About Me

Carolin Petersen is the owner and operator of Tigerpetal Press. Her hobbies include reading, hiking, and assembling jigsaw puzzles with her family.

Carolin has been a writer for thirteen years after falling in love with the craft at a young age. Throughout her elementary, middle, and high school years, she could often be found sitting at a computer, typing away in Word.

When she was sixteen, she self-published her first novel, Broken Compass. The book is currently being rewritten.

Carolin currently lives in Chilliwack, BC, after attending Okanagan College in Kelowna for their Writing and Publishing Program. Since graduating, she has started her own business, joined a local Writing Group, and is steadily making a name for herself.

Her vision for Tigerpetal Press is to support local authors and poets in British Columbia, while also offering freelance services to indie authors around the world. With her blog, she hopes to spread help spread her experiences with new authors, provide her opinions for discussion, and share reviews for both widespread trades books and lesser-known self-published authors.

Her favourite aspect of the publishing process is book design. She’d never given it much thought before but fell in love with typography and the intricacies of typesetting during her post-secondary education.

Attended Okanagan College from September 2019 to December 2021.

The W&P Diploma is a two-year program focused on Creative Writing, Professional Editing, Document Preparation & Design, Book Binding, and more.

It teaches how to go from draft 1 of a novel all the way through to publication, and guarantees its students are adept in the latest software in the business.
