Introductions All Around…

A little less than a month has gone by since we launched LitMatch.net. The response has been fantastic, and we’re very excited about the feedback and positive comments we've gotten in this short amount of time. We decided it was high time we introduced ourselves, so without further ado…

Christopher Hawkins, President and Lead Developer
This is me, a writer and web developer from the Chicago area. I’ve spent the last decade building and managing websites for publishers and retailers, along with working on my writing and learning about the publishing industry. I built LitMatch to help writers connect with agents, get organized and get published.

Kris Matsumura-Hawkins, Data Governance Manager
Kris is the heart and soul of LitMatch, and as some of you may have gathered by the similarity in our names, my wife. She’s an APICS certified supply chain professional who’s pursuing a Six Sigma greenbelt (and though she’s explained it to me a dozen times, I’m still not sure exactly what that means.) She’s responsible for overseeing the completeness and accuracy of our listings. It’s a full time job all on its own, and she does it with grace and style.

Cesar Puch, Designer
Cesar is a writer, editor, and web designer extraordinaire. If it looks good on LitMatch, it’s all Cesar’s doing, and we think the site looks pretty darn good! He lives in Peru where he teaches English and writes horror stories. He also runs a web design firm called Tags & Scripts.

We hope you’ll check out www.litmatch.net, see what we’re all about, and help spread the word. While you’re there, be sure to sign up to receive our monthly newsletter and start tracking your submissions online. We think you’ll be glad you did.

Sincerely,

Christopher Hawkins
