Its here :)

As you will be aware by reading my post last year, January 2012 I self published Louie Has Landed 'The Early Days' and in February Louie Has Landed 'The Second Encounter' was born for others to enjoy the good times and the bad times which relationships can bring.
This series was a story told from the heart and I had no idea what I was getting into with the whole author business; all I knew that I had a story that was crying to come out me, and it did!! I told my stories the way it was and who I was back then, I took the bull by the horns not worrying about critics and what other people would think of me. They where about me and the feelings I had at that time, but once I started writing I couldn't stop and my writing then became a passion and a gift that I never knew I had. I had authors praising me for my work and being able to hold a great story together that's very open and full of so much passion; they felt everything I wanted the reader to feel. It wasn't about grammar or what mistakes any critics would pick up on, it was my heart and being able to hold a great story together. This was a huge achievement of its own for me.

When I first started to write these stories, they were meant to be as one full story, but unfortunately the heart just kept writing and by the time I had finished I had to make the story into two books because of the maximum word count that was aloud to upload at the time. I had only gone over by 16.900 words, 'Oh dear' I then had to go back two the drawing board to make them into two great stories.

My main focus has been on the dialogue and keeping the story flowing at a much faster pace and getting everything as perfect as it should be. I have surprised myself with how far I have come and how much I have learnt and improved dramatically along the way.

How I became a writer is in my stories, and when the readers read that, they where impressed with the talent that was there. Yes the stories needed some TLC, but for me reliving it was hard enough to go back to, but I am delighted to say that I did take the bull by the horns again, and I now bring you the full story in one fantastic novel. Louie Has landed 'The Early Days' and Louie Has Landed 'The Second Encounter' has been reborn and I bring you 'Passion' and anyone who reads it will see there is plenty of that in this fantastic story, but all in a good way of course.

I am just posting this to make you all aware that, Louie has risen and will be out for your enjoyment very soon. Thank you to everyone for their wonderful support. You all know who you are and as you know, I'm not the kind of person to forget. Edie Mosback, @Pie0326Edie, has been a rock to me in the short time I have known this wonderful lady who has now become a great friend on this journey. I can't thank Edie enough for the help and time that she has invested in me and my work. I would also like to say thank you to Denis Campbell, @UKProgressive, for giving me this idea, which to be honest I thought was impossible at the time, but this goes to show that anything is possible when you set your mind to it. I would also like to say thank you to, Dawn Torrens, @Torrenstp
for the support she has given me; you really have been awesome and still are!
also as always I can not forget sweet Charity Parkerson, @CharityParkeso. 


Charity was the first person that read my first ever chapters, and as soon as Charity read them, she could see the potential and the talent that was there and encouraged me to carry on and to never give up. These are just four special friends to me who have inspired me to create this wonderful story. I could go on thanking loads of authors for their support, but they all know who they and I certainly do!

I would also like to thank my readers for following me on my journey. You are all awesome thank you. I will keep everyone updated with my progress and all my links will follow as soon as everything is up and running.

  3. Gorgeous cover Kevin! Did you do it yourself or hire someone? I will definitely download to Kindle when Passion is published :) I have been meaning to download your original Louie series for some time now. Well done - I'm not sure where you've found the time, what with your full time job too. I'm not working and I haven't found time to add to my new manuscript since a month ago! You're inspiring. X

    1. Thank you Alice for the kind words :) Its a great story and you wont be disappointed in anyway ;) The cover I have done myself after ripping my hair out a few times, but I got there in the end :)You are right about time though, I live off 3-5 hours a sleep a night/morning, 5 hours is a lie in for me. I have kept this pattern up since writing just over 2 years ago, I don't think its healthy mind you, but my stories wont get written otherwise :)X
