I am not the only one who has suffered through multiple editors. A quick survey of other authors in The Liars Club after a reading at Barnes & Noble revealed that the malaise is widespread. Lots of turnover, people job-hopping as the only way to get salary increases. One of the writers, Jon McGoran, whose pen name is D.H. Dublin, had the whole audience laughing with his witty reading from his new crime novel, Freezer Burn. Guess his work didn't suffer much after all those editors futzed with it!
