Solomon Jones has been a long time favorite author of mine. This ebook is just the latest in his great line of literature. If you haven't experience Solomon Jones you are surely missing out. I had the pleasure of being a guest at one of his readings and it was funny and interactive. He will continue to be one of my favorites and I look forward to more from him.

I thoroughly enjoyed Solomon Jones' ebook DADDY'S HOME. He has a terrific talent for dialogue and comedy. I've been a writing consultant for over twenty years, and I have seen alot of work by professional writers which is just not enjoyable. I completely relaxed and enjoyed myself from the very first page of DADDY'S HOME. His characters - family - resounded in my head for days afterward. This is a great book.
