My Editor Quit.

March 11, 2011

Yes you read that right.

Why?

If you go by what my publisher says the guy says it needs too much work and he doesn’t have time to devote to it.

If you go by the red markings in the text the guy seems to think I write awful sentences that don’t make sense.

What do I think? At the risk of sounding mildly rude. I’m not sure the guy knows what he is talking about.

See here is my reasoning and correct me if I am wrong but if my work was that bad then why in heavens name can anyone possibly get through reading it. And why on earth would any professional publisher want to put the effort into publishing it?

Then while were on the topic of professional. How does the editor think he’s helping by writing comments like “awful sentence”, “I don’t know what you are saying” and “it doesn’t even make any sense”.
Shouldn’t you be telling me what I need to do to fix it? Telling my why it doesn’t work?

I don’t know I have never been down this road before so I can’t even begin to tell you what I should be thinking at this point in the game but I can tell you how I honestly feel about the way its being treated by the editor.

I’m not saying I am perfect folks. Really I honestly know I am not anywhere close to it. I know my book needs a lot of work but surely it can’t be as bad as this guy is claiming it is.

I don’t know what else to say. Really I don’t. My publisher is working on finding me another editor so we are at a stand still for the time being. The cover is looking beautiful. We are almost done there.

Busy weekend. Fun in store for the hubby and I. I’m going to take him out tomorrow for our anniversary date. An afternoon at the ROM and a nice dinner at a steakhouse. No kids šŸ™‚

Ahh well almost at the office!

Until tomorrow…
