FIX
An Untold Story of Obsession, Seduction, Addiction & Despair
by Kevin Luke




As a college dropout and part-time restaurant worker in downtown Toronto, Kevin is stuck in a rut. He wanders the city aimlessly and lives a solitary life while his mental health steadily declines. After reconnecting with an old college crush, he gets strung along by her once again while simultaneously getting initiated into an underground group of pickup artists promising him a remedy for his romantic frustration. Kevin comes out of his shell for what feels like the first time, giving up self-control to his newfound identity. He meets new people, learns how to seduce women, and lives what appears to be an exciting, City Boy life. That is until this emotionally confusing process stimulates a thoroughly destructive addictive personality.

FIX: An Untold Story of Obsession, Seduction, Addiction, & Despair is the memoir of author Kevin Luke’s time spiraling into self-destruction through ruminating on feelings of anxiety, guilt, and suicidal ideation, all while managing his high-functioning mania.

Sourced from old journal entries and audio recordings left as streams of consciousness meant only for himself, Kevin wrote this book during a cathartic frenzy amid his darkest depressive episode experienced in years. A rare insight into the untreated bipolar mind, readers now get a voyeuristic glimpse into the author’s scattered quest for self-improvement.


Kevin Luke is the Founder and CEO of TBD Creative House in Toronto, where they help independent authors, filmmakers, and entrepreneurs distribute their ideas into the marketplace. Kevin hopes his story will serve as a cautionary tale for people caught up in the chase of the high life, attempting to fill the void with any deceptively tempting fix.

Now dedicated to a professional ethos of optimizing leverage in creative collaboration, Kevin offers the little journey charted in these pages as a raw peek into the origin story of today’s freshly empowered Kevin Luke.

Since writing this book, and upon resolving his mental health issues with the help of psychedelics, Kevin has launched Sweeter Plans, a campaign advocating for the availability of psychedelic mental health treatment.
