-- removing page numbers from TOC
-- removing decorative graphic lines around quotes

COWCATCHER Publications specializes in truly amazing true stories. My work as a co-author has been previously traditionally published, which means I've worked with various editors over the years.

“Better communication would have eliminated the problem I had with this contractor. This was my first time working with an elance contractor and I thought I described my proofreading and editorial needs in the project description with enough clarity. However, when I read her comments, I knew there had to be a misunderstanding. I was not happy with her excessive and unnecessary edits with regard to my character's dialect. Her comments and revision suggestions did not ring true to my character's voice, whose first language, by the way, is not English. Because this book is a memoir, it was important to convey this man's NAVAJO-ness, which is often stilted language. On the other hand, so much of what she did was professional and spot-on that I feel awkward making an unfavorable statement. The truth is, this editor gave my manuscript a great deal of attention, for which I am grateful. She did a very thorough job. As with any editorial feedback, when I disagreed with her comments, I ignored them. But in order to do that, I had to read through and consider all of them. Clearly, I got my money's worth.”
“Editing is a professional job and yes, it does require going through it line by line, page by page. The voice of WIl was not the problem-the story is an excellent story, but was so disjointed that it was difficult to follow. The inconsistentcies and repetition of the author vs.Mr. Yazzi had to be brought together.
I stand behind my work and wouldn't have done it any differently. ”
