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.
ABOUT EVENING SKY
Evening Sky Design is a graphic design company specializing in website design for authors, small press publishers, and other businesses. Our sister company, Evening Sky Publishing Services, specializes in book publishing services for authors and small publishers.
Between both companies, our services include website design (authors, businesses, bloggers); book cover design (eBooks, paperbacks, hardbacks, audiobooks, 3D boxsets); book promotion and marketing design (social media banners, Book Ads, etc.); book formatting and layout (ebook and print), proofreading, and more.
We offer our book publishing services to both fiction and non-fiction authors. As visual representations of your manuscript, your book covers and website are the most important marketing tools available to you. Working closely together, our team will create an appealing and memorable book cover to perfectly complement your manuscript, and a website that will represent your brand 24/7.
Initially, the business was called Aeternum Designs, focusing solely on book cover design for independently-published authors and small publishing presses. Over time and with growth, it was decided to offer more publishing services in addition to cover design. 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. And not just with authors. Other types of businesses enquired as well. So, we decided to branch off this part of the business to meet the demands of all kinds of businesses.
We invite you to subscribe to our site so you'll be the first to hear about what new and exciting improvements are planned in these ever-changing times.
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 mainly, and The Crime Cove, which focused on reviewing true crime and crime fiction. Kat is also an Indigenous author of the K'Taqmkuk Mi'kmaw tribe who 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, entrepreneurship, and relationship management.
