We currently have openings for:


Content Editors We are looking for qualified content editors. Please submit resumes and letter of interest to publisher@entrancedpublishing.com

Line Editors We are looking for qualified line editors to polish manuscripts before publication. Please submit resumes and letter of interest to publisher@entrancedpublishing.com

Is this a job that can be done through telecommunication? If not, where is it located?

The job is telecommuting. We are located in Minneapolis, but as an epub, we have the luxury of telecommuting.

FabricatedParadise: One publisher with an active presence here, Carina Press/MsCelina, had a blog post last year that seems to me to be a pretty good guideline:

http://carinapress.com/blog/2011/06/...ntent-editors/

It's not an exact reply, since that is just one organization's requirements. But it should give you a starting point.

We are switching servers (switching from windows to unix) this weekend which has caused some downtime with email addresses. Sorry for the inconvenience. Go ahead and PM me. ETA for email addresses to be back up is tomorrow afternoon as soon as the server recognizes the redirect.

To answer the above question about requirements for editors, we do expect some experience. We prefer at least one year of paid editing experience (freelance or otherwise), experience with eBooks and ePublishing, an understanding of the romance and/or erotica markets since our editors are involved in the acquisitions process.

We also have a brief test that gives a feel for your experience and editing style.
