We're pleased to introduce the second of our two new Assistant Editors to you today:
Laura Harvey is an editor, writer, bibliophile, horsewoman, historian, teacher, debate coach, nerd, DIY junkie, and occasional rescuer of kittens. She holds a BA, MA, and is ABD, making her an exceptional asset in Trivial Pursuit. She loves reading so much that all of her handbags share one crucial ability: fitting a standard paperback or Kindle. She lives in northern California with a menagerie of beasts (dogs, cats, horses, and family members).
Along with Assistant Editor Sarena Ulibarri and Editor-in-Chief Eileen Wiedbrauk, Laura Harvey will be reading queries for novels, novellas, serialized fiction, and single author collections in the open submission months of February, June, and September.
While we are open to all forms of fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction if they are done well, we asked Laura Harvey to share what sorts of speculative fiction projects she hopes to find in the slush this year:
I love smart and snarky speculative fiction, from mostly-this-world-with-just-a-tiny-twist to immersive high fantasy. Monsters, magic, fantastic realms and epic struggles keep me reading late into the night, and still turning pages over my morning coffee.
We're looking forward to seeing what her first projects will be when they hit the shelves late this year and early next! If you have something to submit, read through our guidelines before sending it in February, June, or September. In the meantime, follow her on Twitter @lauraharvey1535.

I always feel equal parts excited and terrified when I read what editors are looking for and what they can't stand. Good luck and I hope you find what you're looking for!

No need to fear us. We're really just ordinary folk who have taken our love of reading to extremes. And my guidelines are just that--guides. I always make exceptions for good writing.
