I am delighted to welcome Kiltie Jackson to Creating Perfection today as she shares her self-publishing journey with us.
Who are you and when did your journey begin?
I’m Kiltie Jackson and my writing journey started with some little tiptoe steps approximately eleven years ago. I had written seventeen chapters of my book, although, not with the intention of doing anything with it, I just had a story in my head that I needed to write down. I then decided it was a load of rubbish and shelved it. Last year, 2016, I read about an author who had written a book to prove to her children that you can do anything you want to do, she self-published and went on to become a bestselling writer. This prompted me to pick up my previous work, blow the dust off and upon reading it again, I realised that it wasn’t rubbish after all and I finished the story.
I did not expect to have the same outcome as the author who had inspired me to return to writing but I don’t mind as I am loving just sitting down and pouring out the stories which come into my head. The fact that other people are also enjoying them is a lovely, surprising bonus
A Christmas-loving Cat lover? A Sound of Music Fanatic? A Fiercely Independent Woman?
She is all of the above. And when she is sent to Salzburg for a business trip a few weeks before Christmas, she thinks all her dreams have come true. As she packs her suitcase, the only things on her mind are Christmas markets, lots of snow and finally seeing the Doh-Ray-Me steps. Becoming the new best friend of the world’s hottest rock-star doesn’t even get a look in.
Pete Wallace is a reclusive, reluctant, rock-star and the world’s Number One, best-selling, male solo artist. It’s been three years since his last tour and he’s now preparing to go back on the road again. A week in Salzburg, schmoozing with the music press, is one of his worst nightmares.
He can’t wait for it to be over.
When Pete and Sukie meet, it is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Lonely for too long, he begins to remember how it feels to be happy and, for the first time in six years, Christmas feels special again.
Eduardo di Santo however, whose kid sister suffered life-changing injuries at a Pete Wallace concert, is all set on getting revenge. When Pete’s new tour is announced, he begins to make his plans. Plans that will culminate in Pete’s demise.
Will Pete and Sukie’s new friendship die before it has a chance to flourish?
A Christmas tale full of love, laughter, friendship and revenge.
