Only Son- Shawn Goodwin and Pamela Meister

One of my best bloggin buddies is a Philadelphia detective and all around shoot from the hip with his opinion kind of guy. I love this about him and the fact that he's a Guinness pounding, ice-hockey playing, Irish toughguy makes him all the more loveable in my eyes. The world (especially Philly) can use a lot more men like him.

Like most bloggers, (including myself- when I'm not killing myself to secure a living for my own family of 7) Shawn has dreamed of becoming published. Through a lot of blood, sweat, and tears (and I mean that literally) he has achieved the dream of getting published even if it meant self-publishing. Self-publishing means self-promoting.

After reading the first two chapters on Amazon, I'm hooked. Much like the show "The First 48" on A&E, (which I'm addicted to) a good book has the First Two Chapters that will greatly increase the likelihood of one's reading of the entire book. In fact, the book reads as its own episode of "The First 48" in the beginning.  The first two chapters can be read here. I anxiously wait for the book to arrive to take the remainder of the ride through a Philadelphia murder investigation.

Thank You Shawn for putting in the time and effort to produce this, you've given aspiring writers like me hope that it can be done!

Nobody asked you to have a family of seven, so why are you suggesting that this is a big hurdle you had to get over?

This isn't a "hurdle", it's a context. It's what I'm occupying myself with at this point in my life.

I was showing my appreciation for someone who went around the system and self published despite all they have going on in their own lives.

You sound as if you have a chip on your shoulder, not me.
