    I posted this on my own blog to see if there’s any interest among my friends.

    You want proofers or editors because they’re seriously different animals. I know an excellent proofreader but she’s not as good at the big picture. :chicken: Boy, I hope she doesn’t stop by here and figure out I’m talking about her. :chair:

    I could write your acc/rejection letters. Dear Author . . .

    *snort* Nearly lost my soda at that one. I’m sure you’d be a very popular submissions editor, Jane 😉

  6. Jane June 11, 2007 at 2:10 PM #

    No, no, no. I don’t want to read the submissions. Just pen the letters.

    Jane, you made me snort laugh too. I recieved sweetest rejection letter today. Rejection never the less, but she also had nice things to say. I will put the letter into the encouraging file.
    No “Dear Author”, no “Can Not Use Your Work At This Time”, no”go away and never darken our doorways again”.

    Pay is currently royalty based.

    What is royalty-based payment? Do authors and editors split the royalty earned on books they wrote / edited?

    Are you still looking for final line editors as well?

    Hm. I guess it could be considered “splitting” since they’re getting a share of the 100%. But no, authors don’t have to “pay” the editors if that’s what you’re asking. Samhain pays them a percentage of the royalties. The authors make 40% and the editors make a percentage as well.

    Yes, we’re always hiring final line editors, you can apply at the same address, employment@samhainpublishing.com, if you’re interested.

    Thanks for clarifying it for me, Angie. 🙂

About Me

Angela James

There is nothing worse than writing a bio. And writing one for your blog sidebar? Blech. Maybe you landed here via Google, followed me from Twitter (does that make you a stalker?) or maybe we met at a conference or you clicked a link from a comment I made at a blog you visited. Hopefully whatever I said didn't make you so mad you came looking for a picture to throw darts at (yep, that's me up above, in my favorite cowboy hat) but instead drove you to find out more about the amazingly witty and intelligent person behind the amazingly witty and intelligent comment.

However you found me, who you found is Angela James, executive editor of Carina Press, Harlequin's new digital-first press. I'm passionate about digital publishing, my mission is to drag people to the digital dark side, one reader (and author) at a time. I'm also Brianna's mommy. At my blog you'll get an odd mix of personal and professional posts about parenting, publishing, books, cooking, sewing and life in general. Come back often, comment frequently and go green—buy ebooks!

Please note that this is my personal blog and my opinions are neither that of Harlequin, nor representative of their opinions.


Find Me Here

First, I blog once or twice a week at theCarina Press blog, talking about the job, the authors, the books and other things Carina Press. And, of course, you can always find me on Twitter. Or Facebook, if you prefer (mostly the same content, one feeds the other). I also run the Carina Press Twitter and Facebook accounts. Social media, it's where it's at (well, it's where I'm at, anyway).
