I’m so excited to announce that I have accepted a publicity internship with Entangled Publishing. If all goes as expected, I’ll move into a full time publicity position in about six months.
Hey wait, I thought you wanted to pursue a writing career?
I still do! I have a novel with an editor right now that I’m hoping to submit to agents over the next couple of weeks. That dream isn’t dead or put to the side by any means. However, since creating the YA Fantasy Guide, I realized I love publicity. I have so much fun playing around with social media and interacting with readers that I really want to learn as much as I can from experts.
Why Entangled Publishing?
I originally found EP while reviewing young adult fantasy titles on Netgalley. I started to research and discovered an article about the founder, Liz Pelletier. EP is an exciting new take on eBook publishing, and quite frankly, I wanted to be a part of it.
What will you be doing for them?
Mostly, learning as much as I can from experienced publicists. My knowledge has been mostly self taught so I know I have a lot left to learn. If you want specifics, I know I’ll be helping out on their new blog and working with a new young adult writer that’s about to debut. Truthfully, I’d like to get my hands into every aspect of EP that I can.
What will happen to the YA Fantasy Guide?
Everything will continue as it always has. We will keep updating our reviews and recommendations, provide author and agent interviews, contests, and chats on twitter. Adding EP into my life just means more access to upcoming authors, editors, publicists, and books. Tehehehe, and don’t think for a minute that I won’t use that to my advantage. ;-p
