Client Experiences


I used Linda to edit my first manuscript. As a new author, I couldn’t help but feel vulnerable turning my work over to someone with the experience Linda has. After all, commas and semi-colons in my college English courses scared me. Yet, Linda’s professionalism quickly put me at ease and the returned product assured me that I had selected the most efficient editor for my project. I look forward to working with Linda again in the future.
