How far must we travel to find our way home?

Nothing could have prepared Brennan Glover for the car crash that claimed the lives of his wife and six-year-old daughter. Stricken with grief, the only things that get him through each day are breaking his sobriety and clinging to Fender-the family dog and the sole survivor of the crash.

Desperate to distance Brennan from tragedy, his two closest friends take him on the cross-country road trip they had always talked about. But what begins as an effort to mend his broken heart ends up unraveling a secret that changes everything he thought he knew about his family. Can a journey of six thousand miles lead Brennan to acceptance and new beginnings?

From finding the good in an often cruel world to learning to say goodbye to those we love most, this sophomore release from author Brent Jones is sure to leave readers longing for home, wherever that may be.

Praise for Fender:

"Brent is a kick-ass storyteller. . . . I have little doubt [Fender] will tug at the heartstrings of anyone who reads it." -Dana Gore, Author of Choose Awareness

"Brent Jones has exceeded expectation that his sophomore novel, Fender, might best the debut. This emotionally packed literary saga . . . is powerful and profane and masterfully examines the overwhelming condition of stupefying grief." -Stanley McShane (Virginia Williams), Author of Cocos Island Treasure

"[Fender] is as visceral as it should be. . . . There is laughter, tears, foul language, anger, more laughter and eventually, glimmers of hope . . . I can't recommend this one enough." -Shannon O'Sullivan, Book Reviewer (readsandreels.com)

"Another great read from a talented author. The characters in [Fender] feel so authentic and real." -Michael McDonald, Author of Walking Away From Depression

"Jones does not gloss over the trouble, pain or darkness in a person's life experience, but he feathers [Fender] with quick, sure glimpses of the good in life . . . It leaves me with the feeling of having met real people. . . . I'm waiting eagerly for Jones's third book!" -Amy Roebuck, Fort Erie Public Library

"Definitely check out [Fender]. You will run the gambit of emotions but it is worth the tears." -Jessica Bronder, Book Reviewer (jbronderbookreviews.com)

About the Author

From bad checks to bathroom graffiti, Brent Jones has always been drawn to writing. He won a national creative writing competition at the age of fourteen, although he can't recall what the story was about. Seventeen years later, he gave up his freelance career as a social media manager to pursue creative writing full-time. Fender and The Fifteenth of June are his first two novels.

Jones writes from his home in Fort Erie, Canada. He's happily married, a bearded cyclist, a mediocre guitarist, (sometimes) vegetarian, and the proud owner of two dogs with a God complex. Subscribe to his newsletter (AuthorBrentJones.com) or follow him on social media (@AuthorBrentJ) for updates.
