Calling All Editors and Agents

A couple of days ago, I posted "Six Things Authors Wish Every Editor Knew," and an astute reader noted that editors (and I presume agents) have their own lists for authors. So I'm issuing an invitation. If you're a book editor or literary agent, e-mail us your own "Six Things" list directed toward authors. Let's keep the lists positive: what authors can do to help ensure a positive working relationship rather than a litany of gripes, please, and we'll help broaden the discussion.

Any takers?

Consider the gauntlet (ever so politely) thrown. :)

We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.

Peace, love, and statutory compliance ~
