I’ve always had a passion for reading. Since I first opened the pages at a very young age, I was enthralled with everything about books. As I got a little older, I realized I wanted to be the person who helped shape them, before they were published. I followed that dream, graduating with honors from Grand Canyon University, receiving a BA in English/Literature. I have a special fondness for independent authors, as I applaud the gumption to realize your dreams on your own. If I had to pick a favorite genre of books, it would be dystopian, but I love them all. The worlds that authors create help me escape, if only for a little while.

I live in Alabama with my husband and three rambunctious children, ranging in ages from three to nine. My dream allows me to stay at home with my children, do the job I love, and be the mom I want to be at the same time. I enjoy spending time with my family, iced coffee, sappy TV shows, camping, and pretending to love Auburn Tiger football with my husband.

    I have written a 50,000 word contemporary novel and wondered if you would be able to be an editor for me? It is my first attempt at writing so I don’t know if it is any good and am not really sure how to progress….Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks, Marjolein x

  16. Hi, Cynthia. Thanks for following my blog. I like the variety of material your blog offers, plus the giveaways. I shall be back for more, soon!

  17. Wow, married with three kids, plus finding the time to major in English. I’m impressed. One day I’d like to get my masters in creative writing, but only once my two kids grow up a little. They are 4 and 2, and I must say quite a handful, I can’t imagine three, although I would have loved one more, but I’m just too damn tired. I look forward to reading your blog. Good luck.

  18. Cynthia and Cassie,

    I am so happy to have found your blog, it is so great that you both work together as a team. So far after browsing, I like that you offer services along with reviews and everything between. Be sure that I will be following, thanks so much!

  19. I am looking for services for full length novels. Novels that are in the rang of 42k-56k words with a reasonable turnaround time and affordable. I am also looking to add an editorial service to my website, facebook, and other sites for promoting. Please email me on my inquiry.
