“A learning experience is one of those things that says, 'You know that thing you just did? Don't do that.”

The Salmon of Doubt
“The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.”

Jo Wilkins: Acquisitions
We are looking for almost anything in the way of a submission Scifi, Fantasy, Paranormal , and Horror. Jo is a content editor for both Ink & Quill and NewLink and will not read anything that conflicts with their submissions guidelines. Her main interests are science fiction, mystery, historical, memoirs and interesting educational material (but it has to have an interesting presentation). In the realm of Fantasy, she relies on the staff to evaluate a story's potential. Jo has done private coaching with over twenty authors.
Richard Draude: Graphics and IT Director
While working behind the scenes on book covers, and keeping our computers and servers running, Richard is also one of the people who reads through all our submission. As a writer of Science Fiction and an avid reader of Scifi and Fantasy, he offers valuable insight into a manuscript's potential.
Bridget Bliss: Editor
As a staff editor for Mystic Publishers Inc., I enjoy working with authors to hone their manuscripts for publication. A UNR grad and a Las Vegas native, I love working for a book publisher that is passionate about working with new and local authors. Prior experience in science and business as a technical writer a has given me insight into crafting a well-written document, especially when applied to book editing, and has allowed me to apply my business and technical skills to all aspects of book publishing. A background in geography and architecture has allowed me to see the world as uniquely connected place that is bound by space, perspective, perception and exploration and has consequently influenced my reading preferences. I enjoy reading non-fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy Fiction, History, Mystery/Suspense, and Exploration / Odyssey Epics.
Denice Whitmore: Managing Editor
Denice reads juvenile fiction, young adult, scifi, young adult paranormal romance and historical fiction as well. I have edited fantasy and mainstream literature. She does not like, nor will she read, submissions outside our guidelines, IE of erotica or those with excessive swearing. Denice looks forward to working with seasoned and new authors alike. She enjoys the editing process and loves being one of the first to read a good book.
