"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!"

From the Author
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.

You will find yourself both loving and hating main character Dr. Axel J. Hyde - a true Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. On one hand this strange doctor works for good, the other hand you will have to decide for yourself.
Cheri Ridge, the young, beautiful and deadly American Indian keeps the reader intrigued thoughout the novel with her lust for revengence and her other-worldly adventures during the dreamtime.
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.
Author Kosh knows how to reach inside his characters and pull their internal selves out into the open. What he does with Axel Hyde, and with Cheri, is incredible. Mr. Kosh juggles a large character set, and manages to delineate each one, mixing first person point of view (Axel Hyde) with third-person for other characters. Still, the story runs smoothly because the reader is enrapt with the action and with the characters' plights.
18+ for graphic violence, sexual situations, and occasional language.
Feeding the Urge
This book does have some very adult situations and it does have some very taboo subject matter that a lot of people my want to turn away from the book but I can assure you that this book is very well thought out and written in a way that some of the subject matter is never to overwhelming. The characters are so well written that it is very easy for them to become real in your mind. You are able to feel the pain and hate and fear of each and everyone of them and that is what made this book so amazing for me.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a good captivating read and as much as you wouldn't think it being in a book like this, there is a bit of romance and a hot and steamy part.
The overall vibe I got was what an amazing HBO series this would make. Ironic really as the book opens with a quote from "Bad Things" by Jace Everett (The theme song to HBO's TRUE BLOOD)
Florida Glades, Indian spiritualism, demonic possession 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!"
Fair warning, it's not for the kiddies or faint of heart, there are some real sharp objects between these covers!
