Jami has interned for Entangled publishing, Bree Ogden (while at D4EO), and The Bent Agency. She has experience handling extensive amounts of slush and evaluating hundreds of manuscripts in reports. Her love of books led her to a BA in English. She adores stories with a strong voice no matter the genre, and routinely reads all forms of speculative fiction, romance and erotica, thrillers, mysteries, contemporary (especially dark ones), and pretty much any random novel that transports her to another world. She’s followed the publishing industry for over a decade, though only had the courage to risk a professional move when she upended her life to move cross country from Texas to Philadelphia in 2012.
Before she started working in publishing, she regularly managed to read 150 books a year, and is still reading over a book a week this year despite the workload of her day job and editing. #Pitchwars adult mentor and #Pitchmadness industry advisor and first reader. Also a giant food nerd, and general geek.
Emmie was a 2015 PitchWars mentor for adult SFF. An avid reader of fantasy and science fiction since she discovered The Chronicles of Prydain, Emmie enjoys reading the whole gamut of SFF/speculative fiction and is a sucker for powerful voices, bittersweet endings, and moral grey areas. She also loves reading sex-positive erotica and romance to get her HEA fix. Emmie is an active SFWA member and the author of the Shrike series and the Ayala Storme series. She is still flailing due to Amber Benson (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame) being the Ayala Storme audiobook narrator. Emmie is the author of over ten novels and has read everything from the Babysitter’s Club to Nabakov’s Invitation to a Beheading. She has also read Pride and Prejudice in Polish.
A wanderlusty linguophile, Emmie has lived in three countries, two continents, and eight American states. She currently (and temporarily) lives outside Washington, D.C. with her partner in life and crime and two kitties called Willow and Tara for very important reasons. If you need to know how to tell your German vet that your anteater is ill, she’s your person. Emmie is susceptible to bribes of bubble tea, sushi, and pie. If you can’t find her in the US, she’s probably figured out a way to run away to Scotland.
KT Hanna has such a love for words, a single one can spark entire worlds.
Born in Australia, she met her husband in a computer game, moved to the U.S.A. and went into culture shock. Bonus? Not as many creatures specifically designed to kill you.
KT creates science-fiction, fantasy, and LitRPG like it’s going out of style, with a dash of horror for fun! She freelance edits for Chimera Editing, plays computer games, and chases her daughter, husband, corgis, cats, and snake.
No, she doesn’t sleep. She is entirely powered by the number 2, caffeine, Chipotle, and sarcasm.
Her debut novel: Chameleon (The Domino Project #1) released on August 4th, 2015.
Jami Nord Edited it.
Note: She is still searching for her Tardis.
