Q: Where is the best place to get Kevin's books?
A: For all of Kevin's books, click here!
Q: When are the Misplaced Mercenaries books coming out?
A: Book one of the Misplaced Mercenaries series, A Good Running Away, is releasing on Amazon Unlimited January 9, 2019. The current plan is for one book to release in the series every six months, and then at the end of three years, for the series to re-release everywhere else that sells books. This is some arcane publishery bullshit that makes sense to people who are not authors, but that we are more than happy to go along with.
Q: I loved the webcomic, and I understand that the Misplaced Mercenaries series is also humorous. Do these take place in the same universe?
A: The short answer is no. H.O.L.E. took place in a D&D game, while Misplaced is an all-new, bottom-up universe. It is intended to be funny, mostly because it is very difficult for Kevin to write any other way. Want a fantasy? It's gonna be funny. Want a romance? It's gonna be funny. Want an apocalyptic monster/horror tale about a tribe of desperate survivors trying to escape being eaten long enough to die of cancer?
That's gonna be extra funny.
Q: Will Kevin appear at my gaming/fantasy/writers/Bigfoot convention and talk about webcomics/writing/publishing/oversized shoes?
A: As many writers are, Kevin is whore for publicity. He will gladly discuss attending any convention, and if it's local to Jacksonville, Florida, will even arrange his own transportation. Sadly, Kevin has little knowledge of either Bigfoot or his shoes.
Q: How can I contact Kevin?
Q: I read Kevin is a gamer. Will he play with me?
A: Kevin is a gamer, but his table is usually pretty full. Still, if you meet him at a con, why not ask?
Q: The characters in his books believe in all sorts of gods, to all kinds of degrees. What do you believe?
A: Kevin is an atheist, but not one of those kinds that goes on about it and tries to make other people feel stupid about their choices. Those guys are kinda lame.
Q: How does Kevin feel about piracy and stealing books? All the cool kids are doing it, why shouldn't I?
A: The only difference between stealing an author's book online and swiping it from the Barnes and Noble's, is that you are much more likely to get away with it online. Now getting away with it doesn't make it any more moral; if you steal, you're a thief. Not a "sorta thief," but a real thief, who steals things from people. People who try to make a living selling those things. This is what we in the writing biz refer to as Not Cool.
Kevin does his best to keep his prices as low as possible, and has plans to engage in any e-book "borrowing" schemes that come up, in an effort to keep anyone from feeling the need to steal from him.
Stealing makes Hulk cry.
Q: Well that question was kind of a bummer. Will Kevin come drink a beer/smoke a joint with me while I mellow for a while?
A: Kevin used to be a real beer-hound, but then he got the diabetus. (He's doing fine, thank you.)
Since then, he has obtained a Medical Marijuana Card, but he really only uses it on his Weather Knee when the fronts blow through. He will be happy to watch you get drunk/stoned and bounce peanuts off of your forehead.
Q: Will you read my manuscript and tell me if it's any good?
A: No! (Smile.) Kevin has happily done beta-reads for friends or swapped ARC reads with other authors, but if he started reading unsolicited manuscripts, as much as he would want to help out, he would never have time to do anything else. You guys write a lot!
Q: Fantasy is okay, but my favorite is Star Wars. Would you ever write a shared-universe book?
A: There is some very fine work being done in shared-universe literature today. While there are no immediate plans for anything along those lines, it would be a great gig.
Q: I lurve your website! Can I have one?
A: Sure. Lena Shore is the site designer. She's great to work with, and really knows her stuff. (And she is slightly married to Kevin.)
Thanks for reading!
