Whether you’re indie publishing or in pursuit of a traditional contract, excellent edits are essential. With over ten years of experience, a BA in English, and a collaborative approach to editing, I, along with my team, will help polish your book to perfection.
I have worked for major digital publishers as well as with indie authors and have edited all kinds of romance, from sweet to red-hot, including contemporary, GLBT, paranormal, historical, multi-partner BDSM, and everything in between. I’ve also edited fantasy, historical, and suspense novels. If it’s got words, I can work with it!
Our current clients include New York Times and USA Today bestsellers, as well as authors just starting out with their first foray into indie publishing.
The process includes a full round of edits, which covers content as well as line edits, and then a second round where I review revisions. During content edits, we’ll look at plot, characterization, point of view, continuity, dialogue, etc. I’ll also clean up grammar and punctuation, and even brainstorm with you if you need it.
The final round is a polish from one of my excellent proofreaders, so you’ll have the security of two sets of eyes on your book.
Stuck on your back cover copy? I can work on a blurb with you too, either after edits or from your detailed synopsis.
Although I edit mostly romance, I’m happy to work on any genre of fiction and with all levels of writing.
Current rates range from $.015-.03/word, based on a 1,000-word writing sample (approx. four pages). Please contact for information on rates and scheduling.

“As an editor, Linda is both timely and detailed with the ability to return work in a reasonable amount of time while maintaining the highest quality editing.
I love the breadth of Linda’s editing services and often ask her to keep her eyes open for both big picture issues as well as the attention to detail she gives every project.
Linda’s flexibility, friendliness and competitive pricing are just added bonuses to her quality, timely editing services that keep me coming back, book after book.”
