You may remember a little while ago I reviewed a book called “Frankly Twisted”: The Lost Files by Kevin 11. “Frankly Twisted”: The Lost Files is the second book in the series which follows the crime fighters of the Brooklyn Police Department in the 23rd Precinct. I loved this new interesting take on the detective genre and the cinematic style of Kevin 11. I find it so inspiring the way that creators today take creative freedom not only of their work but also the publishing, distribution and marketing. “Frankly Twisted”: The Lost Files is published by indie book publishers Flowered Concrete and Kevin is doing a blog tour to offer a behind the scenes glimpse at this gritty world and a chance to get to know the characters a little better. I am thrilled to give you a glimpse of what Kevin has to say about Alvin Alvin (yep that’s his name).
Behind The Character:
For some reason, detective Alvin Alvin is still a mystery to me. For one, despite him being a really good cop and highly fashionable in style and appearance, there seems to be more beneath the surface that has yet to be uncovered. Many folks are probably wondering what on earth possessed me to name him Alvin Alvin.
For one, I thought it would be really funny to give him the same first and last name. Another reason as to why I named him this way is because I wanted to slightly trick readers into thinking that I had made a typo with his name.
However, when reading both Tales of the 23RD Precinct and as well as frankly TWISTED, readers can see that that is certainly not the case. Going forward, it will be interesting to see where exactly I take him as a character. For one thing, he will definitely have big shoes to fill due to the fact that he will be taking over as Captain of the 23rd precinct. Hopefully by then, we will get a better chance to see not only how he works and interacts with others, but also, go a bit in-depth within his personal life.
I would like to say thanks to Kevin for including Bernie and Books in his tour. You can check out his blog here where you can also find all the other guest post from the tour. “Frankly Twisted”: The Lost Files is available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble or via Flowered Concrete.
