Charlaine Harris

Friend lent me her Sookie Stackhouse series (True Blood) and I gave it a try. I thought the books were a bit juvenile. Too simple. Too predictable. I think I might have enjoyed them more when I was in Jr. High.

that's possibly why they made a smooth transition to TV...?

Cough, cough ...

Ginjer is a great editor, but she doesn't edit so much, these days. She's in charge of a line that publishes something like 180 books a year -- she doesn't have time to edit!

(So my books that she publishes are mostly edited by my agent, who used to be an editor at Avon-EOS a decade ago -- except when they're edited by my editors at Orbit or Golden Gryphon.)

I get the impression there are a number of book editors who are rather more like producers, at least with some of their authors. They enable the books and make them happen, but don't necessarily do much artistic direction.

Maybe we need a different term for that. To distinguish them from the editors who, like, actively edit. I think it varies a little on a per-project basis, though.
