Kindle readers can help Tullamore man publish book thumbnailPaul Kilmartin from Tullamore is seeking to have his first book published on Kindle.

SECRET of The Lost Key is the title of a Kindle book written by Tullamore man Paul Kilmartin.

Currently the first few chapters are available to readers on Kindle Scout. If people like what they read, Paul is asking that they nominate him and this will allow the book move on to the next phase.

In other words, whether Kindle will publish the book is down to the reader. The book can be nominated by logging onto kindlescout.com, entering Secret of The Lost Key in the search box and clicking on 'Nominate me'.

The blurb for 'Secret of The Lost Key' describes the story as ''two young boys on a perilous journey. An underworld gangster desperate for some leverage.

A mother, fierce and searching. From the North East of England, to the Giza Plateau in Cairo, Secret of The Lost Key, tells the story of what happens when one boy decides to chase a dream, bringing his little brother alongside and leaving his frenetic mother chasing them across Europe. A race against time to find the treasure, and reunite the family.''

Paul says he writes for the pure love of it. ''From gaining that precious idea and then letting it breathe, to seeing where it takes me. I carry my characters with me, and while I am writing, I certainly feel very attached to them. My background is in healthcare in Ireland.''

Paul is a native of Rahan road in Tullamore but now lives and works in Dublin.
