About G.L. Fontenot

I am a middle-aged man, born and raised in Louisiana and now living in Georgia. Married with two children, my wife and I have been together for 30 years. I've been writing for fun for the past 15 years and got serious about it in the last six. I am extremely excited about Smashwords. They have finally given me the avenue to reach a broad audience, and to see if anyone might find my work of some value. My niece did the artwork for the book cover of "A Song for Daddy". That is a work of fiction I wrote to show the world how far a father might go to save the life of his child. I also have a Science Fiction series titled "A Leap of Fate", which is where my imagination truly lies. Please let me thank you all for the phenomenal support you have shown me for each of my books! I appreciate your interest so very much. If you have any comments or questions, please email me at either...asongfordaddy@att.net...or at...ronindangarth@att.net

Reviews of A Song for Daddy by G.L. Fontenot

Neffy90 reviewed on Nov. 9, 2014

A story that contains many twists and turns, moral dilemmas and a startling reminder of just how many influences and pressures each and everyone one of our decisions is subject to. A Song for Daddy ticked all boxes in my opinion, it had the drama, suspense, the touches of genuine romance, a couple of cliches and most importantly the flaws that make people people.

Admittedly I did find a few bits a little off - I couldn't imagine myself or anyone I know reacting to certain events in the manner that the Landry family did but I guess that's the point of the whole book, or at the very least an undertone... people react differently to things, believe different things to be okay, are willing to sacrifice different amounts of themselves and their lives in order that others can have better.

I feel that the book could have ended at numerous points before it did so - not in a a way, that's to say that I do not feel the book was dragged out. I felt that each word of this book served a purpose, no filler present. What I mean is that a few times towards the end I reached a point where due to the fantastic character development I was more than happy for the story to end and for me to fabricate the futures of the characters. I was content with the content that the author had provided.

I really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting - I will definitely recommend this to friends.

This book was unusual and interesting. A bit long winded in some descriptions but held my interest.

What a great story! It was sweet, sensitive and compelling. Once i started reading it I couldn't put it down. It was short but deep and and takes the reader through the full gamut of human emotions. I identified with the daughter, the mother, even the father as the scenes unfolded. It is a quick, easy read that makes you stay in it til the end....even through the tears. I am looking forward to more tales from my dear friend, G.L.

This is a great story. It will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. I recommend this story for men, women or older children. It will touch anyone who has sacrificed for someone else or had someone sacrifice for them. I would not recommend reading this book in public unless you don’t mind being tearful in public places, this story will tear your heart out.

Immensely moving story about paternal love and its extent. It definitely makes you think about what you would do or how you would react if you were in the position of the mother, father, daughter or son? Definitely worth the read!

This book is wonderfully well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. The tragedy the family goes through is heart wrenching and will cause you to ponder the sacrifices you would take for your own child. A Song for Daddy is a book that will stay with you for many days!
