Tell-Tale Press is a woman-owned business catering to the horror, science fiction, fantasy, and mystery genres in fiction writing.
Andrea Dawn has extensive experience as a technical editor and writer since 1998, fueled by a B.A. in English with an emphasis in literature and creative writing. She ventured into fiction editing in 2016 through her work with independent publishers and writers. She has been heavily involved in creating both award-winning and four- and five-star novels and anthologies.
Her previous work includes writing and editing public and classified documents for government agencies and corporations. She used her education to design documents and making them legible in layman's terms for the general public. She's written reports, proposals, Standard Operating Procedures, and procedural documents for OSHA, DEQ, USACE, and USAF, among others. She also works as a Transcriptionist and has been employed by such agencies as the SyFy Channel, IBM, WWE, UFC, NASA, the Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, government branches, and various Fortune 500 companies. From 2004 to 2014, Andrea published the blog For the Tennessee Walking Horse and was nearly instrumental in bringing the illegal practice of soring of the popular horse breed to the public.
Tell-Tale Press also employs multiple editors, readers, and workers to help with copy edits, slush reading, and setup and operation of our booths at conventions and events. Our thanks go to Aysheh Antuono, Christine Morgan, Dutch, Evan Romero, Jimmy Pudge, Jonathan Butcher, T.J. Tranchell, and Valerie Tvedt for their commitment and support in making Tell-Tale Press a success.
