All About Anne Scott

Anne Scott was not a particularly early reader, but she was enthusiastic. After discovering Enid Blyton, she went on to love such series as Anne of Green Gables, Little Women and The Black Stallion, not necessarily in that order. In her teens and twenties she read a lot of CanLit, classics and mainstream lit, until she rediscovered genre—science fiction, fantasy and romance—and didn’t look back. Though she still reads the occasional mainstream novel.

A number of years ago, Anne realized that not only did she love reading, she also loved getting into the nitty gritty of editing. In 2006, Samhain Publishing hired her on and she has been loving her job ever since.

When Anne isn’t editing, she tries to get away from her computer and out of doors: skiing, biking, hiking and swimming. She lives in southern Ontario and loves the change of seasons.

Some of her favorite novelists include Patricia Briggs, Laura Kinsale and Megan Whelan Turner. She has edited such authors as Vivian Arend, Moira Rogers, Alex Beecroft and Lauren Dane.

Real life vs fiction

By On Apr 23 2007, 11:00 am

Fiction and real life are not quite the same. I know, it’s an obvious statement. But I do find it fascinating when I realize that what makes good fiction is not necessarily “real life”. The best and most obvious example is dialogue. If you were to transcribe real dialogue, often it would be meandering, repetitive [...]

I’m going to talk about the submissions in my inbox. This is my process, not necessarily anyone else’s. I like to read the introductory letter, get a little more information than just the name and title, although I don’t want a huge essay. Before going into the manuscript, I want to know the genre. I’ll [...]
