“Linda has been a crucial part of my self-publishing journey for the last five years. She has worked with me on every one of my more than twenty original self-published titles, and her contributions are essential to ensuring my books are ready to go on sale. She’s the best!”
—Marie Force, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

 

“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.”
—Joan Swan/Skye Jordan, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

 

“Linda’s edits are always constructive and help me improve the weak spots in a story. When I’ve reached a point where I can’t see the forest for the trees from being too close to the writing, she points out what needs to be added to improve a plot point or a lapse in character development.”
—Bonnie Dee, USA Today Bestselling Author

 

“Professional, dependable, and meticulous, Linda Ingmanson is everything an copy editor should be and more. When needed, her feedback goes beyond copy edits, noting issues my critique partners and I have missed. Linda and Toni are always a pleasure to work with and essential to my publishing process. I highly recommend them both!”
—Rachel Grant, author of the Evidence series

“I’ve worked with a number of editors, and Linda is the best. She’s a rare beast: a copy editor who can proof. She spots problems from large plot issues to a missing comma. And her price includes yet another set of eyes, so you get two excellent editors and proofreaders for the price of one.”
—Summer Devon, award-winning author

 

“Linda has been my editor since 2012, and I wouldn’t think of using anyone else. She’s very thorough, delivers on time, and is wonderful to work with. I highly recommend her.”
—Raine English, USA Today Bestselling Author

 

“I first met Linda when I was a marketing manager for Samhain Publishing, as she edits several of their authors’ works. I’ve been traditionally published by Random House and Simon & Schuster, and chose to work with Linda when I decided to try indie publishing. I’m so glad I did! She is timely, professional, and positive—and her editorial insights have been on-target every time. She’s a tremendously valuable part of my publishing team!”
—Jenn Stark/Jennifer Chance

 

“Linda has been my editor for several years and I trust her implicitly, both for her fantastic grasp of grammar and punctuation, and her understanding of my style and intentions. Her suggestions are always constructive and strengthening. I find her invaluable!”
—Marie Treanor, author of the Blood Hunter series

 

“Linda Ingmanson is the best freelance editor I’ve ever worked with. She’s meticulous with detail. She will remember details about my book, and previous books in the series, even if I forget. She is extremely punctual. I never have to put padding into my schedule for her. If she says an edit will be ready in X days, it will be in my inbox. She is incredibly talented and professional. And beyond that, she brings so much positive energy to a project. This is almost as important as the editing. She’s made every single one of my indie books better. In fact, when she asked if I’d write a short testimonial, my first reaction was panic. What if she advertises and gets so popular that she can’t fit me into her schedule? Seriously, I would not want to write a book without Linda. I wish I could take her with me to my traditionally published projects.”
—Dana Marton, New York Times Bestselling Author

 

“Working with Linda Ingmanson, copy editor extraordinaire, and proofreader Toni Lee has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my writing career. Linda’s sense of humor is a delight. She is thorough, insightful, and sharp. My writing has improved tenfold thanks to her advice.”
—Victoria Saccenti, author of Destiny’s Plan

 

“I feel very fortunate to have found Linda. She’s a wonderfully sharp-eyed copyeditor, correcting my many misplaced commas and flagging overused words, but also pointing out factual mistakes and anatomical impossibilities. And you get three reads for the price of one, since she reads your revision pass and then works closely with a proofreader. Beyond that, though, I trust her to point out when I’ve strayed from the emotional truth of the story and characters, or skimmed over important beats. I trust her judgment, and that’s the highest compliment I can give anyone.”
—Talia Surova, 2015 RITA Nominee

 

And praise for Toni Lee, our premier proofreader!
“I used to think I was a picky reader (there are some big-name thriller and romantic suspense authors I can’t read anymore, and I don’t understand how readers don’t see the gaping plot holes) but I think Toni has me beat by a mile—which is good.”
—Rachel Grant, author of the Evidence series

 

“Toni caught mistakes in a book that had been worked on by no fewer than four New York editors and proofreaders. She’s the most amazing and thorough proofreader I’ve ever encountered.”
—Kate Rothwell, award-winning author

 

“I couldn’t possibly say enough good things about working with Linda Ingmanson. Writing is hard enough, but editing? Yikes. However, Linda made the process infinitely easier with her positive attitude and keen eye toward clear communication. Having a trustworthy editor is vital for a writer since writing is such a singular activity. I think Linda is a rare find. She is dedicated, hard-working, and honestly loves what she does. I truly appreciate working with her.”–Nix Knox, author of The Mormon and the Dom

 

“I’ve worked with Linda for 10 years, 7 books and 1 rejection, and have always considered it a true partnership & collaboration. She is that rare gem of detail-oriented but kind, and extremely respectful of an author’s voice. Even when we disagree on a point, it becomes an active dialogue of give-and-take, when we discuss our positions and why it would make the story/book stronger. She is a great communicator and very professional, able to see the bigger picture and helped me when I got trapped by minutia. Every one of my projects is better for her keen eye and input.”–Renee Wildes, Guardians of Light series
