Who Am I?

You might be wondering who I am –

Hi, my name is Amy Valentini.

I am an author of romance. I hope you’ll explore my Seekers of the Past series. Those who have read are clearly addicted and book four will be releasing soon.
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Mary Washington College (now known as the University of Mary Washington) in Virginia. I’ve taught high school English, studied paralegal law, worked as a Realtor, as well as owned my own businesses. I’ve worked in offices and written many a letter, contract, and document which made others look fabulous and who had no problem taking the credit. I don’t mind that at all, of course. You see, I enjoy making others look good.

While in college, I earned extra money by typing term papers for fellow students. I was frustrated because I had taken an oath that I would not, in any manner, change their work. Well, I had to type a whole lot of poorly written papers because of that oath. I decided right then that when I finished my degree I was going to head to New York City, get a job as an editor in a publishing company, and write novels. Of course, it didn’t happen that way because life intervened, but it didn’t stop my dream or my need to constantly correct and edit other people’s work. In fact, it has enabled me to assist authors in getting publishing contracts, awards, and followers. My covers aren’t too shabby either – they like awards too.

When I first decided to start my blog Unwrapping Romance in 2011, I had no idea how it would lead me to so much fun and build me such a reputable position as a romance book reviewer. I became one of the first Avon Addicts for Avon Romance, and I’m still active with the group as well as many other bloggers and tour groups.

I love everything about the writing community. My affection for this community drives me to promote it and tell the world about the talent which exists within the realm of all genres, and to help make all authors and their talent shine.

If you’re interested in allowing me to assist you to be all you can be as an author, whether looking for an agent/publisher, or planning to self-publish, please contact me so we can talk.  Comments are always welcome, but you may use the contact form for privacy. I don’t mind. I’m open 24/7 for you.

Let me assist in finding success for you and your book. 

Happy Writing!
