A New Job

I'm happy to announce that I've accepted the job of General Editor at Kalos Press, a literary imprint of Doulos Resources.

I've greatly enjoyed working with Doulos and Kalos on a freelance basis, and I'm delighted to have been offered a job on their staff!

I'll be doing work in acquisitions and in developmental editing, along with a few other tasks. We've got some great books in the pipeline and I'm excited to get to work on them.

I'll still be blogging here about books, faith, and family - that won't change!  I just wanted to share my good news with y'all. I so appreciate the fellow readers and writers, parents and bloggers, and brothers and sisters I've met through this blog.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

Congratulations! I wonder how your own writing process will change with the editing experience.

Thanks so much, Christine!

I've actually found that editing (freelance editing, at least) has been very helpful to my writing process. I think seeing publishing from the other side of the desk gives me some really useful insight.

Of course, my own writing work is in fiction, and my editing experience is in non-fiction, so not everything is applicable . . . but the truth is that I just love working with good books, and I'm delighted for any opportunity to work with good books some more!
