Dani Black PA – Editor #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I am currently a stay at home mom. I have 6 kids, 2 of my own and 4 stepchildren. I love to read. When I am in a book slump I try to beat my own records of reading. HP in under 19 hours. GoT in about 36. I am a PA, editor, and make some graphics. I live on energy drinks, aka jet fuel. And believe pineapple belongs in drinks, not pizza.


How long have you been a PA and editor?

I have been a PA for about 3 months. An editor for 2. But I worked for the government where I edited letters, memos, orders, and requests for about 6 years.


Have you always wanted to be a PA or editor?

I have not. Although it is a good fit for me, being a PA, because I like making people’s lives easier.


What do you do as a PA? As an editor?

As a PA, I find, schedule, and run takeovers. I manage ARC and BETA groups. I promo the books. I look for NL swaps. As an editor, I try to make the authors books look and feel pretty. I make things flow and be consistent.

Dani animated the cover.


Do you have any quirks while working?

I have to have energy drinks and usually chips, unless my kids steal those. When I edit I listen to loud music in my headphones.


What are your hopes for the future?

I hope to expand my services and do more for my authors, PA wise. As an editor, I hope to one day be in a major publishing house.


Do you have any advice for new PA’s or editors?

For PAs, be friendly and outgoing. For editors, be confident and consistent. For both, don’t be scared to ask for help!


Are you available for new work or booked solid?

I am pretty booked for PA, but would try to help someone out if they really needed it. Editing, I will always take a book, negotiate the price, and keep my week guarantee.


I don’t have any links, but I have two logos. I made the phoenix and Mallory Kent made me the eye.
