Your support of my work and valuable contribution to Crying Girl means the world to me in so many ways. You have not taken the task lightly of handling my “baby” a.k.a manuscript and have worked diligently to identify trouble in efforts to bring to surface all the rough spots to be smoothed out so that the work can truly shine. As a prudent copyeditor, you have made me feel challenged, enthusiastic and valuable. You are also generous with acknowledging when I’ve done a good job or when my author ego needs a little stroke of encouragement. You have always followed through with all edits and deadlines and have always remained flexible. While you are detail-oriented, consistent, and thorough, your ability to enjoy the process (the plodding, unglamorous nature of the work itself) means so much and for this you are LOVED SARAH ARBUTHNOT LENDT!
