Work experience

Acquisitions Editor

Self-employed

October, 2010 – Present (over 6 years)

I'm in charge of evaluating the manuscripts forwarded to me by the publishing house and deciding whether they'll soar or bomb upon publication. Storyline, pace, characterization, serialization, originality, current trends in the genre, likely reaction of the target audience... I take all those aspects into account and produce a final report that the publishing house will use to decide whether the author's work is worth a shot or not. I've done this work both for unpublished manuscripts, and for translation rights of published works.
