"Fascinating Read." - Kat Yares (Author of Vengeance is Mine)
With a unique voice and writing style, Jeffrey Kosh weaves a fascinating story in Feeding the Urge. Feeding the Urge is a thought provoking novel that leaves the reader pondering what is truly good and what is absolute evil. This is an Indy author to watch.
"One To Watch." - Franklin E. Wales (Author of Deadheads: Evolution)
Kosh has the chops to be a player in the world of the written word. Florida Glades, Indian spiritualism, and enough darkness to bring it way up on the creep factor combined with some damn fine suspense, make this debut's author "One to watch!"

Jeffrey Kosh has a natural talent for spinning an entertaining, engaging story. Not only does he paint a picture with your mind's eye, but captures it's full attention!

These are my notes on the creation of the novel. For a synopsis read the product description above.

I often compare the creation of 'Feeding the Urge' to that of the Frankenstein's monster - the literary one, not that from the movies.
It began with a dream, an idea on creating something new, something different from mainstay Horror literature, something which simply was not there.
The dream became an obsession, and like that infamous 18th century scientist, I began delving into forbidden knowledge and maddening stuff. Sometimes, even allowed me a grisly laugh, while researching on morgues, causes of death, and instruments of pain.
Like Victor, I ventured into forlorn graveyards of human knowledge, unearthing the bodies of those who preceded me, studying their anatomy and complexities.
Next, came the meat and bones of the story. I spent whole nights penning down my manuscript, assembling and dissecting it again, always looking for perfection, yet achieving none.
Once, it appeared too different from what I had in mind; a wretched creature which disgusted me. At another time, it distanced so much from whom I intended the thing to be.
I could not allow.
So, I suppressed the thing with a pillow, and created a new head for it.
This head was Nemesis.
Since I do not want to spoil my novel for you, I'm not going to reveal who - or what - this Nemesis is.
Feeding the Urge received its first spark of life on the night of January 1st 2012.
Mary Shelley published her 'Modern Prometheus' in January the 1st 1818.
I was excited, because I'm in love with her masterpiece.
Unlike its literary analogue it began to talk immediately and is even able to enjoy a good conversation.
Yet, beware, because inside that large skull lays still an abnormal brain.
