About the Editors
Karen Brown is a multipublished, bestselling mystery and romantic thriller author and editor, with more than two decades of experience in fiction publishing. When she’s not thinking up new ways to murder her characters, she edits manuscripts for Amazon Publishing and Chanticleer Reviews, helping authors polish their stories.
Virginia Herrick is owner of Kestrel’s Way Editorial Services, specializing in editing book manuscripts for authors and publishers. She brings a decade of experience working with New York publishing companies to her present passion: applying her professional-grade persnicketiness to the works of indie-published authors and hybrid publishing companies.
When she’s not out hiking or kayaking, Pamela Beason spends most of her days working on the next novel in one of her three mystery series. Her books have been published by four different traditional publishers, but these days she is dedicated to indie publishing. She has edited and formatted book manuscripts for traditional nonfiction and fiction publishers as well as for many self-published authors, and has worked on occasion as a ghost writer.
