I had two editors on the last book, The Emerald Isle. As acquisitions editor, Lisa read it. As the substantive freelance editor, Rick read it. There are two stories in the book.
Can you see where this is leading? Yep–Rick preferred one story and Lisa preferred the other one!
From that I learned that 1) men and women have different tastes and 2) editing is often subjective. 🙂
Tomorrow: The results and reader reaction. Feel free to leave any questions you might have in the comments and I’ll answer them at the end of the week.
