In Good Hands: An Interview with an Editor

This post is geared toward authors, so if you're not an author, feel free to explore all the other posts on this blog. If you're not an author and find yourself interested in a behind-the-scenes look, read on!

If you've been following my blog over the years, chances are good you've heard me mention my editor, and with good reason. The process of publishing would not be nearly as enjoyable without her along for the ride. Lorraine Fico-White, Senior Editor and Owner of Magnifico Manuscripts, has been with me since book one in 2012.

I remember how arrogant I was thinking I knew everything I needed to know about getting a book ready for publishing. What a humbling experience it was when I discovered just how much I didn't know. For example, she would point out the last two sentences had too many "ing" words, and she'd be right. In the years since, I've learned a tremendous amount from both Lorraine and other members of her editing team, because it does take a TEAM to publish a book.
