The third in this series, Drama Queens and Devilish Schemes, scored a Rainbow Award (judged by fans of queer fiction) for Best Gay Alternative Universe/Reality novel.

Strangely enough, hanging out the washing. Some of my best lines and plot twists come when I walk away from the keyboard and focus on something else.

The other advice which works is to shut your eyes and imagine that you're in a room with only a chair and a projector. You are watching the movie of your book. Let it unfold in front of you.

With my first novel, Drama Queens with Love Scenes, I found that the movie version was in 4:3 black and white. Go figure?(less)

After a few months, print it out in a new font, and read it right through. You will see where you can improve it, and you will see mistakes that will surprise you.(less)

Trying to encapsulate my novel in 100 words

I tried to court an agent. As regular readers of my blog know, I’ve been working on a manuscript titled The Midnight Man for four years. It’s quite polished, so I thought I’d use it as my calling card to seek representation. Many authors hate creating the synopsis that sits on the back cover their …

Morgan Wyatt Hi Kevin,
If you are wondering how well I liked Drama Queens and Love Scenes? Well, it was a victim of the FBI virus. It is something I hope you never get. It locks your machine, demands money, and wipes everything when you don't pay. I kid you not. I figure it might have been out the witchcraft searches I was doing for my paranoramal, plus the poison search for my suspense. LOL

My Kindle books stayed with Amazon, but everything else was lost. Would you mind sending it to me again. I have been traveling the last two weeks which has also put me behind the review curve. Thanks.


Carmel I'm super excited I ordered my copy of "Drama Queens With Love Scenes" today, can't wait for it to arrive, should be a fun read!!


Bubbles  Hunty Honest & Direct Opinions Thank you. I like the picture too it was a fun night. Thanks for the add

Yeah, dead people are so interesting. You can create a world from scratch.

Jay Bell Hey Kevin. Thanks for the friend invite and the kind words. Drama Queens with Love Scenes sounds cool! I wrote a book that takes place in the afterlife as well, but it probably won't be out for another year or so. You totally beat me to it! ;)

Rachel Haimowitz Hi Kevin! Thanks for the friend invite and the kind words about the Counterpoint cover art. Natheie does amazing work, and if ever you've got a couple hours and a moist towelette handy, I highly recommend checking out all his other stuff (nathie.deviantart.com); he'll blow you away :D


Mandapanda Thanks for the "friendvite" Kevin. Congrats on the new book!! From now on your friends will have to introduce you as "Kevin Klehr, Author"! It's got a great ring to it! :)

Kevin Klehr One book that is a must read if you're into gay coming of age novels is "Morse Code For Cats" by Tom Conyers - http://www.morsecodeforcats.com.au/in... - It's set in Melbourne and had me hooked from cover to cover.
