A narrative that feels like a memory to every writer...
Byline Legacies is a nostalgic collage of inspiration, candor, and comfort—snapshots of the moments we have experienced (or will experience) during our lives as creatives. Woven through fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, you’ll discover love letters to our greatest influencers, memoirs of our humble beginnings, anthems for our greatest triumphs, symphonies that praise our journeys, and heart-wrenching confessions of the times when we doubted ourselves and questioned what kind of legacy we were creating. Embrace your curiosity, awaken your inner creative, and remember the importance of your voice, your ideas, and why you fell in love with writing in the first place. This book is for all of us who have ever chased a dream that didn’t make sense to anyone else: find yourself within the prose and know that you are never truly alone.

Jaime Dill is a North Carolinian soul who grew up on a healthy mix of classics, poetry, and young adult fiction. She uses her broad editorial skill by helping other writers as a freelance editor and book coach through her own company, Polish & Pitch, established in 2018. Jaime is most appreciative of editing commercial fiction because it has allowed her to integrate her love of genre fiction with the technical skill gained during her studies as a Creative Writing student. “The line between literary and genre is one many people don’t like to toe, but crossing easily between the two allows imagination and skill to mingle and learn from each other without risk of cancelling each other out.”
Lizzie Thornton of Lady Lizzie Editing is a gifted book coach, developmental editor, and line editor, who enjoys working with a multitude of genres and characters but specializes in books that include strong female-identifying characters. Growing up in a transient military family, the world of literature was her solace. Then, while getting her Bachelor’s at the University of South Carolina, she discovered she thrived in the workshop-style classes. From this grew a love for reading works-in-progress and helping shape creative ideas into something brilliant. “When I read an author’s story that they’ve entrusted to me, I am dedicated and bound to amplifying their words. My purpose is not to change their art, but to help better position it in a gallery so more people can be swept away by it”.
