I’ve been flicking through the glossy guide over pots of tea and countless Twirls. In places, my editor has replaced my enthusiastic rants with more sedate phrases and a few of my recommended places have fallen by the wayside. This is the way of publishing. There is a limit as to how many words you can fit in a book and that’s what editors are for. Left to the writer, a book of 340 pages would be 670 pages. This is a fact.
