Yes, it's true, I have managed to send yet another editor screaming for the exits. My Dear Dominatrix has left for greener pastures, along with my Acquiring Editor. Sigh. She said, "Look at it this way: everyone who works with you ends up getting a promotion." See why it is impossible to hate her, despite her cruel whip-cracking editing style? She is eternally nice and optimistic. We will miss her . . . . and wonder who on earth will be sent to torture us now???
