About

“Jaym Gates was exactly what our organization needed in a PR officer — someone who knows the PR field and knows how to get attention — the right kind of attention — for our members, events and initiatives.”
John Scalzi

Short Version!

Hi, I’m Jaym. I’ve been an editor, author, and project manager in the publishing and gaming worlds for almost a decade now, with significant forays into the nonprofit world along the way. I’ve edited a few anthologies, had a few short stories published, and innovated a few processes and social media ideas.

I am currently a freelance developmental and copy editor. I manage Nisaba Press for Green Ronin Publishing, and am a (lapsed) acquiring editor for Falstaff Books. I am also writing RPGs and short fiction, and am currently a judge for the Canopus Award.

In my spare time, I train horses, practice a martial art called Systema, go shooting with friends, cook, play board games, and drink far too much tea.

I am available for editing and project management queries. If you’d like to get in touch with me, please email me at jaym (dot) gates at gmail, or feel free to follow me on Twitter as @Jaym Gates.

My anthologies include: RIGOR AMORTIS, BROKEN TIME BLUES, WAR STORIES, GEEK LOVE, GENIUS LOCI, STRANGE CALIFORNIA, UPSIDE DOWN, INVISIBLE WOMEN, LEGENDS OF STRATEGY: HOW STAR WARS EXPLAINS FUTURE STRATEGY, ECLIPSE PHASE: AFTER THE FALL, EXALTED: TALES FROM THE AGE OF SORROWS, and VAMPIRE: ENDLESS AGES. I’m also an editor at Falstaff Books, working on the Broken Cities shared-world novellas.

My fiction and nonfiction has appeared in Aether Age, Kaiju Rising, HEROES!, Dirty Diamonds, Lost Citadel, The Munchkin Book, Goldfish Grimm, Grendelsong, and in various academic outlets. I also have a collection of short fiction out from Falstaff Books, titled Shattered Queen. I’ve also written for the RPGs FIREFLY: SMUGGLER’S GUIDE TO THE RIM, BLUE ROSE 2nd Ed., TIANXIA: Blood, Silk, and Jade, and will soon be resuming work on the Lost Citadel RPG.

I have worked with organizations including the Syria Airlift Project, The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Paizo Publishing, Amazon Publishing, and many authors and small presses. I’ve gotten to present at the Atlantic Council, the 100 Year Starship Symposium, Stanford Law School, and a number of conventions.
