Bio:

Amanda Jean is an editor, podcast host, and writer. She grew up devouring het romance novels and shifted to LGBT romance as a teen when her thirsty queer nature revealed itself. Amanda has worked with Ylva Publishing, Bella Books, and Less Than Three Press and serves as an Articles Editor at Strange Horizons and as the LGBT Director at Alternating Current. Projects she acquired or edited have garnered nominations and awards (Rainbow Book Awards, Bisexual Book Awards, Golden Crown Literary Awards, and the Tiptree shortlist, among others) and have been featured on Cosmopolitan.com, Pride.Com, the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog, Pride.com, and in USA Today’s Happy Ever After column. When she’s not wrangling manuscripts or co-hosting podcasts like The Red Pen with Austin Chant, you can find her watching documentaries, reading too many books on true crime, and caring too much about fictional characters.

Bio:

Matthew Bright is a writer, editor and designer who is uncomfortable writing in the third person, but soldiers on regardless. His short fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in a number of venues, including Tor.com, Nightmare’s Queers Destroy Fiction, Glittership, Harlot Magazine, Clockwork Iris, Queen Mob’s Teahouse and others. He is the co-author of Between The Lines, an experimental novella, with Christopher Black. He is also the editor of several anthologies, including The Myriad Carnival, Threesome: Him, Him and Me, Clockwork Cairo: Steampunk Tales of Egypt and forthcoming titles Gents and A Scandal in Gomorrah. With the release of Threesome, Publishers Weekly declared him ‘unambiguously…an editor to watch’, which is a quote he’s inclined to have printed on business cards and hand out to complete strangers on the street. By day, he pays the bills as a book cover designer in Manchester, England.
