Holly Atkinson

Holly Atkinson – Editor

Experienced fiction editor, formerly with Samhain Publishing. I specialize in romance and other genre fiction.

Overview

I have worked with numerous authors in a professional capacity, including New York Times and USA Today best sellers. My editing style falls under the “firm but fair” heading. I prefer to nurture where possible to encourage author growth, and believe in maintaining a fun environment. That said, I’m not afraid of the red pen of death, and will use it without mercy if needed.

Most importantly, I am a proponent of maintaining your author voice. The book is yours, and it should still sound like it’s yours by the time we complete the editing process.

I operate on the philosophy that the relationship between editor and author should be collaborative and educational. We have the same goals — that is, we all want the book to succeed.

Samhain Publishing, Ltd

Sep, 2012 — Feb, 2016 (over 3 years)

I was responsible for reading romance manuscript submissions for publication. I made contract offers, conducted thorough content edits on the manuscript, served as the author's go-between with the publisher, managed art and cover copy forms, updated marketing content, and so on.

In the last year or so of the company's existence, my role reduced dramatically due to cutbacks and industry instability. In February 2016, we received word that the company would be closing. A couple months later, this announcement was rescinded, and I was approached about coming back as a freelance contractor, wherein I would only edit manuscripts. This relationship lasted until February 2017, when the owner decided to close shop for good.

Mundania Press

Mar, 2011 — Oct, 2012 (over 1 year)

I provided developmental edits on books that had been contracted by the publisher.

Lyrical Press

Aug, 2010 — Mar, 2011 (7 months)

I provided line edits to manuscripts prior to publication.
