Editor Appreciation Day! (Not Contest Results, Yet...)

Today is a really big day on the YA Highway, and so I'll only take up a bit of your time while the votes are being tallied. Remember Agent Appreciation Day? Well, today is...
Editor Appreciation Day!
Before I signed with my agent, I didn't think too much about editors. Agents crowded my dreams. I don't know if I could have named more that two or three editors -- thinking about them seemed too far away, cart before the horse, etc. (Not to call you a horse, Michelle!)

But once you land that book deal, your editor steps into the spotlight with hammer and chisel. Though the work is hard, you always remember that he/she fought for your book, just like your agent. You have not one advocate, but two.

Anyway, editors totally deserve appreciation as much as agents. Gretchen McNeil is gathering the links this time, so keep an eye out for more and more editor love manifestos as the day rolls on. And of course, keep an eye out for the results of our Holiday Giveaway!!
