comment What are effective ways of working with a nonfiction editor?
@John - Good question! It's important to to me to try to get consensus first. After @Neil disagreed about it being a dupe, I left it open. And when you note that both my answer and my comment about the dupe got zero upvotes, and that his disagreement got one and his answer got four + acceptance, it was clear to me I was in the minority.

comment What are effective ways of working with a nonfiction editor?
@Neil - True, the question title sounds that way, but the question itself is by an author asking about over-zealous editing of non-fiction. Sounded kinda familiar to me…

@Standback - actually, it is on the market: pay $99 for a developer membership (available to anyone—you don't have to actually be a developer) and you get access to the public beta of Lion.
