Blog Tour: Favorite Son by Will Freshwater with Giveaway.

I am tickled to have Will Freshwater stop by with some information on his debut book, Favorite Son.

Each stop is eligible to giveaway an eBook of Favorite Son so make sure you follow the hop. To enter to win a copy of Favorite Son leave your email addy and a comment below about books that deal with politics. Are they a favorite read of yours? Have you read one before?

I can't enter the give away but I'll get us started. I don't recall reading a book that had a plot embroiled with politics. There have been several with rentboys and shady politician side characters (bad guys). But nothing that would be set in DC. The closest I've come is Fantasy novels with kings and court intrigue, which I don't really think counts but the two are so different.

I'll be the first to say that Washington politics is confusing. Thinking about writing about it... well I wouldn't know where to start. I have indulged in watching some episodes of DC politics though. Scandal, Commander and Chief with Gena Davis, but the one I watched the most was The West Wing with Martin Sheen (He-he, back in the day).

Now it's your turn. Have you read any books with a plot line that encompasses modern day politics? Do you have favorites? What do you enjoy about plots like that? You have until 11:59 p.m. eastern time on January 12th to leave a comment. Good Luck!!

Thank you for stopping by and reading!!

Born into a blue-collar family, John Wells beat the odds and came out a winner. As chief of staff to Patrick Donovan, a US senator and aspiring presidential candidate, he enjoys all the power and privilege of a DC insider. But while riding high on a wave of success, he’s blindsided by a series of betrayals from the people he trusts the most. In the space of a single day, John's perfect life unexpectedly unravels when his career falters and his marriage implodes. Following a final, devastating blow, John assumes a new identity as “Peter” and flees to Provincetown, where a tight-knit community of eclectic characters slowly transforms him.

Peter finds himself drawn to Danny Cavanaugh, an enigmatic carpenter who is struggling to come to terms with his own troubled past. As they work together to renovate a local landmark, the two men forge an unlikely friendship that blossoms into love and becomes the foundation for a new life they hope to build together. But when a reversal of fortune pulls John back to DC, the treacherous world of politics he thought he’d left behind threatens to destroy his chance at true happiness.
