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:

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.'
