Beatsploitation Launch


The launch took place last night at Hodges Figgis and it was a packed crowd! Thanks to everyone who came – it was great fun. Writer Seán O'Reilly started off the evening by introducing author Kevin Curran and was delighted to have seen the novel grow from a young kid into a fully functioning adult! 

You can view all of the photos from last night's launch on our Facebook page. There are a few teasers below for your viewing pleasure...




Drawing from his own experiences and history, Kevin was inspired to write his debut novel, Beatsploitation. A young teacher with a passion for creating music is on the search to find the perfect sound to launch his band into stardom. He comes across an African student who has a unique talent of creating beats and thinks this is just what is needed. Watch the promotional video for the book here: http://bit.ly/12Zcma3

Kevin Curran was one of the winners of the Irish Writers' Centre Novel Fair in 2012 and his debut novel is already getting great reviews. Check out this excerpt from a review by Emma Walsh: 

'This debut novel is a fresh, energetic, and powerful depiction of a changed society. Modern Ireland is portrayed at times in ways that is uncomfortable to witness but with vigour and a rawness that captures the changed energy of our nation.'
