At my publisher, The Wild Rose Press, October 31st is the day we treat our editors and artists with thanks. Editors are so important, because they catch grammar issues, repetitive words, and alert us authors when we need more heat, more emotion, or more showing. Artists are able to take our stories and give them a visual feel. Since I know that I am not an artist, I am supremely grateful for how they are able to piece together a cover from my descriptions of places or people.
I’ve had the same editor since I began at The Wild Rose Press, and I am supremely grateful for her guidance and patience with me.
