Cambridge University Press published my book. The first draft served as my PhD dissertation, and then I revised it for a more general audience. I worked closely with a Cambridge-selected copyeditor to perfect the final draft, and I created the book’s index. I understand the book process from start to finish, and I know how valuable a good copyeditor is.
As author of articles in journals, magazines, and newspapers, I’ve been on both sides of the editorial equation. I know what callous criticism feels like, and I’ve experienced the transformative effect of incisive critique, gently delivered.
