Candice Toone

Candice Toone

Content Editor, Marketing Head

Candice joined the CookieLynn Publishing team in September 2015 as the social media/client relations specialist and expanded her role to include content editing in August 2016. She’s been an active critiquer since 2009, helping multiple authors polish their manuscripts for both traditional and self-publication. She particularly enjoys combing through women’s fiction and romance reads to squeeze out every ounce of emotional depth from the characters. She’s fascinated by the idea that every character is her own hero and enjoys watching the characters struggle to see multiple perspectives on any given plot point. Her edits flow in a stream-of-consciousness fashion, so you’ll get authentic compliments and suggestions as she reacts to your work.

Candice is a content editor for CookieLynn Publishing Services.
