It was a beautiful drive, complete with snow capped mountains on one side and the Adriatic on the other. A hundred or so kiometres later, we were in Pescara; home of Evangelista Media-formerly Destiny Image Europe. Don Nori started the Destiny Image USA (as I understand it), and Pietro Evangelista is "papa" to the exellent publishing team for Europe.
We had a great day discussing my up coming Book Number 3, planning some changes and discussing distribution issues before heading out to lunch where we continued our discussions- chapter headings, new title.
Then Pietro gave me the good news: I was to have the same editor as I have had for the past two books. Hooray for Editor Angela! I love this editor, though we have never personally met. I send her - OK the publishing team sends her the manuscript when it is ready for this stage. She has a gift for encouragement; a word or two of how she enjoyed the book, and then down to work!
She seems to know she only needs to half way correct something I've written and I'm there! I was never one for responding well to the heavy handed approach. She has the creative, encouraging touch that is also thorough and into details I might/do miss. What a blessing to work with the Evangelista Media Team.
Have you ever worked with an editor who has the gift of "getting" you?
