At Just Stories you will find a showcase of my work as a fiction writer. My name is Kevin Tye and I have been
writing for nearly a quarter of a century, yeah, I know the old joke about haven't I got tired yet, but you
know, I haven't. The bulk of my work has been boring technical stuff, technical manuals, technical training
courses and the ilk. Yes, my name is Kevin and I am a Technical Author. I have been sober now ... Just
I began writing fiction a few years ago and I am still waiting to be "traditionally" published. As they say in
Never Never Land "You have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince." Well I have just about worn

publishing quality, that is all I have, rejection letters.
So on the advice of a friend I thought, what the hell. Let's see what we can do with self-publishing. I don't

There are enough sites out here in the wide internet to enable those who wish to get their names in print to do
so. In fact that is something of a conundrum. Which publishing service to use? Should I publish on the
Kindle? How about Kobo? Do I host the books on my own site and take payment for them myself? Choices,
In the end, I figured why not do them all, eventually. So hopefully, whatever your eBook poison, you should be able to get a copy of
my books. Explore the site, look at The Bookshelf and download the first bits of the books, use the Contact page to leave me a
message, but above all else, enjoy what you read. To paraphrase what they say at the end of those awful celebrity dance shows -
