Fresh as a Daisy Editing pays homage to my mom. She loved daisies and was always supportive of my writing endeavors—of all my endeavors, really. She was there for all the big steps in my life, and I like to think she's there as I move forward with this one too.
Also, the daisy symbolizes new beginnings and became a slang word for something of excellent quality ("That's a daisy" became "That's a doozy"). Fresh as a Daisy is, of course, an expression too. To me, it means one is vulnerable but strong, ready to face the world. A new manuscript should be too.
