An Exciting Editor
Previously Editor at Macmillan
Before joining The Novelry, Georgia Summers was an Editor at Tor, an imprint of Macmillan, home to authors including Cassandra Clare, Olivie Blake, Adrian Tchaikovsky, TJ Klune, Arkady Martine and Travis Baldree.
At Tor, Georgia worked closely on a range of science fiction and fantasy books, from bestselling brand authors such as Cassandra Clare, Olivie Blake and TJ Klune, to debut authors such as Shelley Parker-Chan and Freya Marske. She was the commissioning editor for international bestseller Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree, as well as upcoming Daughter of Calamity by Rosalie M. Lin. Additionally, she oversaw reissues of the classic romantasy series Kushiel’s Legacy by Jacqueline Carey, which starts with Kushiel’s Dart.
Editor by day, fantasy author by night!
Georgia’s debut novel, The City of Stardust, was pre-empted in a significant, six-figure deal for two books to Hodderscape in the UK with US rights sold to Orbit. The City of Stardust (Hodderscape) bagged the number one spot in its launch week for hardback fiction.
Having experienced both sides of publishing as editor and author, Georgia understands the joys and challenges of the editorial process. During her time at Tor, she read hundreds of manuscripts, and knows what makes a compelling story, as well as how to hone those elements. She loves working with authors to help bring their vision to life and make it the very best it can be.
Georgia is half-British, half-Trinidadian, and spent most of her life living across the world, including Russia, Colombia, and the US. She has previously been a bookseller and rare books student librarian, so you could say she’s seen the entire lifecycle of a book.
