We have worked with Lynne Melcombe on a number of projects, and each time she is the epitome of professionalism, both in her communication and her work. I recommend her highly. ~ Anne Key

With Lynne, the whole editing process was so rewarding that reworking the manuscript was a joyful experience. I will definitely recommend Lynne to any aspiring writer who is serious about taking their manuscript to the next level of excellence.

I was not only impressed with what Lynne did but the way she did it. . . . She was knowledgeable about editing and impeccable in rooting out areas where more research was needed . . . She never once assumed I would know how editing works but was patient and diplomatic in explaining the process to me as we went along. . . . With Lynne’s help, I not only produced a better book than I would have otherwise, but I also learned to be a stronger communicator myself. ~ Mary Wong

If you want someone to correct your grammar and punctuation, I’m sure Lynne can do that for you. But I recommend her because she does more than just tell me my writing is fine and my book is good to go. She helped me make my novel better, and she helped me learn to be a better writer. ~ Kathleen Wheeler

As new authors, we’d like to express our thanks to Lynne Melcombe for her work on our book, Sexy, Sassy and Strong. We didn’t know what to expect but she made us feel very much at ease. She put my words in an order that made me feel like my message was stronger, clearer, and easier to read, without losing our style or the flavour we wanted in the book. She was very professional and we are very grateful! ~ Alison Forezli and Gloria Mohninger

“[Lynne’s] comments were encouraging and suggestions right on the mark. While writing the second draft, I felt like she was right there with me guiding me along the way. She was sensitive to a difficult topic yet urged me to tell my story in a way that would better engage the reader. . . . I chose Lynne because her sample sounded like me . . . only better!” ~ Niki Krauss
