KEVIN M. WEEKS
The Kevin M. Weeks Story
Kevin M. Weeks has respectfully entered the literary world like a blazing lightening storm no one ever saw arriving on the cusp of the millennium, and with a new groundbreaking urban book entitled, The Streetlife Series with an easy breezy intriguing sub title questioning your reader from 19-99, "Is it Murder or Is It Suicide?"
Responsibly labeled with an "Explicit content" label atop an animated book cover that has defied changing trends for sexy models on covers and returned urban street lit to its beautiful elements of creative and artistic expression reminiscent of the aura of the late Donald Goines, Kevin has has humbly created a story about a character named Teco Jackson. Have you met him or rather have you read The Street Life Series?
Call it a hook or a momentous ultra-magnetic marketing heist only because it has received an overwhelming avalanche of support from the most quality literary and media personalities on the planet as evident from his website, Kevin didn't steal, step on, intimidate, bully or demand respect as an urban author, nor toted his impesario as a real life convict behind bars, but worked hard to investigate and research a site called www.Disilgold.com, "a little bit of literary heaven on earth" and actually contacted Disilgold Soul to request referrals for entities to promote his book. We simply referred him to a business directory link page, and would you believe the next time we heard from Kevin M. Weeks, he was literally everywhere! We downloaded every pivotal step to document this dynamic author's tenacity and dedication. If you think an overnight success story can't happen to you, I want you to meet Kevin M. Weeks.
People have been asking DisilgoldSOUL if we knew about Kevin's situation and on this day we now reveal the answer, "YES!" We're not here to decide Kevin's early probation from jail to return as a law abiding citizen and resurge his life as an established author with film deals and television deals contacting him. He's not quick to announce things until they happen.
"Now his situation is pretty similar to another author who defended himself and got locked up for 15 years, but what is different from Kevin is that he is a victim of circumstance and simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time." As a former psychoanalyst, you can tell certain things are honest.
Even an outside literary team decided to take on his plight and aspirations on becoming America's next top grossing urban author, but as much as I liked his book, I was reluctant to release the review right away, but I went with my gut instinct.
Here it is: http://www.thestreetlifeseries.com/pdf/KevinMWeeksExclusive_012007.pdf . I had a conversation with James Lisbon over Kevin M. Weeks books and he admitted he would have never figured out that Kevin wrote the book on the mental grade level of his main character and with simplicity so any reader could understand it... A formula that has proven successful in reaching his audience who happen to be high execs in high places, but appreciate a story that is well written without a plethora of transitional thesaurus words that spells amateur.
The simplicity formula is catching on with many urban writers, but remember you have to grow with your audience's taste in literature. So now Kevin's back with another book, but this time, he's adding a plot a little more intricate. It's almost as if like a chef, he knows how much of an ingredient to flavor his recipe of success. In fact, The Street Life Series garned a Mosaic Books bestseller title this year and that is major.
So what is the literary world to do with this master of urban lit, but read the man's books and pass on the news because the word is out, Kevin M. Weeks is the YGA Urban Fiction Author of the Year. Visit his site at www.TheStreetlifeseries.com and the book that started it all.
He's back! A Disilgold SOUL 5 STAR Reviewed Book!
