Blech. That stinks! I've been really lucky that none of my editor-switches have resulted in major rewriting, but the latest one did result in a lot of broken promises about publicity, artwork, pub date, etc. It's amazing how often editors play musical chairs at magazines and book publishers-- particularly, I think, at larger publishers. Smaller companies seem to have more loyal staffs.

By the way, hi Lauri! Everyone, this is my favorite editor. :grin (She edited Make a Real Living as a Freelance Writer... no switcheroos!)
