About Mary

Kit ‘N Kabookle
The whole Kit ‘N Kabookle of reading, editing, and promotion

Hi, I’m Mary, and I started Kit ‘N Kabookle in 2013 after a brief bout at another (now defunct) blog. I was working toward my MFA in Writing Popular Fiction at Seton Hill University at the time and sought a way to become more active in the book world. After discovering book blogs, I said “hey, I can do that” and promptly did. Seven years later, I’ve never looked back, and I’m still a little too proud of coming up with the name.

I earned my MFA in 2014, which began several years of unofficial critiquing and editing. In November of 2019, I decided “hey, I’ve got knowledge and experience. I should offer up my expertise,” and I promptly did that. In addition to promotion, I edit and beta read and love the heck out of all three. My passion is good books, and my goal is to help more amazing stories see the lights in the eyes of enraptured readers.

I also work as a Study Guide Writer for Super Summary, untangling meanings for readers who struggle. As time allows, I review over at OnlineBookClub.org, and I used to read slush for Daily Science Fiction. I have a smattering of short stories published with small presses, and I also have some self-published romance novels.

Want to be featured on Kit ‘N Kabookle? Check out my hosting guidelines and get in touch. Due to the amount of requests I receive and my other obligations, I regret I can’t accept every request I receive. I’m a one-woman team, but hey, ask. The worst that can happen is nothing. HINT: Taking the time to show you know my name (which is right at the top of the blog, as well as on this page) goes a long way in my decision to host.

Looking for an editor or beta reader? Hop on over to my editing services page for a glimpse at what I offer.

  5. I'm commenting on the interview of the author of "Crimson Son" . I have had this book marked as "want to read" on goodreads.com for a while. What I liked most about the interview was how Russ described which character he would most like to have a drink with. Pretty funny.
