Kyle Michel Sullivan is a writer and self-involved artist out to change the world until it changes him...as has already happened in far too many ways. He has lived in London, Los Angeles, San Antonio, El Paso, Kansas City, Honolulu, Austin, Houston, and now resides in Buffalo, NY.

He has won multiple awards for his screenplays and has all manner of books available -- from sunshine and light ("David Martin") to cold and dark ("How To Rape A Straight Guy", which has been banned a couple of times) to flat out crazy ("The Lyons' Den) to mainstream ("The Alice '65").

He uses Tolstoy as his guide, and tries to build characters as vivid and real as possible. He has a lot of fun doing it mixed with angst, anger, and amazement ... but that's the lot o

First run of A65 read right...

I got the audio for my version of the beginning of The Alice '65 and it sounds 1000 times better than that guy who was handed the pages and told to read. Carrie Armstrong did it and it sounds a lot more polished. She skips words here and there, and her British ebbs and flows when speaking the dialogue, but those are minor issues that can easily be corrected. I think. Guess I'll find out.

How to Rape a Straight Guy by Kyle Michel Sullivan
"I really don't know how I felt about this book, overall. I mean, 75% of the time I was too revolted and disturbed with the portrayal of rape in this book: it is brutal, unapologetic, and absolutely a exhibition of power/ownership. And, this is int..." Read more of this review »

Helle "Thanks for the likes on my blog, Helle. Hope you're doing well... "

Sorry for the late reply, I was not well in two days because of migraine and was afraid of having to cancel my appointment with a physiotherapist, as this helps my pain. My biological medicine makes me painless and the weather does not have such an impact on the pain, the ones I get at night.

I hope you get back around your obstacles and it will team work with you again, so I can read your story Kyle *fingers crossed* and good luck.

Have a great weekend and happy reading! Hugs

Kyle Sullivan Seen this admission from Amazon? They admit to hurting authors and their customers in an attempt to force the 5th largest publisher in the world agree to their terms.

www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2014/05/...

And what's their attitude? "You don't like it? Buy the book elsewhere."

Kyle Sullivan Been away from my page for too long, thanks to family turmoil and crap about my books and general laziness.

FYI -- I'm having "How To Rape A Straight Guy", "Porno Manifesto", and both volumes of "Rape In Holding Cell 6" withdrawn from circulation. I plan to reintroduce them, next year, under my own banner and as far away from Amazon as I can get. "Bobby Carapisi" will also be reissued in a better format.

On top of this, I need to finish a mystery I'm working on that's been taking too long...and get back to work on a novel set in Northern Ireland between 1966 and 1981.

And I will read more. I'm in the middle of "The Dubliner" series of stories by James Joyce. Lovely vignettes in an amazing voice.

Guess these are my New Year's Resolutions.

Kyle Sullivan Word to one and all -- Amazon's on a censorship tear, again. They're dropping books from Kindle that might depict rape, S&M, and incest in positive terms.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-...

"How To Rape A Straight Guy" is not available in Kindle, in the US, and not at all in the UK. It seems they're focused on the little guys -- small publishing houses and self-published works -- so if you can't find a book you want, that's probably why.

But "50 Shades of Crap" (the rip-off of "9 1/2 Weeks") is still up and running. Of course.
