No, not "my" book - an anthology with one of my poems in it. Maybe someday a book of my own, but not yet. Not ready yet. Maybe never. I was proud of having the poem chosen to be in the anthology, though. It's a book written by and about hungry and/or homeless people - and all proceeds go to shelters and food banks and the like. The name of the book is "Empty Shoes."
LOL She'd get along fine with Mr.PFnV.
Every once in awhile I'll get a poem accepted by some magazine and the editor will want extensive changes made - generally I just get irritated and pull the entire poem. I can't imagine what doing a book would be like.
Good editors are really important, though. They can be the difference between a successful book and a failing one. I'd never have the patience - occasionally someone will ask me to help them on a poem or story they are stuck on - and the improvement needed always look crystal clear to me but getting them to agree with me is something else entirely. LOL It takes a lot more tact and diplomacy than I possess to edit anything or anyone.
And deadlines just plain suck.
First, MS Flex asked me to say thanks for the words of congratulations, she appreciated them.
About the editor, she was about twenty five maybe her first job out of college, she new nothing about the subject matter and would constantly ask for the manuscript to be changed, take weeks sometimes months to edit it, then turn around and say i need the re-write in a week or so because of a dead line. I obviously didn't deal directly with her but we both thought she was very unprofessional.
