"Lynne, thank you for your  advice and  expertise while editing my short stories! Without a doubt, I am moving  in the right direction! I look forward to working with you again in the  very near future!"

"Lynne  was indispensable in helping me move forward with my first manuscript. I  contacted Lynne when I found myself going in circles, unable to create  new scenes or expand on my characters. I knew my characters needed  rounding out and that my external conflicts were weak. Lynne made  constructive suggestions and gave me "what if" scenarios to boost my  imagination. She saw the possibilities of where my story could go, and  focused on how to improve it to a publishable level. She not only wrote  four pages of critiques and ideas, but sat down with me for an hour and  discussed them in detail. I came away with the motivation to dive into  the revision process with fresh ideas and a renewed confidence."

"Lynne was my editor, and I loved saying that, for my first nonfiction book Three.  I appreciated her thorough process from the very beginning. She was  quick to respond, accurate, and made wonderful suggestions. I could  contact Lynne about anything and she would review everything I sent her  way. Because of her process, I was able to locate problems with names  and people in Three that needed a change. This is not a small  task with a 346 page novel. Lynne made everything easy for me and even  handled formatting issues with my designer Mike Inks. The entire editing  process was perfect and Lynne was terrific. Thank you Lynne!

"I  needed someone to edit my manuscript on two levels: for  plot/character/pacing and also for grammar, punctuation, and spelling.  Lynne took the time to go through my book, flag the “speed bumps” that  would pull a reader out of the narrative and suggest possible  alternatives, as well as note errors in mechanics. She was easy to work  with and my novel is stronger for her expertise. Thanks, Lynne!”

 "Lynne  not only has solid credentials, she brings her expertise as a voracious  reader of young adult literature. She provides detailed line edits and  gives expert support in identifying the positive aspects of the draft  and what needs more attention. She is not looking for where the commas  go, she is more interested in what a comma says."

"The  path to many a fine novel inevitably runs through an editor. Lynne's  note to detail on my first effort provided valuable insight/suggestions  as well as properly cleaning up all those little things I had  unwittingly overlooked. Her effort contributed greatly in making my work  publishable. I look forward to working with her again in the future."

"Lynne did an excellent job editing my YA novel, Chasing Nirvana.  Not only did Lynne comb through the manuscript for period details,  geography, timeline, and vernacular continuity, as well as the usual  grammar and typos, she suggested reordering scenes and honing dialogue.  It made all the difference. I'm already talking to Lynne about my next  manuscript."

"Lynne's  professionalism and valid suggestions made me stand back from my  manuscript with an objective eye and make it better. Offering subtle  changes and finding obvious flaws, she has coaxed the best from me. I  appreciated her care and understanding of my characters. I will  definitely use her service again and wholeheartedly recommend her!"
