Another editor in Irvine

May 20, 2008

From Thomas Dunne Books, a division of St. Martin’s Press, associate editor Katie Gilligan will be joining us in Irvine.  I haven’t updated the conference site yet to report the news because there’s still a couple other equally exciting confirmations pending, but that’s what makes readers of the blog so well informed.  What more can I tell you right now?  Katie is seeking “genuine” voices in fiction and nonfiction.  That and the fact she assisted with the editing of John Hart’s New York Times bestseller (and 2008 Edgar Award winner) Down River, which PW concluded thusly: “This book should settle once and for all the question of whether thrillers and mysteries can also be literature.”
