When I went looking for a new editor, Lynn was recommended to me by a good Facebook friend. So after checking out her work and getting a quote, I gave her the go ahead to work on my newest release Revenge. The third book in my Guardian series. Obviously I was happy with the price or I wouldn’t have given her the go ahead to begin with, but I was equally happy with the service.
Lynn was quick and efficient and brutally honest, and I did take on board a few of her comments and suggestions as well as grammar and spelling corrections. I love that, as an Australian she was happy to work with me to use English in my book as opposed to American English, and I was especially happy with the two final copies she sent back, one with the corrections marked up, and one clean ready to go copy so I could pick and choose any corrections that I may not want to make. At this stage, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lynn for any editing work you need done.

The Guardian Series:
It is difficult to know where to start when looking for an editor. I scoured through the websites of self-published authors for tips and came across Lynn’s name. I contacted her through her website and received a very nice reply answering my queries. Lynn has been fabulous! She not only puts up with my constant questions but she has done an amazing job with my manuscripts. It was important for me to be able to keep in contact throughout the editing process and Lynn kept me up to date every step of the way and was quick to reply to any further questions I had. I would happily recommend Lynn to anyone looking for an editor and am hoping to continue working with her myself.

Writers are an insecure bunch at the best of times - is it good enough, is the plot too obvious, will anyone buy it, what if I missed some grammatical error, I wish I had a friend who was kind, reliable and competent so that she could guide me through all this.
And luckily for me, I found that 'friend' in Lynn Worton who painstakingly went through my manuscript word by word, made corrections, suggested alterations (and, in one massive burst of inspiration, discovered a better location for one chapter which was proving difficult to 'home'). More importantly, Lynn didn't attempt to change my 'voice' and is receptive to authors' reasons why they think something should not be changed.
If you need this kind of guidance when writing your book, then you need look no further.
Thank you, Lynn, for your patience and expertise.

Lynn Worton’s skill and editorial style, combined, make her the go-to editor if you want your manuscript to shine. Her work is thorough and turn-around time and fees reasonable. She is articulate and well versed in essential literary devices, especially those tried and true.

It has been a great pleasure working with Lynn. She has done an amazing job editing my manuscript. Because of her keen eye, sharp editing skills and helpful feedback, my manuscript is polished and ready for public presentation. I feel confident in moving forward with my final draft that I wouldn’t have otherwise felt had it not been for her help. She is an amazing editor with great communication and detailed correspondence. I will be returning back for future writing projects and look forward to working with her again. I highly recommend!

Lynn was an absolute delight to work with. She was fast, responsive and gave me regular updates on her progress and her thoughts. Being a first-time author I was worried about giving up my story for editing but Lynn was very reassuring and understanding. I had looked at a number of other editors and found that they were either far too expensive or not at a good standard. Lynn offers an affordable service with excellent results. I can not recommend her enough.

I have recently started working with Lynn Worton, she was recommended by an author friend of mine for her proofreading and editing skills. At first, I looked at her webpage, business profile. When I first spoke to Lynn and explained my potential needs and my reservations based on some negativity surrounding the publishing world, Lynn answered all my questions honestly and openly. Now after working with Lynn on several of my children’s books which about to go to print, Lynn has proven to be incredibly helpful, patient and a great asset. I find her advice, help and work ethic second to none. I hope also I will carry on working with Lynn for some time to come.
