Give Your Editor a Little Well Deserved Praise

Today, editors are in the spotlight. How many editors do you know deserving of a lot of praise? We all know a few so come on out and give your editor the spotlight. Tell us why you can’t live without them. Why is your editor special? What credentials do they have? Why do their edits stand out? What manuscripts have they edited? How about awards? Are there any award winning editors you want recognized?

Give us their name. Tell us where they edit. Let’s see some glowing editor reviews!

Hugs,

Destiny

Hey Destiny!
I'd like to send out a big thank you to one of my editors at ShadowFire Press. Jeremy Black's a real pleasure to work with--professional with a fun sense of humor. He makes me feel like I'm a valued member of the Shadowfire family. Thanks, Jeremy. And thanks Shadowfire!

Thanks Gwen. I'll be sure to let Jeremy know, or you can feel free to email him yourself.

As a publisher, I know the true value of an editor. I have a great editorial staff right now at Echelon Press. I would however like to give much deserved praise to my Sr. Editor Kat Thompson. Kat has been with us for a very long time and she does a great job of keeping all my other editors in line and organized, but her skills as an editor deserve praise.

Kat has a very keen eye for finding the small things and noticing content issues that so many editors overlook. She is great with the technical stuff, but not at the expense of the mundane issues like grammar and puncuation.

I would be lost without her and I hope that every author she's ever woprked with knows how lucky they are!!

I know she one of the best thigs to ever happen to me and Echelon.

My editor, Laura Garland, is da bomb. I've been in this business for over twenty years, but Laura has a knack for making me think in a different mode. The Darkness of Sable came out at Passion in Print August 2010. It's a great novel, but with Laura Garland's feedback, suggestions and encouragement, the novel transformed from great to stellar.

Tess MacKall, is the editor in chief. She calls 'em like she sees 'em. Professional is her middle name. I'm honored to be a part of Passion in Print and I tip my hat to a damn fine editing staff!

Great topic. I'd like to find an editor who resonates with my writing, in case, I decide on publishing some Indie books.

One of the best editors I've had was Jeanne Cooper, who works with Liquid Silver Books. I believe she also said she worked with Wild Rose Press.

My editor at Aspen Mountain Press was great. However, I don't recall her name.

At Siren-BookStrand, so far, I don't know who my editors are... maybe I've sent them scurrying in some cases. However, whoever edited WHEN A GOOD ANGEL FALLS, I feel did an outstanding job.

I've learned a great deal from all of my editors and I truly appreciate it... even when I totally disagree. All the editors have brought valuable info to the table, which, of course, only helps me as an author.

I DO WANT my books to be the best they can be. I work hard at achieving that. Any editor who helps me achieve that, I am very grateful for and to.
