Unsung Heroes

I know I said, no blog this week, but my schedule changed so I am back from Ireland. More on that next week.

This week I want to write in praise of the unsung heroes and heroines of publishing. Editors. They are the backroom people, they work unstintingly behind the scenes to make us look really good. I have been so lucky with my editors at Whiskey Creek Press. I don't know how the Publishers manage to capture and retain these clever folk, but they do and praise be for that.

Presiding over them all is the Senior Editor who is supremely efficient. If I had one ounce of her efficiency I would be a very happy bunny. However, I live in my head - and that is in the clouds most of the time. I really need these wonderful people to keep me on track.

So - ladies - and gentlemen - wherever you are - we love you, we appreciate you and most of all congratulate you.

Margaret,
Thank you so much for your kind comment about the Whiskey Creek Press General Line Senior Editor. I am that Senior Editor and I take great pride in our books and authors. :) And your book, His Other Wife, is one great story.
Cordially,

Thank you, Marsha. I am so glad that you identified yourself. I did not feel it was my right to name you but now everyone knows who that wonderful editor is. Fantastic.

Margaret.

So wonderfully well said, Margaret. I love my editors at WCP. They polish and tweak and make me feel like I'm putting my best foot forward. They make me shine and there's just no way to thank someone enough for doing that.

I love this post! Looking forward to hearing about Ireland, too. :)
