What do I expect from an author?

When you sign a new author, what do you expect from that relationship?
Here you go.

Obviously the answers to some of these will vary, but for example, at what point do they cross the "Becoming annoying" line as far as emailing you with questions?
It takes a lot for me to get annoyed, but I'll get frustrated when I get too many questions asking me to predict the future, or questions that I've already answered before.

What sorts of things do you like to be kept updated on, as far as new projects they may be working on or whatever?
I'm an advocate of full disclosure, though I try to limit comments or edits on works in progress to avoid suffocating my client's writing voice.

How patient are you/do you normally expect to be with authors new to the game?
I'd like to think I am very patient.
