Welcome to a new client. My first from Canada! He's a refugee from another copy editor, who told him what words he could and couldn't use.

Excuse me?

I tell all my clients the same thing: My suggested changes are just that, suggestions. At the end of the day, it's your book. I will never tell you that you MUST accept my changes.

Jeez.

If your copy editor is too aggressive for you, it's time to look for a new copy editor.

Now scheduling April and later.
Self-publishing should still be quality publishing.

I gave up on my day job nearly two years ago after working 10 years for the second largest legal publisher in the world, where a raise meant only that they were moving my team up one floor in the building.

Now I copy edit for people who appreciate me.

Good luck with your writing!

Doglover,

You're a good friend.  Home-cooked meals and hand-knitted sweaters are lovely payment.

Doglover,

And who says I haven't?

Gone crazy, that is. ;)

Seriously, I love what I do.  I left a full-time position copy editing for the world's second largest legal publishing company, where a raise meant moving my team to a higher floor.  Now I work with people who thank me.  People who call me just to chat.  People who joke about asking WWJD? (What Would Julie Do?) as they write.  Can't beat it!

If you get tired of copy editing for your friend, feel free to send her my way. I've got a pocketful of substitutes for shrugs and a bushel of suggestions for "placed," "big," "somehow," and "sighed."

Now, take a deep breath, shrug, sigh, even roll your eyes, and move those commas around!
