1. Send a thank-you note immediately after receiving an assignment or contraEditor's choice number one award badge on whitect. It doesn’t have to be elaborate — just a quick handwritten note.

2. Find out the editor’s birthday and send a card. An e-card is fine.

3. Inquire about their hobbies and occasionally ask about them.

4. Exchange a family photo or two. It sometimes helps my focus to look at my editor’s picture while working on a project.

5. Visit the editor if possible. The time I spent recently with the people who publish my books energized our relationship. I also visit my magazine editor once a year when I’m in the area on vacation.

You don’t have to do all five.  it makes in your dealings with your editor.
