People know, at some level, that "writers" are supposed to start with
blank sheets of paper, filling them up with words of their own composition.
They tend to harbor vague suspicions that "writers" who deal in the
words of others are plagiarists, or maybe well-meaning phonies.

If you don't typically write your books from scratch (referring to
original sources but not incorporating them), you should call yourselves
"technical editors." They'll think of Lou Grant running the city
desk at a major newspaper. People know, vaguely, that editors are
people who decide what gets written, when it's needed, and how it's
