About Ketch’s Book Nook

DSC_6339_RET_2Hi! I’m Kelsey Ketch, author, beta reader, and book reviewer. I live in North Carolina where I find a wealth of inspiration for my writing.

Ketch’s Book Nook (originally titled ‘Ketch Tavern’) was established on May 30th, 2010 as a place to post samples of my writing and gather others’ opinions. But over the years, it has become so much more. Through my posts, my readers can enjoy keeping up with my latest works-in-progress and travels, view summaries of completed manuscripts, read book reviews, enter awesome giveaways, and check out the latest book trailers. So be sure to follow and if you would like to talk, don’t hesitate to contact me:

  1. Stopped by on the PJV F& F. I used to docent a 1750 house in Portland Maine – the Tate House. Alas, museum politics drove me away and to the solace of books.
    Stop by my blog where I rarely read anything from that period since if someone wrote PNR back in the day they would have been burned at the stake.

    I love your blog and I think it is cool that you were influenced by a historic pub in Oxford. Congratulations on a being the ‘tavern keeper’ for a full year!

  6. Hi Kelsey
    I have just looked at your blog for the first time. Very impressed.
    I found your review of Come What May insightful and interesting. Your disappointment with book two highlighted the one of the pitfalls for authors when writing a series – book 2 has to develop the characters in a way that is satisfying for the reader.
    I recently read (Jonathon Gunson, 10 Simple Strategies for Bestseller Success) comments on the difference for a writer in creating a series or a serial. According to him a series is several books with the same character who never changes but goes through different adventures (Bond 007) while a serial is several books in which the same character goes and develops and gets older in each book while facing challenges and having adventures (Harry Potter). Writers should take this into account as I suspect it would definitely change the expectations of the reader.
    I look forward to visiting your blog again
