I'm asking for a mate - she wants to work in publishing, reading the manuscripts that are sent in from new writers wanting to be published. What's the job title of the person who does this and decides whether the company should publish the book? Is it the editor?

It's the commissioning editor. Once the commissioning editor has decided to take on the work, the copy editor prepares the final written version of the text and takes out mistakes.

If your friend wants to be a commissioning editor, he or she will not be doing much creative work (writing and editing), but will be making deals with authors and other companies.

Cheers, Troos. That's sorted it - she says thanks.

How's your website coming along? Dying to see it!

It's going really well thanks; it should be up and running by the weekend. The homepage is already online on a hidden page. I'll pm you the address and you can take a look if you want - need your opinion on the colour scheme (think it's a bit dark).
