A clarification

In my previous post, I wrote about my meeting with an independent book editor. I met with her to discuss whether she could help me with The Devil You Don't Know.

During that discussion, we talked about whether the subject matter of my book might make it more difficult to publish. She said that it might, and we talked about ways to get around that potential problem.

A couple of people I've corresponded with seemed to feel the editor was out of bounds by giving me her opinion. She was not. I was the one who brought it up, since I've been worrying about it for some time. She only answered me honestly. And, in fact, we had a fruitful conversation about how to deal with the issue. For that, I'm grateful.

I just wanted to set the record straight. Hey, it's the journalist in me. Have a great weekend.


  1. I would rather know what someone really thinks as opposed to sugar coating things and dancing around and issue. But that's just me.

  2. You are MUCH better off with an Editor that will be HONEST with you.

  3. Gina & Mel: I totally agree. I hope things work out with her and I can start inching forward again!

  4. Plus ... I don't want to piss her off if she stumbles across this blog! ;)
