Reviewers and Editors ...

Empathy goes a long way.  You wouldn’t appreciate if someone very publicly defamed your children.  An author’s book IS one of their children.
TM: Can you describe your typical work week at Little, Brown? What exactly do editors do?
AS: Lots of reading! There are always tons of manuscripts and proposals on submission, and a huge part of the job is getting through the reading pile. It’s all worth it, though, to find the books you love and will get to publish on your list.
