A rung on the ladder of life (or NEWS!)**Updated**

I'm going to post this announcement today, even though I suppose it's slightly premature... in that I haven't received my paperwork yet... but...

I am a newly minted Assistant Editor for Entangled Publishing! Seriously excited about this, folks. It's a tiny, bottom-rung job and I'll probably be making beans and doing tons of work for it... but it's an editing position with a publishing company! I'll be putting actual hours toward experience, learning more about the craft in the process, and helping authors achieve their dreams of being published!

I'm on one of the category romance lines right now. It's as good a place as any to start, I figure. I don't get to acquire anything (too low on the ladder as yet), but I'm hoping that this position will lead to bigger things in the future! I'm looking forward to posting more of my deep, dark musings about the editorial process from this new perspective. I hope you'll make sure to drop in and comment occasionally.

I have been freelancing as a developmental editor for YA and sci-fi novels for around 6 months now, as well, and I hope to continue doing that work... A girl's gotta have her pet projects. So if you know anyone who needs their MS edited, make sure to send them to Writing Refinery.

Coming soon:
Photos from a Roller Derby excursion. It was my first time attending a bout. Super fun!

No, Leslie, this does not mean we're staying in CT. It's a remote position that I can do from wherever I happen to live. :)


  1. Congrats!! Assistant Editor has a nice ring to it. I'm sure you'll do great!

    1. Thanks Lauren :) So far so good. I'm hoping for "Senior Editor" one day... or perhaps "Managing Editor"... but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

  2. Congrats! I think that's absolutely awesome. And there's no way to get started than you know, starting! Good luck.

    1. Thanks! And... yes! Starting. It's a good place to... start!

  3. OMG I saw your edit just before I posted in a panic, wondering if this means no California (not that it's proper to think of oneself before others). But yay! And CONGRATULATIONS! That sounds amazing, and I am so proud of you! It'll be cool to hear more about what it's like being an editor for a publishing company. Pinkies up, fancy lady!


What's on your mind? I wanna know!
