    makes sense for someone querying or sending material who's never worked with an agent or editor before. But once someone is with an agent or editor on a project, this becomes another workplace relationship, and those often do turn ugly for one reason or another.

    In the case of one of the editors, I was at fault. She put a lot of effort into line editing the first two chapters and giving me guidelines for the revision she wanted, and rather than communicating with her, telling her I'd run into difficulties making her revision work, I simply vanished.
