Colleen Lindsay
Community Manager, Penguin Group (USA)

Website | @colleenlindsay

Colleen Lindsay is part of the business development team at Penguin Group (USA), where she is community manager of BookCountry.com, a new online workshopping community where genre fiction writers (science fiction, fantasy, mystery, thriller and romance) can upload original work for critique by their fellow writers. Launched in May of 2011, the site has already resulted in a success story for BookCountry.com member Kerry Schafer, whose community-workshopped book BETWEEN was acquired in a two-book deal by Berkley this past January. Colleen served as the director of publicity for Random House’s Del Rey Books for five years, where she specialized in the creative promotion of SF/F, licensed media, pop culture non-fiction, and graphic novels; most recently she worked as a literary agent focused on debut genre fiction writers. Colleen has called the book industry home since 1984.
