A keen eye

As we get much closer to the end of fixes to the book's galleys, I'd like to say what an extraordinary experience it is to work with a fine editor who won't settle for less than the best. Here's what editor Molly Martin said:

"As I think about it, Annie, I'd recommend that you not send the book to be published until you are able to give it a good final read and have confidence in it.  The book does have your name on it, after all.  And down the road, a bit more of delay now will pale compared with un-fixed problems in the printed versions."

Molly worked with Lauren and I on content and its management for the ASA website.  She knows not only my voice but also my high standards.  Here she is reminding me about my integrity as well.  Who could ask for more in an editor?
