A war of words… Assistant editor Annie McGuire has just been given the assignment of a lifetime.
Her boss, the Senior Editor of fiction at McMahon Martin Publishing no , has chosen Annie to edit one-time, blockbuster author James Raymond’s new book. This is the chance Annie has been waiting for and she’s desperate to prove her worth as a serious editor. It’s time to make the leap to senior editor, after all if she doesn’t someone else surely will. With her qualifications and experience, nothing could go wrong… right? ...wrong! It turns out Annie is totally oblivious to the details and politics of how the motorbike riding, egomaniac author was enticed away from his old publisher. When two ambitious chief editors of opposing New York publishing houses go to war, there is bound to be collateral. But will Annie’s career take the full force of the damage? With rumours swirling that Raymond’s new manuscript is a flop and his own agent publically voicing his concern at every opportunity, does Annie have any hope of turning this around? Or is Annie’s own story destined to come to a tragic end…? Set in the cut throat world of publishing, Cutting Words is a heartfelt tale about never giving up on your dreams. P. A.
