Book One and Two

Book One and Two

Once again I have survived another Christmas working in the retail Merchandising biz and even got some writing done.
Finished work now until the 27th,book 3 is calling, on to chapter 2.
It’s been a good year, negotiating the Ebook self pubing world and I want to say thank you to all the people who have encouraged me and supported my writing over the last year. You know who you are.
Book One And Book Two of The Kasdtien Cycle are out in the world, and the first reviews have been full of praise.
To My writerly friends, thank you for your wisdom, encouragement and support, you have been indispensable. To my readers, thank you because every time you read the words the will to write on grows stronger.
And a special thanks to my family, who have the odd life of living with this Part Time Lunatic.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and peace to all for the new year.
Stay safe people, the world needs you all.

Thank you S. Newton, whoever you are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of this world, December 16, 2012

I’ve read hundreds of free books through my kindle and found many terrible books. This is not one of those books. I was surprised and pleased with how well this book is written. The characters are well developed and the story is excellent. I don’t write reviews often, but this book deserves my time to sing its praises. A lot of writers are afraid to show teenagers that have real, believable romance between them. It’s usually a lot of unromantic crap. When I was a teen, my relationships were very mature and I’m glad to see someone write some feeling into a novel that doesn’t seem like kindergarten trash. Fantastic read, the second one is just as good if not better. I can’t wait to see Mark get serious with his power in the third book.

Its almost like you get a solid book two and a half of another novel. The author actually builds a serious climax in the middle and keeps going. Very refreshing change from books that waste 300 pages of filler just to build to the weak climax. This book keeps itself on track and doesn’t waste time or lose focus. A must read.


So fired up please continue to spread the word, a poor starving author needs to eat you know,

Thanks again,

Chris K

Counting Down to The Immortal Darkness release

3 hours to go. Am conversing on twitter using #TheImmortalDarkness in the lead up to Book 2’s launch on my 48th Birthday, it seemed appropriate as it was 12 mths ago that I put up the first half of the first book for general appraisal. The first book, available free from all good EBook outlets, has done alright, with 1500 downloads since Parallel was published. It’s been a busy year. Image
