author of August Fog trilogy
"Writing is such a solitary venture but good editing should feel collaborative. I've worked with well-known, high-profile editors from big-five publishing houses who simply mark up my manuscript, send a short uplifting editorial letter, and accept their payment with little if any follow up. When Lynne wanted to get my changes back to review it a final time I was floored. This is the way the editing process should feel with supportive guidance focused on the content. Lynne was by far the most thorough line editor I've worked with, too. She not only caught mistakes that I and another editor missed, but she also pointed to some content that came off confusing and worked with me to suggest fixes. Hands down, your experience with her will be the best investment you can make for your book."
author of One Wild Ride, The Eccentric Earl, The Impulsive Lord Parker 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 and the Puckerbrush series
Lynne and I have worked together on six 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.
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 series
"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.
We have just finished working on my second project and it will not be our last. 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."
