Choosing Lauren as my editor is THE BEST thing I have ever done for my book. She is sweet, professional, and responsive. Lauren is very well connected with graphic designers, other editors, and generally very familiar with the industry. She knows her stuff! 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Judy is an outstanding editor. In my first foray into book writing, I needed someone who could not only carefully proof and correct my writing, but also advise me on dealing with my publisher, show me how to improve my writing, and be thoroughly familiar with norms and standards for both the proposal and final manuscript.

      I've had extensive experience working with LaVonne, both in a conventional journalistic setting (she was the manager of a newspaper I was editor of) and in a freelance capacity. I have absolutely no qualms referring my clients to LaVonne when I'm unable to take on a job. Not only are her proofreading, copy-editing and copy-writing skills topnotch, but her client rapport is also excellent; she has a knack for determining just what it is a client needs -- from quick-and-dirty proofing to in-depth content revision -- and delivering the agreed-upon service in spades. If you require direction in this way, she will definitely help you get your ideas across more effectively. Plus she's a delight.
