A Conversation With Kevin Brennan, Part Two

This is Part 2 of Mark Paxson’s conversation with Kevin Brennan, author of the newly released (by himself) novel, Fascination. I’m reblogging this post because of something Mark says about Fascination: “In some respects, Fascination is a story that a reader who is looking for light entertainment could enjoy at the same time a reader who is looking for something deeper also could enjoy.” I’m reading Fascination now and, as with ALL of Kevin’s novels, there are layers and layers and layers to the story. If you’re into layers, then order a copy from Kevin and dig in. If you’re not into layers, then order a copy because you can race through with Clive and Sally and enjoy the ride. As for me, I’m digging in.

KingMidget's Ramblings

Part One is here.

MP. As the author of Fascination, is there something about the story that you particularly like?  Is there a part of the story, or an element of it, that you think you got particularly right?

KB. It’s not always easy to be super-objective about your own work, but in this book I like the overall tone most of all. I set out to write something in the mode of, say, Tom Robbins (without trying to imitate him, of course), but I wasn’t sure I could carry it all the way through a 300-page book. I hope readers think I succeeded!

I think the main thing I got right was telling a sprawling, convoluted, funny story that also gives the reader some interesting things to think about by the end. Ultimately, as the characters come to understand, the journey to heaven is heaven.

MP. It’s interesting…

Our Justice

One step is closer to publishing Our Justice. I am waiting for the paper proof so that I can finalize the Paper version. I have decided to put both the e-book and paper version on a pre-sell basis.(My first time doing so)  A pre-sell will give folks time to get the message and book a copy in advance. The actual ship date will be October 1st, and I will be hitting “publish” on the 12th of September. Most of my media support starts on October 1st and the blog tours anytime after the 12th.

Speaking of blog tours, I want to thank everyone who volunteered. I have confirmed all of you and the material will arrive the 6th of September.

As I promised, I’m sending this one more reminder. If you would like to help out, please send an e-mail to me at johnhowell (dot) wave (at) gmail.com.

Blurb your enthusiasm

Kevin Brennan knows how to blurb! Read on and then sign up for a copy of Brennan’s latest novel🙂

WHAT THE HELL

Cover cropFascination is a curious little book, and I wouldn’t want you to buy a copy without knowing what you’re getting yourself into. It’s part picaresque, part morality play, and it covers plenty of territory across our great land. Route 66 looks like a cul de sac compared to the voyage of our heroes, Sally and Clive.

Stay tuned for a sample of the book tomorrow, and you’ll be able to land your own personalized copy on Monday.

Meanwhile:

Fascination!

It’s a road picture (with pictures)…

It’s the novel you buy straight from the author …

It’s a novel about self-realization and vengeance …

It’s a novel about the pointless journey of a grieving young widow — Sally Pavlou — and a lovestruck private investigator — Clive Bridle — looking for the dead man who done Sally wrong …

It’s a novel about postponing the inevitable and rushing to…

Silence – OUT 30.7.16

I’m afraid to admit that I’ve neglected this young and very talented author for a while. Not intentionally, mind you, but the world, ah, the world … . I speak, of course, of J. S. Collyer. You should know her for the first two installments of her science fiction Orbit Series, Zero and Haven. If you don’t, then I recommend you correct that oversight … immediately. Her third and final installment will be available soon through Amazon: Silence. In fact, I believe you can pre-order at a discount. Go check it out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed🙂

Silence small

Silence, Book 3 in J S Collyer’s ‘Orbit Series’, out 30.7.16

Kaleb Hugo has been missing for a year. He disappeared without trace or explanation, but popular rumour is that he has abandoned his position and his family to join the revolutionist group Red Star, alleged to be gathering force in a new colony on Mars and set on a future ruled by a democratically-elected Orbit Alliance and not the militarised Service.

Ezekiel Webb, his former crewmate and best friend, has, on the face of it, taken little interest in Hugo’s fate, rumoured or otherwise. The two men have barely spoken in years and Webb has immersed himself in his new life in the Eclipse Division of the Service. He is captain of his own undercover unit and whilst the Service Commanders don’t always approve of his methods, his abilities cannot be questioned.

It is these abilities that the Special…
