Editor Leah Hultenschmidt Starts Blog

Leah Hultenschmidt*, an editor with Dorchester, has been listening to readers concerns about the poor state of publisher websites. In response, she’s started a blog/site of her own to feature Dorchester books she is editing or has edited in the past and books she’s bought and that are slated for publication in the future. She said she would also share, via the blog, as much insider information that she could without getting in trouble.

So if you are an aspiring writer, you might want to check out her thoughts on editing and if you are a reader, like me, you can check out the blog to see what’s new, what’s coming and what the heck goes on inside a publishing house.

*Leah edits Eve Kenin, which was, I think, how I came to know her.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Dear Ms. Hultenschmidt,
    My name is Onsy Elshamy. I came across this website while doing some research. I am a first time author, and I will be attending the writer’s convention at the Jacob Javitz Center this Wednesday the 27th. I read what you’re looking for, complete manuscripts in the romance genre(s). I don’t know what to expect at this convention, but I do know that your name is on the top of my list of people I am eager to meet. I am more than confident my novel fits in with what you’re looking for, and will be one of the first in line to speak with you.
