Hi. I'm really new to this whole publishing thing (I just published my first book on kindle about two weeks ago). I overheard someone (yes, I was eavesdropping...I know, I"m a bad person) talking about their book being available by print on demand through Amazon. I might have asked them about it, but my friend and I were leaving (and yes, I was ignoring my friend to eavesdrop on someone else...I am a very bad perosn).

Does anyone here know anything about Amazon and print on demand? Good? Bad? ...Ugly?

Yes, overediting is possible.  Overediting is also bad editing.  And anyone can overedit:  the author as well as an editor. 

A writer should step back from any draft for a week or so, then view the work with fresh eyes.

A good editor will always aim to preserve the author's voice while making suggestions to reduce wordiness, to improve the story's pace, and so forth.

An author--especially a self-published one--has the final word on the story.  Only accept or make changes that improve or advance the writing/story.
Thanks, Julie! I will check it out.
Yes createspace is very good. Good support too. While ebooks will likely make up the greater portion of your sales, some people do prefer paperback and they handle that well.
