Introduction
Not all editors are the same. What makes a great editor is someone who listens carefully to what you need. Listening skills combined with expertise in editing is a winning combination. I am that editor: I listen and deliver. 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. However, I am not qualified to edit poetry, which requires a different skill set. I know my limitations and I will be upfront should you ask for something that I am unable to do. I use Word and Google Docs for straightforward editing and I use Final Draft for screenplays. I do not do formatting as that requires a different skill set. 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. I'll make suggestions that you can accept or reject. You have the final say. 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 your document 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. I am located on the West Coast and will respond to all communication in a timely manner. I start at 8 am Pacific Coast time. I enjoy my work and always look forward to taking on new projects.

It was great to have Lynne’s help. She understood the idea of my writing and with her professionalism, she helped me to make clear my ideas. She was very punctual and communicated all time with me to let me know how she was working on my paper and which changes were suitable for a better writing. I will work with her again in a future writing project.

As a novice writer in search of an editor, I interviewed several persons. Luckily, I found Lynne, a woman with excellent editing and writing skills and infinite patience. She was highly professional and very insightful as she offered suggestions to improve my work. She worked quickly and kept me informed and involved throughout the process. This was a great experience! Jean P

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 more than 30 years. My fees are competitive. Since Thumbtack uses a broad range of words for you to choose, 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. I also like the client to tell me about themselves and their goals. 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.
