Indie Author Friday: Kevin Cooper #IndieAuthor #ShortStories #ContemporaryFiction

Kevin Cooper is well-known to many of us because, in addition to being an indie author, he’s also a wonderful supporter of other indies on his blog.  If you’re a fan of short stories, as Kevin says – “There’s something for everyone in Caboodle and The Whole Kit!”

Caboodle & The Whole Kit is filled with relaxing episodes of life, family, love & romance, faith, and even the odd, inadvertent run-ins with some quite unsavoury characters.

The wonderful collection of short stories, poetry, and songs has been grouped together to bring a variety of tales, some of which are based upon true events, people can easily relate to.

The whole kit is designed to ignite a mixture of emotions to bring smile, laughter, and moisture to the eyes.

There is something for everyone in Caboodle & The Whole Kit!

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

Switch your degree to Writing or English and work hard to get a publishing contract.

What do you love most about the writing process?

Becoming completely consumed while writing… I love that feeling.

What do you do to get book reviews?

I talk about my books on my blog and sometimes offer free promotions through Amazon. I also read a lot of other author’s books and write honest reviews for them…This tends to attract readers to my own works sometimes.

What’s your favorite kind of cookie and why?

The jammie dodger ‘cause it’s a jammie bugger!

A penguin walks through the door wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?

Hola senor, tienes hielo para mi margarita? Vine for el sol, pero echo de menos for hielo ya.

Book you’d want with you if you were stranded on a desert island?

Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. It’s one of the greatest stories ever written and would serve me well.

    I feel so honoured to be presented in such an attractive way on your blog, Teri. Thank you so very much for having me. Will reblog this sometime over the weekend. 😀❤


    1. How wonderful to see Kev here! I’m totally jealous of his command of Spanish (I know he spent several years learning it first hand through immersion). I could read about 50% of his penguin answer, but had to translate the rest online. Caboodle and the Whole Kit is a fun read (leave it to Kev to come up with a clever title like that). Delighted to see him featured here n another friend’s blog. Happy Friday to both of you!

  2. Thanks for this interview. I love Caboodle and the Whole Kit and have loaned it to friends. It was one of the books I requested for Christmas. His visits/interviews with literary characters are genius.
