I recently learned that an editor I've been working with is moving to another publishing house. We've been working together on ZOOM, a pop-up book, for well over a year.
On the bright side, J told me that she'll look forward to working with me again at her new house. But I'm feeling a sense of sadness, wondering if my book may be losing one of it's biggest advocates before it even hits store shelves? I'm sure this happens all the time with editors moving from house to house, so maybe there's nothing to worry about. I do look forward to meeting and working with the new editor and I wish I'd gotten to know the art department folks a bit better.
On another note: Yes I did delete my post about the King awards. According to Sitemeter, apparently, there was more interest in this post than what I cared to draw to myself. Though I didn't say anything inappropriate, like in my early days of blogging, I was less than jovial when I wrote it and, therefore, probably should have kept my thoughts to myself. Especially since I can't even discuss the topic without my heart beating real fast and my head getting hot.
Every now and then, I need to remind myself not to make statements that might alienate myself from others in the community. This blog is about giving readers a glimpse into what's going on in my professional — and sometimes not-so-professional life, and not about making controversial statements. Ok, well, occasionally. Or blogging wouldn't be any fun.
