Editing is an invisible art where the very best work goes undetected. Editors strive to create books that are enlightening, seamless, and pleasurable to read, all while giving credit to the author. This makes it all the more difficult to truly understand the range of roles they inhabit while shepherding a project from concept to publication. In What Editors Do, Peter Ginna gathers essays from twenty-seven leading figures in book publishing about their work. Representing both large houses and small, and encompassing trade, textbook, academic, and children’s publishing, the contributors make the case for why editing remains a vital function to writers—and readers—everywhere. Ironically for an industry built on words, there has been a scarcity of written guidance on how to actually approach the work of editing. This book will serve as a compendium of professional advice and will be a resource both for those entering the profession (or already in it) and for those outside publishing who seek an understanding of it. It sheds light on how editors acquire books, what constitutes a strong author-editor relationship, and the editor’s vital role at each stage of the publishing process—a role that extends far beyond marking up the author’s text. This collection treats editing as both art and craft, and also as a career. It explores how editors balance passion against the economic realities of publishing. What Editors Do shows why, in the face of a rapidly changing publishing landscape, editors are more important than ever.

Editing Fact and Fiction is a concise, practical guide for people interested in book publishing or already working as editors who want to learn more about the opportunities in various kinds of book editing. Writing in a lively, informal style, two editors with extensive experience in a wide variety of fields--fiction and nonfiction, trade and reference, academic and commercial publishing--explain what editors in different jobs really do. The authors take the reader step by step through the editing process, from manuscript to bound book. They discuss the principles of sound editing and provide many specific examples of how to--and how not to--edit copy. They also give examples of how to deal tactfully with authors and show when editorial restraint is the best intervention. Editing Fact and Fiction is a book to be read, not just referred to. It will be an indispensable guide for anyone thinking about a career in book publishing, a valuable resource for working editors who want to enlarge their knowledge, and a useful tool for senior editors training staff. Leslie T. Sharpe and Irene Gunther are both editors and writers. An experienced trade book editor, Leslie T. Sharpe teaches editing and writing at New York University and Columbia University. She is also a regular contributor to New York Newsday. Irene Gunther was a senior editor at Macmillan Publishing and has extensive experience in reference and college book editing. She is the author of a teenage biography and a contributor to various publications.

„Was liest du gerade?“ So beginnt das Gespräch zwischen Will Schwalbe und seiner Mutter Mary Anne. Sie ist todkrank, doch anstatt zu verzweifeln, widmet sie sich ihrer großen Leidenschaft, dem Lesen. Über ein Jahr begleitet Will seine Mutter bis zum Ende ihres Lebens – und durch eine Welt von Büchern, die sie gemeinsam erkunden: Joseph und seine Brüder, Die Eleganz des Igels, Der Vorleser ... Am Ende erkennt Will: Lesen ist nicht das Gegenteil von handeln – es ist das Gegenteil von sterben. Will Schwalbe erzählt die Geschichte jenes Jahres. Er erzählt von den Büchern, die ihrer beider Leben geprägt haben. Und er erzählt von Trauer, Angst und der Erkenntnis, dass das Glück ganz unerwartet aus dem Moment heraus entsteht.

»Die Brautprinzessin« ist ein raffiniertes Abenteuer und eine atemlose, clevere Romanze. Traurig und hinterlistig, verspielt, blutig und zeitlos. Wahnsinnig. Und wunderschön. »Ich bin dein Prinz und du musst mich heiraten«, sagte Humperdinck. »Ich bin Eure Dienerin und lehne ab«, flüsterte Butterblume. »Ich bin der Prinz, und du kannst nicht ablehnen.« »Ich bin Eure sehr ergebene Dienerin, und ich habe eben abgelehnt.« »Weigerung bedeutet Tod.« »Dann tötet mich.« Bis Herbst 2008 wurde das Buch seit dem ersten Erscheinen bereits 100.000 mal verkauft.
