From the Publisher:

Carolyn Howard-Johnson's has appeared on more than 400 TV and radio shows. She has been a reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune, an editorial assistant at Good Housekeeping Magazine and written for assorted other magazines and papers including the Pasadena Star News, Glendale News-Press, Ingenue, Stereo, Home Decor Buyer. She was also a fashion publicist for Eleanor Lambert Agency in New York. She is also the founder of Authors' Coalition.

From the Author:

I was inspired to write this book because, as an editor and teacher, I could see something more practical and not quite so heavy (read that "texty") was needed. It does not supplant a good (I hope even great!) editor. It is intended to make a writer the best partner possible for the editor assigned to him or her or for the editor he or she may hire.
