Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
One thing that really warms my cockles is when a review of one of my books turns up out of the blue. These days it doesn’t happen very often, but when it does: hot cockles. This weekend two new reviews of Occasional Soulmates appeared, both by readers completely unknown to me. I love when that happens!
From the first: “This book, not really a romance novel, was very profound…. To think that the author of this book is a man, he did a pretty good job thinking like a woman.”
And from the second: “By the title and cover I thought I was going to read ‘chick lit,’ so I was confused by the main character’s voice at first. She is so ‘real’ and a realist, which is often not found in chick lit. Then I realized that the author is male, so I wondered if he was spoofing chick lit. I continued to read because the character drew me into her life as a doctor, a daughter, a sister and a lonely woman looking for love. I kept on waiting for ‘fluff’ but as the story grew, so did the characters’ interior flaws, their pain and losses, and their difficulties in driving through life’s windy roads. By the middle of this book, I was in love – with the author’s writing, with his characters (even if they made me mad) and with the idea that writing doesn’t have to fit a particular genre. Five stars indeed. And I look forward to reading more books by Kevin Brannan [sic].”
