your words—professionally polished and ready for print

Many people do their job well, but finding a person who is truly exceptional at their profession is, in my opinion, rare. Lindsey is unquestionably in the latter category. She did a masterful job editing my manuscript. From comma splices and dangling participles to verb tense, punctuation, and spelling, she didn’t miss a thing. Moreover, she fact-checked, recognized and corrected awkward phrases, and formatted the entire manuscript, explaining each and every change along the way.
