They're supposed to be a drag, I gather, the pre-publication edits. I kind of enjoy them -- it's interesting to see what someone else thinks would make your story better. And sure, sometimes I do what every writer does and I get touchy about something or other. Generally, it's a characterization thing. "No, no, no, he wouldn't say it that way!" But it's unclear the way it was said, and it's time to find a third way, and that's a fun little puzzle, so off I go on a rewrite.
At any rate, it also means the book is out soon, and that's a good feeling.
