Donor Intros: Day Ten!

I'm going to have to start off this week's donor introductions with a quick mea culpa. Somehow today's first donor ended up between two "N" names on my Donors of Awesome spreadsheet. Maybe I decided it would be more interesting to alphabetize based on the the last letter in the last name. Who can say?

The main reason I'm bringing this up is to say that if any of our illustrious donors want to donate "rudimentary alphabet studies," know that I'll be a high bidder.

Now, down to the real business!

Jami Nord

Jami has interned for Entangled Publishing, Bree Ogden, and another NYC Agency she’s pretty sure is Voldemort, since she’s not allowed to say their name. She has experience handling extensive amounts of slush and evaluating hundreds of manuscripts in reports, and helps with #PitchMadness and #PitchWars. A love of books led her to a BA in English. She adores stories with a strong voice no matter the genre, and routinely reads all forms of speculative fiction, romance and erotica, thrillers, mysteries, contemporary (especially dark ones), and pretty much any random novel that transports her to another world. She’s followed the publishing industry for over a decade, though only had the courage to risk a professional move when she upended her life to move cross country from Texas to Philadelphia in 2012. She currently freelances as half of Chimeraediting.com.
