Kevin Klehr (goodreadscomkevink) | 11 comments Hi Everyone,

I'm about to start a series of blogs centred around re-imagining the

afterlife, inviting writers, poets, artists and film-makers to


From the authors, I'm either after a couple of paragraphs, a whole

short story or a clever blog post. Just picture yourself in the

Afterlife and go from there.

Perhaps your idea centres around sunflower fields and groovy people on

a higher plane. Maybe you're dining with Zues and other old gods. Or

you've popped in for a visit to catch up with someone no longer of

this mortal world.

Of course, links and information about my contributors would be added

to their content. And I'd promote on Twitter and FB posts.

If you're interested, please either private message me, or contact me

via email at

I think together we could come up with a fascinating series.

Kevin Klehr (goodreadscomkevink) | 11 comments Hi guys. I'm still looking for material before I start publishing what I have already.

Please note that I'm trying to keep these blogs upbeat. I've already been given two works on suicide, which is not really what I'm after.

Let's get fun and light-hearted.

Kevin Klehr (goodreadscomkevink) | 11 comments Hi everyone,

Several wonderful writers have added my blog series on Re-imagining the Afterlife.

Carrie F Shepherd takes us into the magical world of her novels with her contribution.

James Stafford has written a beautiful ghost story.

Jan Krause Greene takes us into the mysticism of Earth Girl.

Jeffrey Ballam imagines his perfect Afterlife.

Esther Qui takes us to her dark sci-fi imagination.

And Simon Hugh Wheeler adds his usual comic twist to the Hereafter.

Take a look by clicking here , and feel free to contribute to this series.

No, I'm not a writer, I scribble poems but I'm no good. It's a book I read. Is this forum for writers only? Sorry, I didn't know.

It's The Road to London it's about a guy who jumps out of a window, then it goes back to his life story and how he escapes in dreams and then in the end it's all in another world but he's happy.

You can ask the writer to contribute to your blog, the book's a Booker Prize entry, so, you never know...

Kevin Klehr (goodreadscomkevink) | 11 comments Thanks A for the info and no, it's not just a forum for writers.

Ah, ok Kevin. Because I had not read properly so I wasn't sure.
