Working as managing editor and digital director of an independent literary press for the past 6 years, I learned the ins and outs of ebook development, marketing and distribution. Prior to that I was an editor for major book publishers including Columbia University Press, Harry N. Abrams, Philosophical Library, and Warren, Gorham and Lamont.
As a graduate of “The Great Books Program” at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Md, which explores the texts most influential to the Western world, I happened to notice that only one book (by Jane Austen) was authored by a woman. And so I’m especially excited about this new way for women’s voices to shape the world. 10% off all my profits are donated to Afghan Women’s Writing Project.
