I was fortunate to have Lindz as a TA at The Writer’s Hotel in NYC. We immediately connected, and after several agents expressed interest in my story, she offered to help edit my novel before submitting. I jumped at the chance. Wow, was it one of the smarter decisions I’ve made! Lindz has profoundly elevated my work. Characters have greater depth, prose flows with increased ease, scenes feel alive where once they felt flat. I can’t recommend Lindz enough. She’s a game changer.

Lindz has edited several flash fiction pieces for me at an incredibly reasonable rate - it's unbelievable the value you got for your dollar - and she has one of the most competitive manuscript editing prices I've seen. Many times you get what you pay for - but this is Lindz, so she goes well above and beyond. One of my biggest hesitations with doing a full manuscript edit was despair about whether this manuscript would take me to the next level - but I have learned so many lessons from Lindz from sentence flow to tugging at the weak points in my plot to polishing my characters until they shine, that I will carry into my future manuscripts. On top of everything else, Lindz was in constant communication - messaging me thoughts at the end of chapters, telling me when they'd be able to get to my story next, and sending encouragement. I never felt let down or disappointed - even when making suggestions, Lindz is as positive and empowering as one could be! Truly. I am convinced that Lindz is a caffeinated robot that doesn't sleep because I don't see how else she can juggle everything, including the incredible amount of time she donates to other writers starting their careers.
Jonathan Kaufman, author of Burying The Pawn
Working with Lindz on my novel was one of the best decisions I made. She has such a good feel for fiction, and was able to help me in so many ways - with dialogue tags, foreshadowing, addressing fourth wall issues, eliminating extraneous language, and reorganizing passages so the plot would flow more smoothly. She proposed workable solutions without being intrusive. Occasionally, she challenged me to think of alternate perspectives so that I could introduce nuance and thereby make the novel more effective. And, after edits to the novel were completed, she provided useful feedback for my query letter and synopsis. Lindz is not only a superb editor, but such a pleasure to work with!
