Kara Scrivener Owner/Editor - Fiction & Nonfiction
Founder of Emerging Ink Solutions, Kara has been in the writing/editing business for over 15 years, serving clients from around the world. She founded Emerging Ink Solutions to help the individual author self-publish his or her work professionally and affordably.
Kara began her career as a Young Adult/New Adult Fiction author. While working on her own books, she provided editing and writing services to friends, family, and acquaintances. When it became apparent that she had quite the talent for providing guidance, constructive advice, and a creative touch, she began taking on projects as a freelance editor and writer, working with clients worldwide.
In 2018, Kara launched Emerging Ink Solutions when she realized that authors - especially those new to the industry - were in need of friendly and professional help to prepare their works for publication/self-publication. Because of this, she greatly encourages fledgling writers to submit their works for editing and formatting.
Kara graduated in 2012 from the University of Arkansas' prestigious Communication department with a Masters of Arts in Communication with special emphasis in ESL Education and Mass Media Communication. She also holds a double-major in International Relations and Asian Studies and a minor in Japanese.
In her spare time, she enjoys playing video games with her husband, working on her own books, playing the piano, traveling, and chasing her rambunctious toddler. Kara likes reading a bit of everything but she especially loves science-fiction, fantasy, dystopian fiction, historical fiction, and non-fiction historical texts.
