Meet The Editors:

Wings of Fire, Spirit Animals and Horizon

Friday, April 21st, at 5:00pm EST

 


Join the Amanda, Zack, and Nick, the editors of three great Scholastic series, for one fantastic event! They will be live on camera answering YOUR questions. Go ahead and post question below over the next week, and we’ll make sure to ask them the toughest and most fun ones. You can ask about the books and characters, what it’s like to be an editor, and anything else—even how they like their PB&J! I hear that Nick likes to put anchovies on his . . . but it’s possible that I just made that up based on nothing.

 


We’ll also be taking live questions from chat, so make sure to stop by for the live show! If you can’t make it, don’t worry, the video will be available for replay immediately after the show.

 


So join us next Friday as I put the hard questions to the editors of your favorite series. Amanda, Zack, and Nick . . . Watch out!

 

Now give me a hand by posting the questions you want to see answered!

Not first

 

YAHS FINALLY A CHANCE TO TALK WITH THE EDITORS!!!!!!! *squeals* I really want to go into publishing (preferably editing MG fantasy) but it's hard to find information on how to actually do that. So here's my bunch:

 

How did you learn to edit? Did you take a class, have a mentor, or figure it out on your own/have a finely developed story sense?

 

What made you interested in editing? 

 

What's the path you took to become an editor?

 

How do you edit without interfering with the author's voice? Is it the author's job to stick up for their voice?

 

Do you have any weak spots in your editing skills that you rely on others to cover for you, like noticing like plot holes? (Not saying I've found plot holes in your work, just asking because I have some blind spots myself)

 

What's your average day like?

 

Have you ever freelanced editing? How did that go?

 

Nick, you wrote the Book of Shane (I love Shane's dreams, BTW). Do you think your writing skills are better because you edit? Did you write before you became an editor?

 

Amanda and Zack, do you write too?

 

I know each author gets a basic outline for the book they're assigned to write. What do these look like? How in-depth do they go?

 

How much and how widely do you read every year?

 

Do you have any tips for wanna-be editors? :)

 

I might post more later. Thank you!

Making decisions is easy. Living with them is a true test of courage.

Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light.

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.

@All: Do you sometimes get carried away with reading that you forget that your job is to edit what you're reading?

Do you sometimes feel like you are one of your favorite characters in the books?

How do you edit the books? Do you edit it chapter by chapter or wait for the whole book to be finished and then you edit it?

I know you probably wont answer this question due to spoiler purposes, but I'm gonna ask it anyways. Is there any hope of Shane being alive? I found his death scene a little strange and sudden, leaving too many loop holes where he could have survived. i would like to know whether I should dare to hope.

            Also, when are you going to release the excerpt for 'Heart of the land'?

Who do you ship? (Shipping is basically when you wish for 2 people to be in a relationship. For example, Reilin is a huge ship that is Rollan and Meilin.)
