Copy Editing and Style Guides

There's a good article by a copy editor on an author's blog:
Inside the Twisted Mind of a Copy Editor

Sounds like she mainly copy edits periodicals, so her perspective is slightly different that the copy editor for novels. But most of what she has to say is applicable and interesting. Good stuff for authors to be aware of.

Thanks for mentioning my blog! I edit it all--periodicals and romance manuscripts, so bring it on if you need an editor!
