Well, here we are. I'm ready to go directly to the publishing phase, but once again the busy editors at Kindle Scout are taking their time releasing the title back to me. Since we are approaching the 10th day of 15, I expect to hear by the end of the week at the latest.
Meanwhile I wanted to let you all know that I've decided to throw in a couple of days of free download to thank those who have nominated Kyle Harrison Movie Star, and to encourage anyone not familiar with my writing to have a look. Usually I never give away my books, but it seemed like the thing to do as this title has received so many page views during the campaign.
I'll publish the free days here as soon as I know when that will be. Comments, feedback and, especially, Amazon and Goodreads reviews would make my day, so I hope the sheer brilliance of the writing will motivate some of you to post a few lines (brilliance is, of course, in the eye of the beholder and, if you think it's brilliant, I will certainly be beholding!)
Kyle Harrison is not a typical romcom. There is romance, there is humour (at least I hope you will find some amusement in the story), but there is also a good dose of social commentary based on my own experiences and observations from many years ago. With the recent power abuse scandal rocking the very core of the Hollywood apple, I find myself horrified to discover that the old gossip about the "casting couch" culture is not only accurate, but that it reveals a rotten core a thousand times more disgusting than I could imagine.
In the series "Kyle in Hollywood" my hero acts, risking his career and his freedom, whenever he is aware of sexual abuse. One can only wish that more real people had done the same when the situation called for affirmative action, instead of voicing shock and surprise (and, even worse, regret) decades after the fact.
So, if you feel like a break from the depressing reality, let Kyle's adventures entertain you with a more optimistic take on the fascinating world of movie making. Books 1 and 2 are already published, and I'm busy working on Book 3, with a tentative release date of early next year, if not sooner.
