Who is Kylie Day?
I am a lover of books and stories, an avid reader, and a passionate writer. I am currently in the works of writing a series of fiction books aside from expanding my non-fiction series (The Busy Author's Guide) and running The Writing Kylie.
In the beginning of June 2015 I finished writing my BA essay in Literature. I am not nearly done with my studies, though. I enjoy reading and learning about the different aspects of books too much to stop. Some say you have to read to be a writer, and I couldn’t agree more.
Which brings us to my passion—writing.
I’ve always dreamed of becoming a writer and writing my own books. I have written stories since I was a child but haven’t really had the means or courage to publish anything until recently.
In October and November 2015 I took a leap of faith and published my first five books in five weeks. Those five books belong to a series of non-fiction ebooks for writers called The Busy Author’s Guide. You can read about the series and find out more about the individual books on the books-page here.
Now, I have written and published 10+ books and have developed my skills and confidence along the way. Taking that first leap of faith was the best thing I've done this far. But, I'm not nearly done.
Exciting things are coming, and I can't wait to share them with you.
I hope you will join me on this exciting journey.
