    Author Update – Christmas spirit and zombie outbreaks

    Hello, a little update on my writing today. I have been struggling to focus as much on my Christmas short story collection recently. Maybe because we don’t have any decorations up yet. Either way, I’m not forcing it and I’m unsure whether they will be released this year or next year as a result. In other news, it has allowed me to play around with some other ideas I’ve had for novels for next year and has allowed me to make a start on two of these. One of which is a Post Apocalyptic zombie themed story, I’m very excited about writing something like this as I love zombies and so far I’m…

    What are you most afraid of?

    Hello, in light of recent Halloween celebrations and the end of October, I decided now would be a good time to post this entry. As you may already know I’m a self-published writer with Amazon Kindle (information can be found in the Ebooks section of the website), well my main focus is Horror/Thriller. I enjoy horror films and psychological thrillers. Books of this genre scare the heck out of me. So what I would like to know is what are you most afraid of? I really want to improve on the scare factor in my writing. Have you ever read anything that has embedded in your brain? Ever seen anything that you…

    Author update – Christmas collection

    Hello, I’ve not forgotten about you all I promise. Things are crazy getting these short stories ready for the Christmas collection. *fingers crossed* I’m going to have enough time to put it together. My brother is stopping over for a few days at the end of the week which will slow progress down but I’m super excited about having him over 🙂 For now, here’s a sneak peek of the current ideas I’m working on. If you don’t already follow my Author Instagram account @kimberleyjacksonbooks for pictures like this or my personal account @wally.jay for everyday beauty. What do you think of the ideas?

    The writer’s life for me

    Hello, today I’ve had the house to myself whilst my husband has been at Alton Towers with a friend so I’ve been doing a lot of writing and have ended up creating ideas for 10 different short stories all with the topic of Christmas in mind. I’m hoping this will be released in time for Christmas this year as a collection which is very exciting. On the side, I’m also working on a guide for new publishers with hints and tips and a Vegan recipe book. Next year I will be releasing more short stories and working on a couple of other novels. Lot’s of things to look out for…

    Author update – Research, HMRC and progress

    Hello, I seem to be having a few problems on Nook publishing so we may not put the books on there. Also, I feel publishing on Kindle alone may be a better option. I will keep you all updated on any decisions made. As for now, all 3 are available on Kobo and Kindle. This morning I have started the process of registering as self-employed and sorting taxes out. Lots of research and forms involved. If anyone has a step by step guide that would be appreciated 🙂 Today I’m continuing work on another short story which will later be released as a collection with the other two that are…
