It's been a pleasure working with you, too Joan. Thanks for the information and for getting us to think about editors and why we need them.

Thanks Joan. Found your experience and the comments great. Makes me realise again, how lucky we are here at Muse.

Thanks for the great blog, Joan. I agree, a great editor is worth their weight in gold! I was so thrilled to have two wonderful editors for my first book, Ghost Dog of Roanoke Island, due out in September. I hope I get to continue working with them. They made me think about my writing as well as made me feel good and confident with my story.
Thanks for the great blog.
