Editors

Series Editor

Nicole Petit is the Series Editor at 18thWall Productions. Every ongoing series is her domain, and kept well developed and well paced under her able hands. It’s not merely us saying this, Nicole was named #3 Best Editor in The Preditor and Editor Readers’ Poll 2016, and her anthologies—as well as stories from her anthologies—have been consistent award-winners, taking home awards as varied as Best Story, Best Cover (Pulp Ark New Pulp Award 2016), Best Artwork, and placing highly in Best Anthology (The Preditors and Editors Readers’ Poll 2016).

She writes because no other job lets her sleep until noon. Fantasy is her forte, a sliver of genre right between urban fantasy and fairy tales. The first book in her Magic Realm Manuscripts, The Dragon Lord’s Secretary, is available now.

Her collections are The Dragon Lord’s Library (a two-volume collection of the greatest new dragon stores, collected from the Dragon Lord’s personal library), Just So Stories (a volume dedicated to Rudyard Kipling’s magical explanations for the world), and After Avalon (a collection of Arthurian tales exploring what happened after Camelot fell). He upcoming collections include Speakeasies and Spiritualists (supernatural stories in the Roaring 20s, inspired by Rose Mackenberg—Houdini’s investigator), and an unique mystery anthology.

She joined the company when James told her “Write for us, and we’ll throw all the money at your face.”

Blog Coordinator

Sophie Iles is the Blog Coordinator, and she is British to boot. She’s renowned for constantly wearing odd socks, spiking her short hair to odds-defying heights, and bringing up Doctor Who at any given opportunity.

Lovingly referred to as a ‘Joan of all trades’ by friends, Sophie has been a production assistant, an unqualified teacher, a coffee shop barista, and A Build A Bear mascot—but her real passion is a love of characters, and how they develop in a well-woven tale.

Her worldly knowledge spans a cozylook on animation due to her arts degree to her untamed love of story-telling since she was given a amateur class in mythology by her wizen old grandmother.

Sophie can be reached on her Twitter, Tumblr, and by email. You can also find her currently hiding out in Cardiff, United Kingdo
