If you write to your editor, do you cc your agent, too?

Not usually, no. I keep my agent in the loop but if everything is going fine I wouldn't cc her on everything editorial.

Yes I do

All business stuff goes through my agents and anything tricky. But day to day Q&As about editing etc, then no.

That's what I thought should happen, GetAHaircut.

Not unless there's a problem or I think there might be in the future. I send the manuscript straight to the editor too - I'd drop my agent an email to let them know it's gone in on time, but wouldn't send it to him unless he asked.

Mine seems to want to be copied into everything.

There's no harm in copying them in, I guess - easy to do and means there can be no confusion over dates/changes etc. I think I only worry if someone starts copying others in when they didn't in the past!

I do if it's something my agent could benefit from knowing, I generally cc her in the first email in a thread and then when it's just the tail end of pleasantries, I take her off the thread as I'm conscious of just how many emails she must get.
