12 Kipperton Road










By Kipper Kipperson



Once upon a time, in the forest, there lived a maiden. Her name was Aurora, after the dawn. Born to the King and Queen, she was bestowed a thousand gifts from well-wishers and family from all around the kingdom. Everyone was in awe of this beautiful child, except one, Maleficent.

Maleficent was a jealous and cruel woman yet she had very magical powers.  On the day of Aurora’s christening, she turned up uninvited and placed a curse on the very sweet an innocent child.



Remember to include headers with surname/title of work and page numbers. From personal experience, do your research and follow the publisher’s guidelines.


UPDATE: “Word count” needs to be top right but my blog moved it over to the left instead. 0.5 paragraph indents were also stripped.  I can’t upload my word document template otherwise I’d just send that over.




"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018
