About Me

Hello! My name is Carolin Petersen, and I am the owner and operator of Tigerpetal Press. I grew up locally in British Columbia, and I’ve always had a voracious appetite for fantasy and magic.

I fell in love with stories at a young age. I was always reading or writing or daydreaming about fantastical worlds where dragons were real and young teens went out on adventures.

I have a few books in the works, but none published yet.

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.
