I do have editorial experience. I've been editing two years at Salt Publishing, and have been a magazine editor, on and off, since 1995. For instance, up until I became involved with the launch of Embrace, I was editor-in-chief of Horizon Review, a respected online arts journal that has published a series of major names in its first four issues. It's true that my editing experience has been literary, rather than popular fiction, but I'm not sure how that would disadvantage me. I come from a family of writers, and my father was chief sub-editor on The Times for many years.
