Another Editor Gone!

Okay, this one really takes the cake. Beloved, non-dominatrix UK editor is also departing.
What is it with all this job-hopping?
Either editors are the most ambitious people who breathe air, or publishers are not paying these people properly!!

New Editor Seems Smart -- But Is She Secretly Evil?

I spoke to my third editor today and she seems very smart and savvy and helpful. Of course we all know she could have a split personality that only comes out when she reads with a red pen in her hand. She too could don the black leather boots and rawhide whip and lash me repeatedly . . .

anyway the paperback is coming out in February on the anniversary date of the hardcover, and she says everybody is excited about it and that they are definitely changing the cover.

Why do they do this? I mean, as soon as Mel Gibson and Nicole Kidman make the movie, they are just going to have to change it again, the sillies!!
