A HOPE DIVDED by Alyssa Cole! I just finished reading it, and can't wait to see how readers respond when it comes out in November. #LxPChat

Ultimately I'm looking for fun, entertaining, heartfelt stories with complex characters. With a fresh take. #LxPChat

My favorite part is... well... editing! Reading and working with the manuscript to make it the best it can be. #LxPChat

Q6 How do editors work with authors to bring their story to life? @normajeanesays #LxPChat

In short: communication. I read and respond to their writing: asking questions, making suggestions, and being their cheerleader. #LxPChat

Q4 Do you accept queries from agentless authors? @normajeanesays #LxPChat

I do accept queries from agent-less authors. With that said, the stronger the query, the more likely I'll keep reading. #LxPChat

Q3 Where do you look to find new talent? @normajeanesays #LxPChat

Easiest place to look is my inbox, reading submissions from agents and writers. Attending conferences. Pitch events like #DVpit. #LxPChat
