Frankie Blooding - Editor-in-Chief/Cover Artist

Frankie started Whistling Book Press to help other authors. Its been a passion of hers since she took over The Novel Workshop on Writing.com in 2002. Since then, she's been learning the industry and assisting other authors in any way she can while working a full-time job, juggling family, and crocheting. 

Don't be fooled, though. Frankie pushes hard. She'll have the tough conversations with you about your novel and she won't pull any punches. She's not the nice one.

Bryon Quertermous - Contract Editor

Bryon has over a decade of publishing experience that includes work with traditional stalwarts, such as Random House, as well as more cutting-edge operations like Harlequin’s digital-first imprint Carina Press and Amazon Publishing. His most recent position was as a commissioning editor for Angry Robot Books. Books he’s edited have been chosen as the best of the year by USA Today, Library Journal, and others.

He is wonderful to work with. His structural edits are in-depth and helpful. He is the kind of editor who prefers building the author up instead of tearing them down. He has a keen sense of structure and flow, and understands the nuances of genre fiction. He's an asset to any project.
