Character Interviews and Aesthetics

2nd Blog Series of 2019

The second blog series of 2019 is fast approaching (April 10th ). As you can probably guess from the header, this series is all about the characters in my books.

Each week, I’ll interview my character, create a character aesthetic board, and include quotes from the book.

I’m really looking forward to this series as I get to revisit old friends. I hope you enjoy meeting them too.

Depending on what character I’m highlighting that week, the book they feature in will be on sale for 99p until the following week. Sometimes, I’ll throw in a freebie, so keep your eyes peeled!

Thrown to The Blue

Thrown to The Blue

This week, I’m focussing on my fantasy book, Thrown to The Blue. Thrown to The Blue was an idea that popped into my head when I was supposed to be drafting EVO Ghost. The idea snowballed, I couldn’t stop writing, and I wrote the last 30k words during a CampNaNo month! I’m very proud of how this book turned out.

I’m offering you a chance to grab a copy of Thrown to The Blue for free until March 24th! Get your copy from Amazon now.

The feedback for Thrown to The Blue was a huge confidence boost for me to go on and write my first zombie novella, Zombie Playlist.

Praise for Thrown to The Blue:

KJ Chapman has created a fantasy world on a par with Game of Thrones, intricately detailed.’ – Amazon review.

An impressive narrative that is not afraid to be different. It is a daring fantasy that will leave you reeling long after the last chapter’ has been read.’ – Amazon review.

‘Ezra is the perfect heroine- independent, fiercly strong-willed, and protective.’ – Goodreads review.

Title Reveal

Now that my Teaser Tuesday posts are well underway, and I have been posting teasers from my current WIP, I thought it time to do a title reveal.

The blurb and cover reveal will be a little while yet, as I haven’t even finished the first draft. I’m hoping April’s CampNaNo will help me with that!

Enough chatter, KJ, what did you call the damn book?…

Zombies and Budgie Smugglers

I think this sums up the whole tone and feel of the novella. If you don’t know what budgie smugglers are… Google it. 🤣


Keep your eyes peeled for more teasers and next week’s blurb reveal.

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

I swear these weeks are going faster than they used to. I almost forgot to write this post… almost. It was probably at the back of my mind just like my writing has been, to be honest. I’m embracing the fact that this book will come together in my own, sweet time. Adulting and being a mummy comes first.

So, without further ado, here’s a teaser from the little I did manage to write.

Tomorrow is the second week of my book promotion posts. Check in to find out a little more about my fantasy book, Thrown to The Blue.

I’m thrilled to welcome more new followers to Writerly Bookish Stuff, and this 4 week promo series of my books couldn’t have come at a better time. My second, official blog series starts on April 10th, so I had 4 weeks spare to get a little shameless self promotion posts out there.

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday

I have been plodding along with my writing this past week, and have now decided to shift a few chapters around and incorporate some info a little sooner in the narrative. When it comes to these changes, I start to procrastinate as I know I need to sit for a good few hours and sort it. It’s not editing, but putting the narrative in order before I can continue drafting. Once the chapters are in order, my mind is free to run with the story again.

Anyway, you are here for a teaser, right? This one gives a little insight into a sub character.

Join me tomorrow to find out about my published book series, EVO Nation.

Prompt Me Series

Prompt Me #10

Thank you to everyone who has popped by over the last 10 weeks to read my Prompt Me posts. Can you believe that 10 weeks have gone by already?

However, week 10 also means that you can only get my ebook, Prompt Me, at the sale price of 0.99p for one more week.

Next week, I will announce the new series starting in four weeks. I like a little break in between series for my own sanity. It also gives me scheduling time.

To replace this post for the next four weeks there will be a little post with information about my published books.


Prompt:

Black velvet is never used by the light occult. It is said to be a bad omen.

My Interpretation:

It’s after dark, and definitely after curfew. I could have been seriously punished just for coming here. To find that Fenrin isn’t here doesn’t sit well with me. The warning bell is guaranteed to sound within the next five minutes, and no one is stupid enough to go out after that.

The only place Fenrin would go after dark is to my hut, it’s the only reason worth the punishment. Staying out in the dark after the bell is certain death.

Not only that, his door was unlocked too. That alone puts a knot in my tummy. They can work doors. God knows where those things came from or how they have any form of consciousness. It is said that they are just minions to a darker force. The only ones to find out are the unlucky ones. The truth will die with them.

We have been terrorised by them for the past five winters. Each night they prowl. Each night they look to our community as a source of food. Not in the flesh and bone sense, but in the sense that they feed off of our essence. The light occult is a powerful source of magic, and somehow, they feed from it. Only a being of the dark occult would or could do such a thing. You feed from an essence, you kill the being.

Where are you, Fen? The warning bell sounds and my stomach sinks. Hopefully, he made it to another hut. Perhaps he went to my hut. I lock the door with iron, and then with magic. Then, I snuff the candle.

I sit for what feels like hours staring at the door. I hear no screams, so that’s a good sign. If everyone is safe, they’ll move on. Please, move on.

There is a bang against the door and it shudders. I clasp my hand to my mouth to muffle a scream. How can they know I’m in here? Another bang. I scuttle back toward the pantry incase my magical protection fails.

The handle turns, the lock clicks, and into the hut flies Fenrin. He stops dead in his tracks when he sees me. I stumble backward in fear and shock for he wears a black velvet cape that reaches to the ground. Black velvet is never used by the light occult. It is said to be a bad omen. The irises of his eyes are nonexistent. It is in that moment I know the truth.


Thank you again for following my Prompt Me series. Remember to grab your copy of Prompt Me via the link above whilst it is still just 99p.
