Holly Atkinson, Editor with Samhain Publishing
Join us at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, July 6, 2013, as Holly Atkinson, editor with Samhain Publishing, tells us what this popular publisher is looking for.Since she can remember, Holly Atkinson's professional ambition has revolved around fiction editing.She was fortunate to receive her first taste in editing when she was thirteen and wrote copy for a local realtor show.In 2008, Holly graduated from Missouri State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English, specializing in Creative Writing. Her first real job in the literary world came in the role of line editor for Lyrical Press.In 2011, she joined Mundania Press as a content editor and finally landed her dream job at Samhain Publishing in 2012.Holly describes herself as the quintessential book nerd. In her spare time, she writes erotic romance under a penname, though she hopes to produce more mainstream works in the future so the more conservative members of her family can read her work. She lives in Missouri with her husband, loves to travel, and goes a little crazy around the holidays.
Her largest writing influences include Pamela Smith Hill, Aaron Sorkin, JK Rowling, Stephen King, and Joss Whedon.
