Meet Kelly

Kelly Oakes

I started this company because of my love of books and wanted to do something that involved them, but at the same time; wouldn’t make me hate them.

It started with one book… No really, I hurt my back nearly 2009 and was bored out of my mind while on a 2 week rehabilitation at home. A friend brought by a book from a series she’d been reading… it was my gateway drug. I started blogging about these amazing things called BOOKS! I read 24 books during my R&R at home and haven't stopped devouring them. 

I’ve now been a blogger since 2010 and made many author friends from my site or going to book conventions. I love interacting with the authors and promoting their books. I love sharing the books that excite me and bring me joy!

It wasn’t until a BIG move across the U.S. was scheduled with my husband’s company that I had the idea, or fear, “What the heck am I going to do for work in Florida?” So, one night when at a convention and sitting in a van with Jade Lee outside of a strip club in Vegas (100% real), she mentioned she was losing her assistant. I jumped at the chance and said, “I’m starting my own company, I’ll be your assistant!” True story. The move fell through, but the new company and job was born.

Fast forward to 2016...I had the opportunity to finally move to Florida and I jumped at the chance. I'm still blogging and assisting authors, but doing it from a beachside town called Gulf Breeze, FL. 

I'm a Mom, book lover, reviewer, blogger and jill of all things! and I'm still in love with books.
