The Art of Designing and Writing - A Cover Designer/Artist and Indie Author's Journey AMA
My given name is Kathryn Jenkins, however, I go by two different names. In the author world I write under the name, K.M. Jenkins, and through my design business, I go by Katie.
I have been writing for several years now and just recently self-published a short story, “A Father’s Protection”. Besides working on getting my writings into print I have come to love the Indie author community. I got more involved in this community back in 2013 when I researched the path of self-publishing my own works.
This love for books, writing and meeting authors of all paths of life inspired my college life. I planned on getting a degree in journalism/mass communication when I attended Briar Cliff University. However, that changed when graphic design caught my attention. I found out how graphic design worked hand in hand with the publishing industry, then decided I wanted to become a cover designer.
Several of my designer friends went into the corporate world, however, I started my own business. I am the proud owner of KJ Magical Designs, LLC. I provide indie and self-published authors services from custom cover designs, pre-made covers, promotional ad services, and plan to add author branding options.
Ask me questions related to cover design, author branding, the indie and self-published world, or any acts of this industry that interests you. I’m an open book and will be happy to take any road your question leads me down.
