New Release Soon ?!?!

Alright so I’ve been working on a new release for a short bit, this is non poetry related but I’m not going to go into what this release is about right now, I will when I release it.. I feel that the release is done, it’s kind of a personal thing… Anyways so what’s holding it up you ask ? … Normally I submit everything in simple text format and let my distributor (smashwords) convert that to everyway possible, well the last two books I tried to release I ran into a few issues when converting to the lovely epub format. For some reason my stuff doesn’t “clear customs” I guess that’s the best way to put it. One of the books I had trouble getting out was “Kennie’s Guide To The Galaxy” so I recently created it in epub format and sent it to my distributor, I can’t say if this will make my life easier or more complicated but it’s something I’m going to try if things go without problems them it very well will make my life more easier and that’s currently what I’m looking for and that will be how I will be releasing my stuff from now on through my distributor, but I know this can completely fuck up a few people since I don’t know if it will be put out in different formats or not.. I have two books I want to put out with Smashwords before I get to my non poetry release…

Why two books ? that’s a great question the long and the skinny of it is this.. Kennie’s Guide To The Galaxy was once put out through smashwords but then I added to it and that’s where I ran into problems so that’s the first thing I’ll be putting out in epub format to see how easy it gets to go through all the proper channels before it gets sent out for distribution however the numbers on the book for downloading won’t really reflect anything because unless it’s a huge uptick I won’t really know if anyone will read it or not. So my second book that I’m putting out with smashwords called “Internal Screams” which I did put out before with another distributor but decided to pull it and go back to smashwords, that will be the true test of how many potential reads I will get by using the epub format, I know the average read count I get when I do everything in just plain text format so I want to make sure this will be the best format for me or am I making a big mistake ?

So that’s the long and the skinny of it in general and I will keep you all informed about how everything goes for my two releases before I get to my non poetry release..

While I’m on that subject and I’m sure many of you want to know what the deal is and what am I writing about now.. let me explain… My non poetry release is called “Seeking A Friend”
The idea to write it kinda came from a movie called “Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World”.. where one guy starts looking for a friend to spend the rest of his life with until the world ends since in the movie I believe it said the world would end in about three weeks, so the pressure is on for him to find this friend… Well I’ve always had trouble making friends and seeing how certain things I write have touched various of my readers I wanted to some what share my story of how difficult it has been for me making friends even when I’m young and how it’s kind of drilled into you when your young that it’s importance to make friends and how at times you go on these “play dates” etc… So I just wanted to write this book to show people that not everyone finds it easy to make friends and I even do the thing of comparing myself to my friends on facebook when I state…. I think the line was “If you look at my facebook account I have 32 friends where as all my friends have 100+” Sadly the 32 friends I have on facebook I believe 90% of them are family..

So there you go a little bit of a glimpse into what will be coming out in the near future for me, I have no idea when it will be coming out but hopefully at some point in time, but I will keep you all posted on that…

Nothing Could Have Saved Me

So we got hit with a storm on Friday, it knocked the power out for about an hour but before the power went out we lost our phone line which ultimately lead to us loosing our internet as well.. We lost the internet around 4pm… It didn’t come on until sometime Sunday which was roughly 36 hours later.

Needless to say it wasn’t fun, you don’t realize how much you use the internet until it’s gone then when it is gone and you realize how much of your life revolved around it.

Anyways Friday night I had trouble sleeping, so I got on the computer because I didn’t know what else to do and with the wind blowing and I could hear it in the basement.
So I chose to do some writing, and I sat here and wrote and I have a full release ready of stuff I wrote in one night the title of the release is: “Nothing Could Have Saved Me”

Right now I don’t have a cover created nor do I even have a release date.

But I wanted to mention about the writing because I know it’s been a few days since I have done a post.

Hopefully I’ll get a cover done sooner than later, today I’m just trying to finish up things that I was working on Friday when we lost the internet.

A Big Change, Coming Soon

I remember saying in a previous blog post that a bunch of changes for me are happening this year, the lovely year of 2018.

Ok so first things first a brief history of myself, I started to write under the name Kennie Kayoz back in 2002, I chose the name because I thought it would suit me because I wrote rather violent back in the day. I also spent a lot of time listening to violent music, well here we are in 2018 and a lot about me has changed. My music tastes has changed, so much so that if someone said that to me back in 2000 or 2002 that my music tastes will change, I would tell them “your fucking crazy”.. But it turns out that it’s true.

So for my next big change which will be happening between now and march is I’m changing the name I use to write under, now what you may not know is that my first name actually is Ken (or some variant of Kennie, Kenny, Kenneth… you get the idea) so that part won’t be changing, however the name Kayoz is definitely being dropped and same with Coyotes Publishing, I’ve had that going since 2002 and it’s about time that I make some changes. I’m not the same man I once was in 2002, back in 2002 I use to be in a very very dark place. I’m happy to say that I’m no longer in that place anymore, I’ve been coming to terms with many things. I’m just going to focus on myself, for some reason when I first started I also decided to write under various names which I admit right now it’s kinda embarrassing and I try not to talk about it and for the most part I hide it and call them “voices in my head” because it was and still is rather embarrassing to think about and to even talk about. I don’t know what I was thinking at the time of writing under other names, but it happened and I haven’t wrote as anyone else since September 2016.

I’ve already started to make changes to get things ready. Once I get things ready and have a site up I’ll be sure to post it here so if anyone of you choose to continue to follow me you may do just that.
