Hi, hello everyone! I’m Megan!
As I’m sure you know by now, I am an extreme lover of books and writing. I dedicate most of my free time to plowing through my TBR list and, when time allots, writing poetry, short stories, and books of my own. I live in Raleigh, North Carolina, where the winters aren’t deathly freezing (for the most part), and I am no longer forced to suffer the traumas of NYC public transportation (no, really, I have stories).
I now work at a publishing house where I market and publicize our author’s books, which is not only wonderful practice for writerly me, but it also means I have a lot of practical information to share with everyone!
I earned my degree in English, with concentrations in both creative and professional writing and a minor in theatre from Appalachian State University. After college, I was invited to attend the Columbia Publishing Course 2016 in NYC, which taught me about all things book-related. When the course was done, I moved to NYC and worked at a prominent literary agency, soaking up as much as I could about acquiring agents, negotiating book deals with publishers, and managing author careers. I made many wonderful friends on my adventures, which means I am now lucky enough to have familiar faces in agencies as well as editorial, marketing, and design departments. Many of them have their own bookish projects they are working on, which you might find featured here once in a while.
More than anything, I am a lover of the arts! Being an artist myself, I get a lot of enjoyment out of encouraging artists, supporting them, and sharing their incredible talent with the world. Pursuing art can be a daunting task that takes several years of hard, meticulous work before it pays off (if it ever does). Because of that, I will do what I can, where I can, to help cross-promote others’ work. That being said, if you or someone you know has a gift that you would like me to share on my page, please contact me through the contact form!
