My New Release: Exciting News! #amwriting #romance #amreading

coming-soon-1898936_1280

Afternoon all,

It’s dark already and it is only 6:00p.m London time, autumn has truly set in. So, you probably remember I wrote a story for a anthology called Code Redhead- A Serial Novel,  with thirteen other great authors. My old publisher donated the sales revenue to charity for a year, I was thrilled to use my passion to write to help a charity cause and raise money for  cancer, this was in 2016 … remember? Good.  Well I checked my contact and it has expired, I’ve decided not to republish my work as a standalone under them, I now I have my rights back over my work. So what does this mean?… Instead  I will revamp this story a bit then it will be book #1 of another romance series I have in mind. e.g. my new release! As well as my  Romance Set In Paradise series, I want to write a some romance novellas set in cities around the world… more like ‘sin in the city’ to be exact,these stories will be a little steamy. 🙂

I was going to send my work out on query to other publishers and agents, then after some thought I realised  as it has already been published once (and I don’t plan to re-write the whole story I rather like it as it is, I’ll just expand it as the word limit all authors had for the anthology was only 13,000… tiny!) Most publishers won’t republish in this case, as some of it has already been published once… never mind I’m happy to do my own thing! This one will be a self-publish to kick off the series.

Right now, I looking for Beta Readers to add to my list I already have. I wish to send out a draft of this short steamy novella over the next few weeks, once I’ve combed over it, Beta Reader feedback  would be great. If you’d like to Beta Read  a free copy of book #1 of my ‘Sin in The City’ romance series then contact me here.    Send me  an email via ‘contact Kim’ and let me know. I am not a  touchy writer, ( which you probably know already if you have followed me for some time). I don’t need praise I need some honest feedback even if it’s “Kim this is shit… because.” I have thick skin,  so don’t think I want praise, I want honest feedback to better the reading experience, based on  your reading experience of the draft before publishing. That said if your feedback is ” Kim this is great,” then I’ll dust off my shoulders,  do a happy dance and continue to spin some sinful romance for this series.

Thank you! I’d love some help 🙂

I’ve Landed A Job As A Magazine Editor… I’m Looking For Writers For Paid Work!! #amwriting #writerslife

If you’ve been connected with me for a while, you’ll know how much I believe in The Universe, fate and how us humans are supported by some unknown force. Earlier this month I said to myself, (and Didi) for that matter, how much I’d love to get back into magazine writing. I miss it,I used to contribute a few articles to a book, beauty and fashion section a while back. I also wrote about this kinda dream you could say, in my own journal this month.

Over the last twenty four hours the opportunity found me! The founder of the magazine was looking for an editor to take over, he connected with me on Facebook. What a surprise to land not only  paid writing work outside of blogging and novel writing ,but to be asked to be the actual chief editor. Madness… I can’t believe it myself, anyway, I signed a contact and I’m about to launch this baby with a team of warriors and talented writers! See the flyer below if you are interested get in contact.

The only thing I ask is be yourself, but be damn good when writing work to submit for publication. I’ve renamed the magazine, and I plan on moving it in a new direction for a new bigger, more diverse readership.

The Suspenseful Collection: Volume One

TaeVon‘s review

Jul 29, 2017
really liked it
Read from July 28 to 29, 2017 , read count: 1

I didn’t think a collection of short stories could flow so naturally between two authors, but Didi Oviatt and Kim Knight did just that.

I rated each short story on how much I would like for it to be written as a complete novel. Here’s my tally below that rounded to 4.25/5:

1. It Was The First Time I Killed A Man = 5 Stars (Think this may need more stars)
2. When He Ran His Hands Up My Thighs I… = 3.5 (I couldn’t get with the lovey dovey romance)
3. The Entrance To The Tunnel Is His Only Way Out = 4 (Ending was very unfortunate, but I had to laugh at what happened)
4. Every Time I Hear That Voice From My Basement = 4.5 (I need to know the ending’s outcome)
5. Femme Fatale = 5 (Badass Russian woman as MC; no further comment)
6. The Ones Who Live At The Bottom Of The Ocean, Come To The Surface = 5 (Just needs to continue)
6. Guilty As Charged, In Self-Defence. = 5+ (Let’s just say 7; that story was amazing)
7. It’s A Man’s Man’s World = 5 (Very emotional, easy to tear up even in that short of time)
