Supporting and Promoting Authors and Writers with Professional Editing, Book Reviews, and Graphic Design.
Opal Publishing began in November 2014.
Cindy DeJager has had a keen interest in writing and publishing all of her life. She began early in grade school with writing stories and poetry and then her interest in increased as she watched her mother research and write her own book.
In the years to come she helped her mother with the marketing and sales of her book and she learned web design.
Cindy managed a book review service for new and published authors under the name of BookReviews411. It was from this experience that she decided to create a monthly newsletter that she distributed to the Calgary Library branches.
In 2009 she began working for Great News Publishing and for 8 years she was the senior editor, until 2017. During those years she learned everything that she could about running a publishing company.
Cindy decided to start her own publishing company and Opal Publishing was founded in November 2014.
The Opal Writers’ Magazine was published for 5 years and though the print edition was discontinued last fall.
OPAL PUBLISHING continues to support authors and writers with editing, book reviews, and marketing your book on the social media channels.
