"Lynne is my go-to for all things editing.
I love her ability to adapt to my personal style.
She gently provides me with constructive feedback that improves the quality of my work.
Lynne does a great job communicating expectations, keeping to her promised timeline, and most important I trust the integrity of her work.
As far as I’m concerned, Lynne is the best kept secret in writing. Please don’t tell everyone."
author of Ghost of a Chance, Just Lucky, & Grace Under Pressure
"Knowledge, humor, and heart are important qualities when choosing an editor.
From my first conversation with Lynne Pearson, I knew I’d found the person I could entrust with my novels.
From constructive feedback for making my manuscripts the best they can be, to sharing writers’ resources, to being an all-around great human being, I’m thrilled to have Lynne as my editor."
author of the Werewolves of Ulterra series.
"I found Lynne on the Romance Writers of America website under recommended services, and she is worth her weight in gold! Not only did she edit my manuscript with the kind of detail I wanted and needed, but she also provided comprehensive reports to assist with my writing going forward, and met with me both pre and post project to discuss the overall work.
This level of attention to detail was exactly what I wanted. I was looking for a partner to help me on my publishing journey (as writers we know it takes an entire team to help us bring our book into the world) and she was exactly what I needed. Not only is my book richer as a result, but I also learned more about my craft so I can continue to advance my writing. I already have recommended Lynne to other writers in my author Facebook and critique groups, and I will continue to recommend Lynne to all authors looking for an editor and partner."
author of the Fulton River Falls, the Colby County series, and more.
"Years ago, I won a five page edit, sent my pages off, and cried when a plethora of derogatory comments came back with red ink peppered pages, marks I didn’t understand, and slashed out text. When I went searching for an editor last fall, I knew I didn’t want a repeat of that experience.
The first thing that brought me to Lynne was her training and experience. Then when I met her, her effervescent personality and friendliness made me feel comfortable placing my babies in her hands. I loved that her first question to me was “What is your goal?”
I love that she meets me face-to-face online to discuss the issues. Some of her recommendations on my first project blew me away. The way they enhanced the story was phenomenal.
Her attention to detail, her quick turn-around, and her support for my writing and my success is exactly what I was looking for in an editor.
Selecting Lynne was the very best thing I did for my writing."
author of The Spotted Dog series.
"I was extremely nervous to work with Lynne. Prior to her, I had a less-than-positive experience with a different editor. However, five minutes into our initial face-to-face Zoom meeting, Lynne soothed my frayed nerves with her professionalism and warmth ... a combination that I've found you don't always get.
Once we started working together, Lynne blew me away with her knowledge and articulation; she was the consummate professional. Her critiques are given with respect, and she offers multiple suggestions to fix an issue. She has a way of making you look at particular scenes in a different manner and pushes you to go deeper. And she has the patience of a saint.
I am 1000% looking forward to working with Lynne again."
author of The Artful Bargain.
“Lynne Pearson’s editing expertise transformed my story from good to great. At our first meeting, I knew I was in capable hands. She’s professional, kind, and eloquent.
Like many writers, I can be overprotective of my words, but I could see the big picture with Lynne's guidance. With her gentle persuasion, I could understand the words through a reader's eyes. Which is so important to me. Readers are the life force for any writer. My job as a writer is entertaining readers and making them turn the pages.
But most importantly, I want to respect their time and let them know how much I appreciate that they’ve given up such a valuable commodity for me and my story. By working with Lynne, I achieved this goal. Every page in every chapter sings beautifully in The Artful Bargain.
All her editorial recommendations rang true to me. Her most brilliant idea was changing the names of my furry characters. Initially, my two mini dachshunds were called Fred and Ethel, but as they are small dogs that like to dance around everybody’s feet, Lynne suggested Fred and Ginger. How perfect! Already pivotal in the story, Fred and Ginger became the stars in several scenes in the book.
As I am fond of pop culture, Lynne helped me seamlessly tie in my love of classic movies and TV shows into The Artful Bargain.
I highly recommend working with Lynne Pearson. She’s a word-slinger extraordinaire.”
author of the Perry Harbor Series.
"I am so grateful to Lynne for her masterful edits, advice, and mentoring in this writer life. As I begin my self-publishing career, she has been and is, a valued partner.
My reviews consistently indicate “beautiful” writing and quality work. This would not be possible without Lynne’s help and input. She is on-time with expected turnarounds, even going above and beyond once because I failed to plan my deadlines correctly. Thanks again, Lynne! She is knowledgeable and professional, but also fun and easy to talk with, even when delivering less than glowing feedback. She doesn’t pull punches, but her approach is soft.
With each book she has edited, I have become a better writer, learning from her, and growing my technical skills.
I highly recommend Lynne Pearson and All That Editing the next time you need an editor. Oh, but don’t take my next book’s slot on her schedule. I need her!"
author of One Wild Ride, The Eccentric Earl, The Impulsive Lord Parker, The Mischievous Marquess, My Rakish Lord, The Provocative Prince, The Scottish Lord, Charmed by a Duke, and more.
"I was referred to Lynne by an editor friend of mine who had heard good things about her. My friend was right. I've worked with Lynne on multiple books: historical novellas, sports romances, and contemporary romances. She has a great eye for detail. I'd recommend Lynne to anyone who is looking for a talented editor."
C. Deanne Rowe,
author of the Cowboy Temptation series, the Puckerbrush series, and the Miller Canyon Ranch series.
"Lynne and I have worked together on many of my books. I found her at a time when I needed professional editing. I'm so happy I did.
Not only does she edit my stories, but she also pushes me to do better. I love that she assigns me 'homework' after each session; directing me to learn what I need to take my writing to the next level. She brings to my attention possibilities I can use in my current book as well as future stories.
I have learned so much about writing since I started working with Lynne.
You won't find another editor who is more willing to show you what you need to know. She has the calm and patience of a professional but still leaves you feeling like you just chatted with a friend."
