You Only Get One Shot by Kevin Kennedy is a short story that follows five characters. It is about what happens when one does the wrong thing, for the rightish reasons.


When you read a book from an author that you love, you read more by them.  Over time you feel like you know them.  If you ever get the chance to meet someone you feel close to, you want to talk to them, have them read your work, be friends.  I have been fortunate enough to not only be good friends with another book freak, but to meet some amazing authors that I keep in touch with online.


The other side of writing is when you are an author. You send your baby to a strange. Something you have worked on for months if not years to a publisher.  Not all stories are for everyone.  Most publishers are polite and let you know they don’t want it.  Others are sadly not as polite and tell you exactly what is wrong with it.  That can be disheartening.


When you have someone who is mentally unhinged and combine that with pain and the burning desire for revenge, you get “You only get one shot“.  I enjoyed this story a lot, it takes a while to get exactly what is going on/ Once you do, it will all click.  Be ready, because once it clicks, you can’t go back.
