Cindy gave me my first big PR with a cover of Opal magazine when I published my first book, The Fountain, back in 2016 and I’ll be forever grateful. Now, I’m lucky enough to be doing all things writing full-time and I’m thrilled that Cindy and Opal are stronger than ever. Opal takes pride in paying its writers for content. Opal lifts writers’ voices so that they can be heard. And Opal provides amazing perspective and content on the changing publishing industry. I can’t wait to see what Cindy and this next iteration of Opal do next.
