“You hope your editor will seem as excited as you are about your work and will inspire you to make it better and then better again, but you also hope your editor will bring a combination of experience, knowledge, creativity, insight, kindness, encouragement, flexible thinking, rigour, professionalism, fun, and the ability to see issues and solutions on both the large and small scale. All those hopes were realized when Amanda Lewis worked with me on my novel, my twentieth published book. My novel and I couldn’t have had a better experience.”

― Gary Barwin, author of Yiddish for Pirates
