This was my first time publishing a novel, and using an editor.
I didn't have a great run back when I was in my early teens and showed someone my work, I was told my writing is too dark and no one will want to read it. So I was a little nervous to open up to someone's critique again.
But Lynne was exceptional to work with. She was open to talk to, she hit me with areas I could improve on as well as complements in areas I did well. She was nice and analysed my work with kind words.
She was supportive and encouraging. She didn’t push me in any directions or insert her own opinion/writing style into my words, she worked with me and not against me. She keep the words/pace of my characters and she adapted her edits to the vibe of my characters.
She's continued to be open for follow up questions after her initial edit. She's offered advice in publishing and resources to use to help.
And her pricing is affordable for authors in the self publishing game.
I look forward to working with her again in the future.
E.P. Writer - Fiction and Fantasy Author
"I knew that I needed an editor for my book , but finding a good editor is not easy. Fortunately, I found Lynne. The relationship between an editor and a writer is predominately one of trust, after all you are allowing them to work on your “baby”, something you have put hundreds of hours work and thought into.
Lynne provided a very professional service, she was responsive , attentive and provided much added value other than to just edit a book. She was always available for comment and discussion and in my view went the extra mile to help me understand the industry and the options for publishing.
She is a very good communicator and her commentary, report and ideas for my book were very useful."
Bill Cuneo, Science Fiction Epic Author
"Lynne provided me with more than an editing service. She was prompt, truthful, supportive, and encouraging throughout the whole process. She graced my work by immersing herself in the story, thereby providing feedback which led to a better manuscript. Never interfering with my ‘voice’ in the work, she nevertheless shone a light on ways to improve it. Generous with her time, she helped me to step through the editing process smoothly. Thank you so much Lynne."
Pamela Morrison, Biography Author
“I have been very happy with Lynne’s editing services on my memoir, “It Happened in the Seventies.” Lynne worked collaboratively on various aspects of the book including making structural changes, language choices, consistency of names and events, improving the flow of the narrative and reducing the word count. She is candid, yet tactful, in her feedback and advice. Lynne has provided her expertise in answering my queries about the processes of editing and self-publishing. She has exceeded my expectations and gone beyond her remit in, for example, advising on and assisting with my drafts of the back cover ‘blurb.’
Lynne’s editing services and advice are excellent in every respect. I have no hesitation in highly recommending the services of Lloyd Moss Publishing.”
Dieter Luske, Memoir and Non-Fiction Author
"Lynne is easy to talk to, she is a great listener without being a pushover. She gives suggestions and it’s up to you whether you take her advice. There were a couple of times I doubted her and I asked my friend who is a very experienced HSC English teacher in Sydney. He said not only was she a great editor, but she knew things that very few people in the field did. She was right every single time.
She has gone over and above to help me, always on the end of the phone when I need her. My manuscript has turned from an ugly duckling with a rough diamond in its beak to a graceful swan ready to spread its wings on the lake of publication."
S.J. Ratcliffe, Christian Historical Fiction Author
Lynne provided me with excellent copy-editing for the first three chapters of my novel. She was prompt and supportive, and provided meaningful support that encouraged me to think deeply about aspects of my novel.
I could tell that Lynne was invested in my story and was willing to honestly share her ideas while respecting my decisions. Her attention to detail was excellent and I am incredibly grateful I asked her to do this work for me. Thank you so much, Lynne.
Amanda Mergler, Fiction Author
"Over the past few months, I have endeavoured to follow a passion of mine: writing. While family and close friends urged on my ambition, some even getting the 'honour' of seeing what I had written thus far, it is still important to get an 'outside' view. In other words, someone who is not necessarily obligated to tell you what you want to hear. It is vitally important as an 'emerging' writer to get this point of view, with clear instructions on how better to write a story that will engage a reader.
Lynne helped to put me on a path of improving my writing, which at this stage of my development, I really did need. I would highly recommend you pursue Lynne's advice and services as it has proven invaluable to me."
Greg Prowse, Dystopian Fiction Author
"I had no prior knowledge of Lynne’s editorial skill, or the quality of her service, when I asked her to edit my manuscript. I was not to be disappointed.
Lynne walked through the manuscript with me offering helpful suggestions and encouragement. The end product was a better written piece of work and an improved storyline.
Lynne is a natural communicator and a good listener. Her technical skills are excellent as is her knowledge of the writing and publishing industry. I would gladly recommend Lynne to any aspiring writer."
Brian Gillan, Australian Crime Author
"In the past six months I have used the services of Lloyd Moss Publishers twice. The first was for a book of short stories, and the second a novel. I thoroughly recommend them as I found their expertise in each step of the process commendable. My books were published in a timely manner. I appreciated their advice, eye catching covers to choose from, pleasing format, efficient editing, and willingness to consult and include me along the publishing pathway. Their professional approach made publishing my books memorable."
June Hopkins, Fiction Author
"Lynne was an absolute pleasure to deal with in regard to the initial editing on my novel. She was thorough and concise and made a lot of sense with her editing suggestions. It is so important to have your work looked at by a competent and fresh pair of eyes. An author can become too involved in a manuscript and in doing so not see some obvious improvements. I certainly thoroughly recommend Lynne for her editing work . She is prompt in her replies and a delight to work with."
Baden J. Scholefield, Historical Fiction Author
"I recently wrote a book depicting the life of a prominent Australian historical figure. Although I regard myself as a competent writer, I realised that no matter how many times one reads their own work, some errors evade scrutiny. I therefore thought it prudent to engage an expert to edit my manuscript.
I was referred to Lynne Lloyd of Lloyd Moss Publishing to undertake this mission. Lynne Lloyd has an exemplary ability not only to seek out common errors including spelling, grammar, word meanings and word overuse but she also looks inside the story and suggests changes to emphasise an important point or improve the way the story reads. In one instance, she advised me to provide more detail to enhance an important aspect of the protagonist’s character.
I advise all writers to consider using an editor and highly recommend Lynne at Lloyd Moss Publishing for a prompt, courteous and professional appraisal of your work."
Robert Wyllie, Australian History Author
"I met Lynne through the local Writers meetings where, after my tentative and nervous request, she reviewed my long-time writing efforts of my unpublished novel about a global family dynasty.
After the first reading and with her encouraging comments at a face-to-face consultation, I followed Lynne's suggestions for greater character development and plot consistency and an editing of unnecessary ramblings. After making the suggested improvements, Lynne proofread the second version of my novel.
I enjoyed the hours working with Lynne as she critiqued and offered constructive editing. I may not have thought so at the time, but strong editing was necessary for a better production and Lynne' practical guidance gave me the courage to fulfil my dream to become a published author. Thank you Lynne."
