Let's begin with editorial changes. Tara Kelly sold two books in 2014 and is stepping away from editorial duties to focus on her writing and other pursuits. Look for ENCORE and FOXGLOVE both coming in 2015/2016 from Entangled Publishing. Congratulations, Tara. We wish you all the best! Elizabeth Richards is going on a temporary editorial hiatus, but will continue to be around as our webmaster and internet consultant. She plans to return to MCS editing in a few months. We'll keep you posted :)
That leaves Jessica Spotswood and me as editors for the time being. Both Jess and I are very excited to work with our MCS clients, but we both also sold multiple books in 2014 and our plates are quite full. That means--you guessed it--we're on the prowl for another editor. We've been talking to some interested parties and we'll share more details once someone officially comes aboard. In the meantime, please continue to send us your submissions, but realize that full manuscript critiques might take a bit longer than they normally do.
We've made a couple small price adjustments to our fixed package prices, but are pleased to tell you that our hourly rate for larger critiques will remain the same for 2015 ($30/hr or $25/hr for students with valid ID).
Happy reading and writing. We wish you all the best in 2015.
