“There, I will stake my last like a woman of spirit. No cold prudence for me. I am not born to sit still and do nothing.

If I lose the game, it shall not be from not striving for it.” ~Mary Crawford, Mansfield Park

Welcome to the Quill Ink, the site to share all my upcoming editing and publishing projects, book reviews, and other on dits. Since 2013, I have worked with over thirty authors, self-published and curated five anthologies, and edited numerous contemporary and historical romance, Austen-adjacent, and chicklit books under my own banner.


Thank you readers, authors, bloggers, and other reviewers who help support all my bookish projects in this Wild West that we call modern day publishing. With a few projects in the queue, 2021 is looking to be another stellar year.


August 2021, I finished writing my own novel. With hints of the paranormal, Woman in the Painting reveals two love stories separated by centuries and connected by an unsigned portrait. My diverse cast of characters are immersed in love, flawed values, jealousy, lust, avarice, pride, and sacrifice, but mostly love in this dual era, upmarket historical fiction. —Christina Boyd
