I just got a phone call from an author whose books I normally copyedit but whose latest novel I had to turn down. He said that he’s going to request in his contract for all future books that I be hired if I’m available.
I don’t know what emotion to write about that. Proud? Touched? Happy? All those, really. I’ve never heard of that happening before.

That’s really cool. I think a bit of each of those would be appropriate.
That is quite a compliment- congratulations!!
Sorry, that last one was me–didn’t realize I wasn’t logged in.
That’s fantastic! He obviously knows quality!!
I think that’s called “credit where credit is due.”
Deanna–That’s fantastic! What a lovely, truly sincere, compliment! :D
Def. all of the above. :D
Happily touched with pride? ;)
If I were you, I’d start feeling expensive. *g*
Shoot, girl, I intend to make the same request someday. :-)
The real question is, is it an author whose book you would like to work on?
That’s a new one on me. I’ve certainly had authors request me, but…
Anyway, I think it’s great.
