radio Network
“This is a terrific book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a great story, hockey fan or not.” — Dan Hannigan, Maine Hockey Radio Network
“I found it to be a terrifically entertaining read. It keeps you turning pages. You don’t want to go to bed at night.” – Bob Ellis, UMass-Lowell Radio
“When the final buzzer sounds, Dave Hendrickson’s Cracking the Ice will have you shouting GOOOAAAALLLL!” — Karen Dellecava, author of A Closer Look
“It’s been a long time since I’ve been disappointed that a book ends. For the last thirty or so pages, I kept hoping the pages wouldn’t run out. The tension kept rising right to the last page.” — Terry Edge, YA/children’s author and editor
I’ll be signing books at the Barnes and Noble in Peabody, Massachusetts, on April 14 at 2 p.m. Hope to see a lot of you there.
I’ll be posting about other signings shortly.
Shelly McArthur’s North by Northwest bookstore in Lincoln City, Oregon, hosted a signing earlier this month for Kristine Kathyrn Rusch, Christina York, Matt Buchman, and myself. I had a great time and Shelly sold every last copy he’d ordered of Cracking the Ice!
Here’s a photo of Matt and I (he’s the one on the right).
And here’s a photo of Kris Rusch (right) and Chris York (left). It was an honor to share the stage with these outstanding writers.
Thanks to Steve York (www.yorkwriters.com and www.christymystery.com) for the photos.
Joshua Boyd interviewed me about Cracking the Ice in The Georgetown Record. It’s a substantial one, over a full half page.
What a wonderful, wonderful day. The book release party in Boston was a blast! Great food and drink. The readings went well (I think). Lots of people either bought the book or had me autograph books they’d gotten earlier, already read, and in virtually every case said that they’d loved. I’m on cloud nine.
Long and Short Reviews gave Cracking the Ice four stars! It then went on to say many complimentary words about the book, finishing with the following:
The best of humanity is explored — and some of the worst, exposed. It is very readable, written with a clear and powerful voice, and is engaging from beginning to end.
It’s great to see the reception this book is getting.
