LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT | ABOUT EVENING SKY DESIGN
OUR SHARED LAND
LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT...Evening Sky Design is located on the unceded traditional lands of the following Indigenous tribes: Beothuk, Mi'kmaq, Innu, and Labrador Inuit.
We are grateful to those who cared for this land long before settlers of other nations immigrated to K'Taqmkuk, and are proud to be able to work alongside all the various nations who love this land and remain loyal to her well-being.
Long story short...On an island in the North Atlantic Ocean, now called Newfoundland and Labrador, a province of Canada, Kat McCarthy created this venture in 2013 with the desire to help authors sell books in the wildly booming publishing industry.
As an avid reader, Kat had contributed to several book review blogs over the years, "Smitten With Bad Boy Heroes," which reviewed contemporary, historical, and paranormal romance, as well as "The Crime Cove," which reviewed true crime and crime fiction. Kat is also an Indigenous author of the K'Taqmkuk Mi'kmaw tribe and has published a non-fiction book titled "Invisible Victims" about the national crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. Both of these experiences have given her a unique perspective when it comes to understanding and balancing an author's needs and desires in book marketing. Kat also has a Bachelor of Commerce and 20+ years of experience in operations management, finance, and entrepreneurship.
Initially, that business was called Aeternum Designs, focusing solely on book cover design for independently-published authors and small independent publishing presses. Over time and with growth, both professional and personal, Kat decided to offer more publishing services in addition to cover design. We felt these new changes warranted a new name, and Evening Sky Publishing Services was born. One of the new services added was Website Design and it has become in great demand. But not just with authors. Other types of businesses were enquiring as well. So we decided to branch off this part of the business to meet the demands of all kinds of businesses.
