A Good Rant

No, not from me. From Moonrat over at Editorial Ass.

Definitely a good rant. Yikes. Isn't there some good advice out there for that author about not burning bridges?

I've seen this happen many times, and not just in publishing.

That author's disrespect for a good editor likely carries forward to his treatment of other people, too. I'd hate to run into him if I was a store clerk.

Linky love from Agent Jonathan! Sweet!

*smooches*

I said it at Moonie's, I'll say it here: right or wrong, a writer needs to decide which changes to their MS they can live with and what they can't BEFORE they enter into any kind of contract: agent or editor.

A lot of agita on both sides can be avoided if writers ask pointed questions FIRST.
