Repeat after me: “I don’t remember much about the editing . . .”
Actually, I do. 🙂 Leslie Peterson was my excellent editor on this project, and she had several helpful suggestions, including the idea of placing a glossary in the book. I insisted that it go at the back, however, because I personally am put off by any book if I open it and see either a glossary or a chart of characters up front. I read primarily for entertainment, not to learn something (though I’m always delighted if I do!).
I do remember hearing one comment that filtered in from somewhere–someone suggested that I put in some scenes from Moses’ point of view. I demurred, because that would have defeated my entire purpose–to tell Moses’ story completely through the eyes of the women in his life.
Moses had lots of chances to tell his story in the Pentateuch. I figured it was time to give the women a chance to speak.
