Headshot, Margaret Kingsbury

I’m a journalist, editor, book reviewer, and tutor with more than a decade of experience working with kids and reviewing and recommending books.

I would love to work with you! To inquire about rates to any of these services, email me at kingsbury.margaret@gmail.com.

Sponsored Content

I offer many options for sponsored content: blog posts, story shares, reels, in-feed reviews, giveaways, cover reveals, and more. I am very selective about what sponsored content I accept. I want to ensure that my content aligns with my inclusive values and with what my followers are looking for. In the past, I’ve worked with Holiday House, Tra Publishing, Astra Kids Books, ColorPop Books, individual authors like Kelly Bennett and Carrie A. Pearson, and more. I offer many packages at various rates. Email me for more information and a rate card.

Note: Only on very rare occasions do I review self-published books. Is this children’s book really unique? Are the illustrations the same quality as traditionally published books? If the answer is yes to both of these questions, go ahead and send me an email to inquire. If no to both or either, it’s a pass from me.

Editorial Work

Would you like an extra pair of eyes on that children’s book manuscript? I’ve worked as an editor for Salt and Sage Books, and I’ve been hired by individual authors. I’ve also been an editor, proofreader, fact checker, and sensitivity reader for numerous publications. I’d be happy to help you with your manuscript. Rates vary by the type of editorial work you need.


As a content writer, I’ve written book reviews for websites, business emails, social media content, book blurbs for authors, website biographies, and more. Let me know if you need some writing done!

Specialized Book Lists

Do you want a book list curated just for you or your child(ren)? I would love to help! I worked in a bookstore for over a decade and have been reviewing children’s books professionally for just as long. Let me do the research for you with a specialized list of books I know will be hits!
