August 18 – Amanda Barnett

Meet the Editor

Amanda Barnett, Senior Editor, from the Wild Rose Press will be discussing the do’s and don’ts of how to get and keep an editor’s attention—for both published and unpublished authors—as well as choosing the best point of view for your work. Remember even though an author may be published, it does not necessarily guarantee a new contract.  And for those who are not published, this is a good way to learn why some editors reject a manuscript from the query and synopsis stage, and what makes an editor rush to contract from the first few pages.


Amanda Barnett loves to read and to edit. She has been in the publishing world in one capacity or other since 2000. Presently she enjoys being a senor editor at The Wild Rose Press for the Fantasy line. She loves working with authors and helping them to fine-tune their work.  Her joy comes when she too sees the finished product of a writer’s heart, and she loves to help them achieve their dreams.
