My book editor called me today. We talked for an hour about revising Whisper Falls. He has lots of suggestions, most of which I love. The rest are negotiable.
As my blog title says, I'm calling him a new friend. Do other authors use the same label? Do they think of their editors as friends? Is it purely a business relationship? Or somewhere in-between?
It may be too early to tell for us. But I do like his ideas, his enthusiasm, and how much he loves my book. I suspect we'll make a great team.
