The author has put so much hard work into the book. What is nice at this stage is (a) seeing that and (b) as a result almost feeling how much the book has been strengthened as a result.

This is probably my favourite part of the editing process. The book is so nearly there and that's a great feeling for author, publisher, and editor alike.

I'm also pleased to see the first book I edited is now out. I must admit, while I cannot be as pleased and thrilled with that as the author undoubtedly is, I do feel almost maternal, wanting the book to do well out there in the big, bad world!

Now I am looking forward to being on the other side of the fence again when I have my own Edit 2 back to work through in due course!
