Interesting...  I am working on a book right now for Cool Springs  
Press and we have a hort editor and a copy editor both....

I knew that Timber expected authors to provide all their own photos  
but if they don't also run their pubs by a hort editor, all I can say  
is that I am even more impressed by the quality of Timber authors!
