Have Onion-Biting Pirate-Aliens Invaded? Virginia Author Pens Three New Books.
Kevin A. Kierstead, a Virginia-based fiction author, storms into the novel-writing business with three completed titles in paperback, Nook, and Kindle (e-book) forms.
Name of Alt is a story about an alien and his angry pet who are hiding on Earth, waiting for the right time to come out and meet humans, written entirely from a first-alien perspective.
The Lost Dialogues of Table 18 is his first humor novel and is based on actual conversations Kevin had with a recently-deceased “pirate,” regarding life’s tougher issues.
The Unbitten Onion is a collection of thirty-four fake news articles (modeled after the spoof newspaper, The Onion) meant to make for some belly-bouncing laughs even on the worst of days.
Says Tanya C. of Mathews about The Lost Dialogues of Table 18, “If you want a quick, fun read to put a smile on your face then this book is the one for you! It is downright hilarious and highly entertaining. It will have you laughing out loud. I laughed so hard my sides were hurting...”
All three books can be purchased now at Amazon.com, bn.com, and CreateSpace.com by searching the applicable site for the author’s full name (Kevin A. Kierstead); prices are $2.99 for all e-books, with paperbacks priced as follows: $8.99 each for The Lost Dialogues of Table 18 (103 pp) and The Unbitten Onion (125 pp), and $11.99 for Name of Alt (201 pp).
Kevin’s first book signing is expected to take place Saturday, March 26th, 2011, from noon until 2:00 p.m. at the Mathews County Memorial Library. There will be various freebies. He expects to have several more book signings in April, in Gloucester, Yorktown, and other surrounding areas.
