Thank You for the Big Ideas!

Firstly, I want to kick off this post with a big thank you to everyone who got in touch with their suggestions on what blog post series they’d like to see on Writerly Bookish Stuff in the future.

I have listened to you all. It’s great to know that some of my previous series received such a great reception.

With that in mind, I shall be holding a picture prompt series and a series about writing a first draft. Both of these series will run in the 2nd half of the year. I’ll let you know more nearer the time

Don’t forget that there is still series two, Character Interviews, to look forward to on Wednesday 10th April. You’ll get to know a little more about my characters over the next ten weeks.

Blog Birthday

big news!

I totally missed my blog birthday on July 8th- oops. Anyway, this is just a short post to say thank you to all the folks who follow, comment, like, and share my blog posts. I started this blog to coincide with the release of my debut novel, EVO Nation, and the journey has surpassed anything I could have imagined.


I hope you all stick around for another year! Thanks, guys!

A New Blogging Milestone


I’m overwhelmed to say the least. I have just reached my 200 followers milestone! There are 200 of you gorgeous people following my little ol’ blog, and I’m so grateful to you all.

A friendly introduction for my new followers, and some of you oldies (you know who you are. you’re part fo the furniture now):

6tag_091215-185819This is me- crazy eyes, cheesy grin, and all! My name is Kayleigh, but my pen name is K.J.Chapman. I am a twenty nine year old, wife, and mother of one. Oh yeah, and I like to write- a lot!

If I’m not writing, I’m blogging, reading, and reviewing. I particularly enjoy reading obscure ebooks, and reviewing them with hopes to bring them into the mainstream. Us authors have to help each other out, right?

I have self-published three eBooks on Amazon Kindle: two science fiction and urban fantasy novels, and one writing prompt book.

My books:

EVO Nation Series- book one & two:

EVO Nation Blurb:

The 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.

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 society’s thirst for war and vengeance, or will Teddie be strong enough to stop him?

EVO Shift Blurb:

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?

Prompt Me: 150 Writing Prompts For Beating The Block

Prompt Me(1)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 feature short stories and writing exercises on this blog, and my love of writing prompts is apparent. So, I thought to myself, why not compile my prompts into an ebook for all to enjoy? That’s exactly what I did, and I even threw in a couple of short stories featured on this blog.

100% K.J Chapman, Writing and Me

Milestone and Me!

Wow! I have just reached the 100 followers milestone. I’m feeling the love and support right now, and it makes all the time spent writing and blogging worthwhile. I have loved every minute of my blogging experience, and the community vibe from other bloggers is fantastic. I hope to support others as much as they have supported me on my journey. Thank you folks!

I haven’t done an introductory post of sorts for a while, so for all my new followers, and some of my older followers, this is me, Kayleigh, (K.J.Chapman):

I’m a twenty-nine year old, mother, fiancé, writer, author, book lover, blogger, tea drinker, housekeeper, daydreamer, recycler, thrift shopper, the list can be infinite. I am a born and bred Cornish girl and have been told I have an accent to match. Yep, I do say ‘bleddy ansum’, ‘dreckly’, and ‘alright arr ee.’ Cornwall is my favourite place in the whole world. We’re friendly folk overall, and I enjoy the pace of life.

My passion is writing. I have a particular interest in writing young and new adult, science fiction and fantasy novels. I self-published my first eBook, EVO Nation, in June 2015 ( please check it out via the link below), and I am currently writing book two in the EVO Nation series, EVO Shift.

My second passion is reading. I have an eclectic reading taste; picking one genre would be like asking a mother to pick her favourite child. I have recently started book review posts as part of my blog. It seemed like a natural progression considering the amount of time I spend reading. I am particularly eager to help spread the word on obscure eBooks, helping to bring them into the mainstream.

Finally, I’m a fan girl! Dr Who, Game of Thrones, Firefly, The Walking dead, and anything Marvel. I’m a self-proclaimed geek and proud of it.

Connect with me! I’m like horse poo in Cornwall, you can find me everywhere if you look hard enough:






Thanks again for the support, and here’s to many more posts to come…
