Number 1

Hey. Just letting you all know I've started my own blog to keep you all updated on the progress of my first (as yet untitled!!!) book.  It's based on true events that happened and, so far, I've generated a lot of interest from both my friends and.. total strangers.
I'll keep you updated as I'm working hard to finish it now. Not long to go :)
Cheers
Kev

  3. Hey mate, I enjoyed reading both of your stories. I really enjoyed the one about little john and I wanted to read more!
    I also enjoyed Affairs. You have some talent going for you, don't give up, keep honing your skills and you will do amazingly well.
    I'm looking forward to reading more.

  4. Hi Jase.
    Thank you for you're complement :) I am glad that you enjoyed both reads. The Affairs is now called Louie has landed. Once you read more in to the book then you would know why its called that ;0)! I will continue to finish the Little John story after this one is complete. Both reads will be fantastic and i know you would enjoy them very much :)Thanks again. Have a great weekend :0)

  5. Hi Kev!

    I absolutely LOVE the sample chapters you've sent me from your book, LOUIE HAS LANDED! Although it's a first draft, the talent shows through loud and clear!

    As the characters, Mark and Sarah meet, and become more acquainted, I wanted to keep reading to find out what happens next! I couldn't stop reading it! That's the first sign of a good book!

    Along with the developing story, there's a lot of surprising dialog that kept me laughing, which makes it even more a fun read!

    You certainly are a gifted writer, and I was very impressed by how the storyline is built in such an interesting and organized manner.

    The choice of narrating this story in 1st person is an excellent one! I imagined Mark's voice telling the story in the movie, LOUIS HAS LANDED!

    Keep it up! See you on the red carpet!

    Best regards,

    Kate Spencer

  7. Hey.. Thx for the read.
    I found it to be compelling and totally readable too. The characters have a warmth about them and I feel I could get to know them.
    I look forward to reading the rest of the book as I can only imagine where it's going to lead after reading the first few chapters.
    As a songwriter and musician, depth and scope is important to me. I only have a few minutes to develop a story in my creative work but you have pages and words and brawn and so much colour.
    Although there are no sounds or pictures in a book, it's easy to feel these senses when reading.
    I wish you luck (though I doubt you'll need it)
    Regards. A

  9. I'm so proud of you for opening up your life for others to enjoy. It is a very scary/exciting thing to have people reading your work, but for it to be stories from your actual life is awesome. I too have lived a wild/crazy/unimaginable life but I don't have the courage to do what you have done. Rock on Keven you are great!

  12. Hiya Kev

    WOW!!...What can I say?!...I totally bloody loved both of the samples you sent, I honestly can't wait for you to finish them so I can read the full versions! I have to say that I couldn't read them fast enough and was rather upset when there was nothing else left to read :-( !!

    I loved "Affairs" as your personality came through and you kept going off on one and starting other stories, it shows you have a lot to say and it wouldn't surprise me if there's many more books to come!!!

    I also thoroughly enjoyed reading "Little John" and I hope he gets revenge on his bullies and gets an happy ever after!!

    Happy writing and hurry up please!! lol

  13. Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for sendin me a few chapters of each of your books what a great read i loved what i have read and it has left me wanting more can i pre-order one of each book. After what i have read i think youve had a mad life and hopefully the future will be free of bullies and mad women. I would offer to help you promote your book but from what i have read i believe your books will sell themselves. Take care of yourself and stay away from mad women lol.
