Alison “Ellie” Heller
I’m Alison “Ellie” Heller Auerbach. Known around the web as Alison Heller, Ellie Heller & EllieWrites2. I currently work as an acquisitions editor for Curiosity Quills Press and my writing has taken a back seat.
If the front page is down, here’s the bits you’ll want to check out:
Links - good place to look for sites that hold writing contests as well as other useful tips.
My blog - not as busy as it once was, but there’s still some helpful posts hanging about.
Editing Services - new project. We’ll see how it goes!
Of course it’s very likely if you get this page, you won’t be able to get to the others but I’m optimistic. In the mean time, let me show you a pretty picture:
Using my given name I work as an Acquisitions Editor for Curiosity Quills Press and used to blog about what I’m learning in the process. I also attempt to give advice to improve the chance of moving out of the slush pile. You can find my wish list here, and you can follow me on twitter at AlisonReads2. I am also launching a content editing service. More information on this soon.
Sometime in my youth ‘Alison’ somehow morphed into “Ellie”. Not quite sure how the nickname came about but it stuck for a while.
Under Ellie Heller I wrote fantasy and paranormal romance stories. “Stories tingling with magic, romance and suspense.” (the order changed depending on what book I’m talking about.) Or at least I used to write. Like the arm chair quarterback who thought they’d be good at playing, turns out I am better at editing than writing so I’m concentrating on that for now.
My blog handle and url name. On my blog I talk about pitch and query contests and thoughts on the process of putting your writing out there. Don’t forget to check out my list of other writing blogs I follow as well as links to sites which hold contests frequently.
