About Kristopher Ivie

Kristopher Ivie began self-publishing his work in June of 2012. He is from a small town in Central Pennsylvania and began writing when he was in high school. After writing the poem “Yard Sale” in 2012 he realized that a large portion of his early work had been lost. This began a quest to preserve his existing work and to resume writing. The trend of music, photos, and videos going viral on the internet and social media sparked an interest in achieving the same success for writing. After searching for a suitable creative outlet he discovered Smashwords and compiled 3 collections of poetry (“The Bigger Picture”, “On the Verge of Life, Love, and Lyrics”, and “Words to Paint 1000 Pictures”). In addition to poetry, he began writing several science fiction novels and entering short fiction contests. His first short story is “Texting Death” which he published October 2012 in honor of Halloween.

Review by: Qhaddafy on Aug. 28, 2013 :
Great, but not perfect. Interesting idea (Death texting? WOW! Next, she'll have a Smashy account. Wait, that's a great idea, you're welcome to use it). Great plot, though I don't like its open-endedness. Believable, to certain extent. Proof-readed, still has minor typos though. No excesive violence, sexual scene, even swear-words are minimum!

Will be better if you care to expand it a bit, though. The plot is too complicated for a short-story. By expanding it, you'll have enough time for background and side stories, characters building, emotional changes (at first, some believed the messages were prank, right?), more details in important scenes, and others. But don't make it too long either, twice or thrice its current length is sufficient.

Depressing, I'd avoid it. The author has an odd idea of how computers and phones work.

I honestly thought I was reading something that would have been a good story line on Criminal Minds...the story kept me on the edge of my seat and my heart was racing from beginning to the end! If you like stories that "grab your attention" you will enjoy this book. Looking forward to reading more of Kris' work!!
