A Postscript to My Editor’s Note from the February Issue of Book Business

A postscript to my editor’s note from the February issue of Book Business       

As you’ll see here, this month I wrote about a theoretical editorial emergency service that raced about town in a white contractor’s panel van, heading to the scene of publishing problems. The van I imagined read EDITORIAL in large red block letters, and was inspired by a real-life van I caught a glimpse of through the bus windows one morning on my way to work. The van I saw also had big red letters, but I was too far away to read what it said.

Today I had another sighting of that van, and this time I could clearly see what was written on the side: JANITORIAL. It made me laugh, and I quickly texted my colleague Brian Howard, Book Business’s Editor-in-Chief, to tell him what I had seen. His quick reply: “Well, sometimes we do that kind of work, too.” How true it is!
