From Gabby

I am furious that a supposed professional would speak to an author in such a degrading way...to cover herself, of course, she knows she's in the wrong and she's obviously trying to bully you. I wonder how many times she's done this before? And to tell you you should be grateful?

And yep, students do get tossed out...because plagiarism is considered to lack integrity.

May I send a link to the author's groups for my two publishers? Nick's? I'd rather like to spread the word and make her a bit uncomfortable...and if I post the link to, say, the professional organizations that I belong to, as well...a lot of very displeased authors will know about this.

Also, I just read the article. I used to make my living editing? And I wouldn't have changed anything.

Sorry, I just *HAD* to do this. I assume from your comment that you no longer make a living editing? I have a good guess as to why?

There is a reason why an author never edits her own work. ;) Or that a secretary should never sneak post during work.

And no, the reason why I quit was not because I was a poor editor, but because freelance editing does not pay the bills, so I have to hope that there are other ways of becoming an independently wealthy hermit.
