The Greatest Gift is in the second round of edits. (Cobblestones Press's standard practice is three rounds.) Waiting for edits is a nervous thing. I always wonder how the editor will like the book, what they will suggest. With all my Cobblestone stories, it's been a wonderfully positive experience.
It's important to remember that your editor is also a reader. For this reason, she's providing invaluable feedback. I'm always amazed by how much better my story is after editing, even though most of the changes have been minor.
This editor is fast! At this rate, edits will be finished by the weekend. Then I get to look forward to the cover.
