And happy Easter, I have come across a lot of talented authors and unpublished authors over the last year. I believe in promoting yourself as well as authors, if you’re an author reading this would you like a spot light for your book or interview on my author site?? There’s no catch I promise. Let me know and I’ll share it. This is just part of a new direction I’m taking my author site in, I’ve done a few author interviews, personal book reviews and shared new release news for other authors it will now be a permanent feature on kimknight.com.
Another direction I’ll be moving in as well is sharing (more) writing and publishing tips, now I’ve successfully traditional and self-published four books and now writing my fifth. It’s been an experience I tell you!
If you’re not published as yet, do you have questions or concerns over the process, your work, ideas or anything else? Maybe I could help if I have list of questions I’ll happily answer them.
Anyone who wants to participate send me a message via the contact Kim page and let’s begin!
By now you all know about the romantic thriller I’ve had in mind for the last year, well I’m working on it full time now. I have agreed to submit the full manuscript to a new publisher for January 2017! They have seen the first three chapters and want more :). Silly me, I’ve not got very far as I’ve been too busy working on the final for Not Just for Christmas (done),and my short story for the charity book Code Red (done).
When I sent out my work on query to two publishers, I never expected to hear back so soon from either of them. Now, I need to write write write! It’s a good thing the month of November is the month of Nanowrimo – writers try to pen 50,000 words- in a month. Personally I’ve never tried but here goes. I’m on it now I am free to focus on it. The goal for Nanowrimo for me is two chapters per week, from next week for the next eight weeks. That will leave the month of January, for editing and proof reading and submission. I’m so looking forward to writing this story to share with you all, if all goes well once the publisher has seen the full story.
Just a quick share of this email that popped up in my inbox today.Are you a sci-fi writer? This one is for you. A few agents are looking for manuscripts in the scfi and adult fantasy genre. And there’s a writing competition, click the link below. Good luck!
I thought I’d share this with you all as it appeared in my inbox. Now I’m far from a scary writer. Horror, scary or paranormal stories are something I’ve never turned my hand to. But if that’s you , or you’d like to give it ago and win a chance to have your work published in a book, check out this Halloween submission call from Tell-Tale Publishing. Click here
Yesterday I had a really terrible day (Tuesday) I won’t bore you all with why, it’s a new day. Today -Wednesday I woke up to two more five star reviews for A Stranger in France. This makes a total of seven so far. I swear the last one almost made me want to cry! As I said when I posted my four star review that came back from Goodreads it humbles me, surprises me and most of all motivates me to know readers so far are enjoying my work. It’s feedback like this that makes a writer hold on to their own self-belief, that maybe one day they can just write! For the love of it.
Well until that day comes for me, I better continue getting ready for the day job, and focus on writing my third story and the charity book story. If you’re an aspiring writer, published author whatever you want to call your self bottom line is you have a dream to write … don’t stop, if you get turned down, take it on the chin and keep it moving. If you get told don’t write this write that but you have just one passion- keep it moving believe in yourself! And be you. Good luck!
I absolutely adored this book! I felt like I was a fly on the wall during all of Kate’s experiences. The story was great, and I really hope that Kim Knight writes more books that I can read! I love novels written by anyone, but I especially love novels written by a Brit! I love British slang and humor and this book had it all! Kim Knight is awesome! She should be on a top list of authors for people to read, as well as one of the best books of the fall! A Stranger in France is high on my list!
This reminds me of the movie Under The Tuscan Sun. Here, the story unfolds in the beautiful backdrop of France. Seeing their marriage is failing because of her husband, Kate travels to her bestfriend who lives in Marseilles, to take a break from her marriage. During her vacation, she met a charming, tall, dark and hadsome man, Nicholas. You will get entangled with Kate’s journey with twists to entertain all readers. Kate represents a strong woman who has her own mind and strong will.
I volunteered to review the Advance Reader Copy provided by the author.
Are you ready? If not y’all better get ready! Then tell someone else, they better get ready too! Spread the word don’t keep this a secret, and feel free to share this. I’m so excited over this creative writing project my publisher is taking part in. I’m extremely proud to have been asked to take part as an author. We’re writing to raise money for Children’s Cancer Research over in the USA, our stories will feature in one novel. Stories across more genres than you can shake a stick at..
Courtesy of one of the authors taking part she put this together, I’m please to reveal our book trailer for Code Redhead released in February. If you’re not sure what all the excitement is about, click here and find out.
So a few days ago I told you all about the charity writing project I’m participating in with my publisher, to help raise some money. Myself and a few other authors will write a short story to publish together in one book. The book will be on sale from February 2017, all proceeds from the book sales go to the charity Standup2cancer, we (authors) will not see a penny of it. You can read more about what I’m doing and the project here if you missed my blog on this.
Today, I’d like to invite you help or decide for me what genre story I should write? I thought this may be fun and also I can’t decide! But today I got my deadline, so I better get cracking.With your vote, tell me should I write a romance or thriller genre short story to include for publication in February 2017? Our stories can only be 15k max in words, so it’s pretty short. Place a quick vote in below. This vote will be open until the 30th September only.
