Introduction: Who better to edit your manuscript than a very experienced editor? I have been working as an editor for more than 30 years. My skills are unmatched given the broad range of areas I work in, from screenplays to dissertations, from memoirs to self-help books, from nonfiction to fiction. Each genre requires a different skill set and I have developed these skills over my very successful career. I use Word and Google Docs for straightforward editing and I use Final Draft for screenplays. I received professional training when I started my career in copy editing 30 years ago. I have continued to work as a copy editor and proofreader, and writer when the documents needs some refinement. If there is a better way to say something, I will say it. If the organization of the document needs some help, I will tweak it. If the formatting needs to follow APA or MLA or Turabian, I will follow the guidelines. Leave it to me! Please read my reviews. My clients can vouch for my professionalism and timeliness. If you'd like to chat with any of them, I can put you in touch. My fees are fair and I will work within your budget. I am open to negotiate the fee depending on the size of the project, how complicated the project is and your turnaround time. I am ready to move forward. I have never missed a deadline and will keep you informed of my progress.

Lynne did an excellent job on my manuscript and was very easy to work with you. She has a sharp eye for detail and was very thorough with her editing and analysis of my overall story. She was very adept at identifying anything that took the reader out of the story. Extremely helpful and professional!
Lynne Feldman's reply
Thank you Brian. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you. You took the necessary steps to ensure that the story kept the reader engaged and were willing to consider alternatives along the way. I look forward to working with you in the future.

Lynne edited a 40,000 word book I wrote. She set expectations up front, outlined a timeline and executed her work more quickly than I was expecting and within the expectations we set. She was very prompt in responding to questions and was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

Working with Lynne on a highly emotional writing project was a pleasure and a blessing. Her professionalism is top quality. She is very thorough in her work, and the quality of the end project was above and beyond my expectations. What I appreciated so much about Lynne was that she took a personal interest in me and the project so the voice and tone remained true to the content. I truly appreciated her texting and personally calling me to gain insight, so as not to correct something that held a special value to the document. The turnaround time from the beginning to the conclusion of the project was exceptional. I believe Lynne to be a maximum-effort person, never satisfied with the mediocre. She is diligent and takes pride in a job well done. I enthusiastically give my endorsement of Lynne Feldman's skills and professionalism without qualification and with the highest praise!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My fees reflect my years of experience. As an editor, copy editor and proofreader, I am professionally trained and have worked in the field for 25 years. My fees are competitive. Since the range of words is broad (for example, 3000 to 5000) I generally like to receive a sample of a client's writing to be able to assess the number of hours it will take to complete the project.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I build trust with my clients by telling them about myself and my success in helping clients to reach their goals. Building a trusting relationship is key. Usually I offer to do a sample edit so the client can evaluate my editing skills and make an informed decision.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    As a copy editor and proofreader, I acquired my skills while working for an academic publisher. My skills were honed at Gage Publishing in Canada. I worked in concert with US publishers in Texas as the US edition of each book was adapted to the Canadian market. I also prepared academic manuscripts for publication and copy edited dissertations before the client defended their research. As an ESL instructor, I earned my certificate to teach ESL from Cambridge online. I have many years of classroom experience and now I work one on one.
