evo shift jpegBlurb: She killed him, but did it make a difference?

Her kind has been exposed, abused, and segregated, and now Teddie Leason is top of Britain’s most wanted list at just nineteen. Teddie has to decide whose side she is on, what she fights for, and whether it’s worth her life.

How can she protect the man she adores, the Uncle who has taken her under his wing, and her unfaltering friends, when she can barely take care of herself? Dealing with new power and a history that has long since been forgotten, has rendered the world’s most powerful EVO vulnerable and at risk.

When will she be dealt a winning hand? Could a clandestine, renegade group of EVO change not only her fate, but that of everyone affected by this unprecedented war? And how does Teddie fit in a world bracing for a shift of unfathomable magnitude?

SURPRISE!! My Side Project Has Come To Fruition…

Prompt Me(1)I finally have a writing prompt eBook for sale on Amazon Kindle:

Prompt Me: 150 Writing Prompts for Beating the Block.

Blurb: We have all stared at a blank screen or notepad, willing the inspiration to come. Not only is this the most frustrating, infuriating, time wasting thing that can happen to a writer, it is also avoidable. Whether, you need to beat the block, take a breather from your current work in progress, or just harness your inner creativity, writing exercises are the way forward. Take a prompt, give yourself a time allowance, and create.

I have been quietly working on this project alongside writing EVO Shift, book two in the EVO Nation series. I’m a sucker for writing prompts, as you probably know from my writing exercise posts, and I wanted to tap into that love and compile a writing prompts eBook. All the prompts are original and I have included some of my own writing exercise examples that have been featured on this blog.

Why not challenge yourself? Work your way through the book, expanding on one prompt a day. Ten minutes per exercise will amount to approximately 25 hours of writing time under your belt. Just saying…

Buy Prompt Me for just £1.49 on Amazon Kindle.

What can you expect??

More EVO. More abilities. More war. More heartbreak. More love.

Shameless Self-Promotion: EVO Nation

I’m not one to shy away from self-promotion. I do, however, try to be tactful about it, but hey, tact doesn’t equal awareness in all cases. So, my plan is to dedicate a post to my self-published eBook with reviews and all the other bumf that goes with it, and let my shamelessness reign supreme…

EVO Nation Series Book One: EVO Nation by K.J.Chapman

Summer Reading List Evo NationThe government tortures her, her own kind uses her, and she is learning the true meaning of ulterior motives. Teddie Leason has been dragged into the festering underbelly of the secretive world of EVO; a world about to be blown wide apart.

EVO are the next link in evolution, but with that title come the dangers of capture, torture, and experimentation. And with that threat come the need to survive, and a breed of EVO who are set to not only thrive, but rule.

Teddie has the fate of the EVO and Non-EVO world resting on her shoulders, and now, the reclusive teenager who couldn’t get upset without her unruly ability causing destruction, has to somehow embrace her gift to save her new friends and her new love.

Will the actions of one man fuel a suppressed, supremacist cult’s desire for war and vengeance, or will Teddie be strong enough to stop him?… Should she stop him?

Amazon reviews:

‘Brilliant. Loved it – so much so I’ve read it twice now. It’s energetic, fast paced, romantic, come-uppance story line interacts well with the sci-fi futuristic theme throughout. It is definitely a teenager/young sci-fi readers book. Being past that age group has not stopped me loving the book. I enjoy sci-fi/futuristic books, and this one is well worth a read for anyone who enjoys these style of books, no matter the age. The author explains who is who and what they can do without taking up whole chapters, you get drawn in and at each twist and turn just when you think you’ve got it sussed there’s something else. Got to the end and wanted to pick up the next book straight away, hence read it twice, which has only peeked my interest even more for the second book. So please get on and finish the next book. Well done for your first book and I hope there are many more to come. Everyone out there who enjoys this type of genre (no matter your age) should read and recommend to anyone that they know.’ – Kaz

‘I absolutely love this book!!! I could not put it down and read it in two sittings. The author has created believable characters; you will fall in love with them and you will hate them. (My favourite is Golding). The narrative throws you some curve balls to keep you in suspense and on you toes, but still grabs your attention in its unpredictability. The target audience would be teenagers, but this did not stop me from enjoing every page. The author’s writing style is straightforward and easy to read. This book has the power and the sci-fi element of X-Men, the sheer brutality of The Hunger Games and the political message of V for Vendetta. I cannot wait for the next instalment.’ – C.M.Bain

Facebook reviews:

‘Anyone that knows me, knows I hate reading but this book is so catchy it’s unreal, catches you in the first few pages, it’s so good! I’m still reading it, even though I can only get through a few pages at a time but it’s a story line that just doesn’t leave your head! Completely recommend! Go and read ‘EVO nation’ search it on Amazon.’ – J. Billing

‘Just had the pleasure of reading EVO nation. The illiterate part of my brain was screaming WOW! The higher functioning part was screaming too many big expressive words for me to keep up with lol. But seriously what an amazing book. Right away you’re sucked into a roller-coaster storyline filled with characters you can’t help but relate to and love.. But also one you love to hate and can’t wait to see them get a damn good comeuppance! And oh what fantastically satisfying comeuppances K, Chapman dishes out!! EVO Nation is the sort of book that makes you want to abandon every day life in favour of a comfy chair and silence (and the book of course!) , the kind of book that makes you read till your eyes feel like they’re going to shrivel up! A sassy, addictive read! Can’t wait for the sequel! If you haven’t already read it, get on with it!’- L. Carter

REVIEW: The Girl In between by Laeken Zea Kemp

The Girl In Between by Laeken Zea kemp 5/5

Blurb: Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.

I downloaded this book for FREE from Amazon and was incredibly impressed. I loved the writing style, the concept, and the characters. Kemp does a fantastic job of making the world Bryn disappears into during her sleep disorder episodes, convincing and believable; one of dreams, memories and nightmares. Kemp has done a great job introducing the science and factual side of Klein-Levin Syndrome and this all adds to the realism of the story and Bryn’s journey.

 Bryn was true to character, and as a teenager afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome she shares her fears and doubts, whilst maintaining a likable personality. Her family dynamic and the way her mother tries to mollycoddle her is fitting for Bryn and her condition, and Kemp’s portrayal of the Grandma gives me the impression that the grandmother knows something more, but that may be brought to light in the sequel… we shall see.

Bryn feels isolated from those around her, missing huge chunks of her home life and personal life. When a mysterious boy washes up on the beach in her sleep world, things take an unexpected turn. Roman is just as terrified, isolated and lost as she is. Only, he is lost in her sleep world and cannot wake up from it. Their relationship blossoms and I liked Roman’s character a great deal. He’s not the stereotypical, hunky boy who just so happens to fall in love with the protagonist, he is his own person with his own issues and fears. The story does switch to Roman’s POV occasionally, and I appreciated the insight into his mind.

I read the ending in one sitting as I was desperate to know who exactly Roman was and what had happened to him in the ‘real’ world. I can’t wait to start book two in the series ‘The Boy In Her Dreams’. I highly recommend this book and it’s FREE, so what have you got to lose?
