Kiyo’s Corner — September ’18

Hello and welcome to the September edition of Kiyo's Corner (:

Whole year round I can be found updating my Literary blog with new poems every week, and new stories as often as I can, as one of my own personal projects. Being both an artist and writer at heart, the poems from the Visual Poetry series (Micro Poetry, Haiku and About Love pieces) combine words with a type of imagery, aiming to enhance the feel of that poem's message, while each story in the Poetic Prose series (micro fiction and short stories) is accompanied with its own unique cover, and the work itself often touched with a hint of fantasy.

Every month I enjoy creating an overview of the shared works on my main blog, hoping to leave a touch of inspiration behind for anyone who needs it.

— Visual Poetry; Micro Poetry, Haiku and About Love series

— Poetic Prose; Micro Fiction and Short Stories

"A hero of old, he reaches out his heart"

This month's upload held a micro fiction story situated on the cusp of dreams; a romance that seems to have no boundaries in place or time...

Read Midnight Romeo here!

With this collection I'll leave you behind today, I sincerely hope you'll enjoy it — and, as always, want to drop me a line, leave one in the comments below 🙂

Love, Kiyo

News & Updates — Echoes from Another Time

Hello everyone,

With October just underway, it's time for my first proper news update; namely the upcoming release of my short story Echoes from Another Time!

Written especially for Halloween; the intriguing period of everything dark, supernatural beings, and wandering ghosts, I sat down to craft my own haunting tale while I listened to my favourite eerie soundtracks, my own mind wandering free, and now happily present the blurb to you all for the very first time...

“It all began with the footsteps”

When Ally awakes in the middle of the night to the sound of unexpected footsteps, she thinks her boyfriend has come home from his travels, but instead finds herself still eerily home alone. Quickly, things spin out of control as candles begin to burn out of their own accord, and a haunting, darkling spirit appears — leading her to discover that nothing she believed is what it seems...

— So, When Can I Read This?

Soon, very soon. Echoes from Another Time is a seven chapter short story, counting 4,670 words, and written in the same style as you've come to know from me in my Poetic Prose series. Counting down the days, it will be available in eBook on Halloween itself, October 31st — AND, wait for it, totally for FREE!

Keep an eye on both this blog and my social media channels if you want to covet a copy for yourself, or your supernatural-story-loving friend; because knowing time, it'll be the end of the month again faster than we think, and don't hesitate to get in touch in the comments below to tell me your thoughts, I'd love to find out (:

Have a wonderful rest of your day!

Love, Kiyo

News & Updates — Welcome to October :)

Hello everyone,

Welcome to October, and to the very last quarter of our year once again! Time is surely flying by, isn't it? The weather is changing as rapidly as the colours outside, getting colder and chillier, while the tree-leaves are set afire and begin the tumble and fall. I'm always very fond of Summer, despite the heat-waves that —even I admit— were a bit too full-on this past season, but Autumn is beautiful too, giving us scene's like these below.

— As Time Rushes Past

When I look back at the months, weeks and days behind me, for me it has done so with obvious evidence — it's been some incredibly busy times. Mainly because of this reason, and the many changes and developments in both my work and personal projects, I've decided to start writing a more personal blog next to my weekly Literature one, hoping to share more updates as I go along on my journey as freelance artist and indie-author.

So, what can you expect of me? A few things that I sincerely hope you'll enjoy.

Whenever I can I'll be writing a journal series called In Her Mind, in which I talk about all that interests and influences me in my art-creation, think legends, myth’s and mysteries, contemplating fact from fiction; every month I'll curate Kiyo's Corner, creating an overview of the past weeks worth of Visual Poetry and Poetic Prose I've shared on my Literature blog and social media; and last but not least, I'll keep you up-to-date about any kind of News & Updates about (upcoming) books, promotions, portfolio highlights and other relevant items.

The very first News & Updates items are coming along very shortly, for I have some (I find) exiting things planned for October, November and December 🙂

So, stay tuned — and have a wonderful week ahead!

Love, Kiyo
