But there's no time to edit!
An Arizona novelist's books are so in demand that the publishers are skipping the editing process.
From a story in the Arizona Republic on Diana Gabaldon:
Her publisher is so eager to get them into print that the whole editing process has been done away with for Gabaldon.And while I'm pulling that section, let me tell you how irksome I find that the writer introduced a partial quote and fused it onto the longer quote. (What's a more elegant way to say that? Bill?)
She said her last book, The Fiery Cross, "went right off the disk I sent them and straight to the typesetter; there wasn't a copy editor. They sent me the galleys on a Tuesday, and I figured I'd spend about a month copy-reading them, but they said, 'We want them back Friday.' I spent four days with no sleep going over about 500,000 words."
