Shelter (Mickey Bolitar, #1) by Harlan Coben
Derek the bouncer still had me in a killer grip, but we were nearly the same height. I bent my neck forward, tucking my chin to my chest, and then snapped my head back with all my might. Because of time constraints, family obligations and workloads, the number of appearances I do is limited. If you wish to make a request, you can send it here: Our book club is reading one of your books. I can tell you that the themes I love best involve family — the ties and bonds we all know.
I enjoy stories where the past reverberates and sends shock waves to the present. I enjoy novels about old secrets and missing people who may still be alive, about loss, about redemption. That should get your started! The books are like my children. Do you know the ending before you begin? I usually know the ending before I start.
I know very little about what happens in between.

I hope you understand. How do I get published? My advice would be to NOT try to market or sell your novel until it is done. I mean, completely done, done done, fully-finished and ready to go, and a few other redundant phrases like that.
I do suggest that you find an agent.
