"Line editing, or grammar editing, remains important, regardless of genre or style. Fiction, however, has elements such as plot and characterization that need to be examined. Nonfiction elements include organization and clarity." ~ Author Learning Centre

“I was very impressed working with Tamelynda on completing my book. She did a wonderful job on editing, including rewriting and restructuring sentences and making suggestions that not only made sense but enhanced the reader’s experience. She is dedicated to the process and goes the extra mile and it shows in the reviews the book is receiving. When you work with Tamelynda you get more than a book editor, you get a writing advisor. I look forward to working with her on future projects.” ~ W.T. Hamilton award winning author, speaker and business consultant.
"I had the pleasure of working with Tamelynda on my newly released book, Influential Rapport, Influence and Persuade in Work, Life, and Leisure. Tamelynda brought an incredible amount of insight and perspective to the book and really helped focus areas that might otherwise have been confusing to the reader. Her ability to clarify key points definitely made the book better.
I would highly recommend engaging Tamelynda on your next project as every author needs a third party view to really help bring the book to life." ~ James Seeto author of Influential Rapport, Influence and Persuade in Work, Life and Leisure (Amazon) and The 5 Keys To Hypnotic Selling.
"As a new and inexperienced author in the process of writing a textbook for a very niche audience, I needed support and guidance to ensure that my book would be a high-quality product ready for publishing. Tamelynda Lux’s guidance throughout the editing process was an invaluable learning experience that has already improved my writing skills. By providing “fresh eyes,” she helped to resolve numerous errors I was overlooking. Her feedback helped me to communicate my message more clearly. I would recommend Tamelynda’s editing services to any serious writer about turning out a professional product. I plan to employ her services again in the future." ~ Wendie Webber author of The Devil’s Therapy: Hypnosis Practitioner’s Essential Guide to Effective Regression Hypnotherapy (Amazon)
"Tamelynda is professional and very good at her work. Grammar tends to be one of my weaknesses and a big reason I held back from writing. Tamelynda was able to provide for me just what I needed. She kept my voice and improved my writing while giving extremely helpful feedback. She is also very patient as I was new to this process and she was kind enough to guide me through it. I plan on using her for my next book!" ~ Becky Kronske author of You Are Your Soulmate: Choosing to love and accept all parts of yourself (Amazon)
"I was most appreciative of Tamelynda editing my book. She provided precise information, allowing me to decide what to do with her editing suggestions. She gave back to me a polished edited manuscript without hampering or losing my voice in the writing. Tamelynda shared her editing insights, bringing together what I wished to express with much greater clarity. She is a professional who understands the importance of allowing an author, like me, to bring my best to the written page." ~ Dr. Larry W. Cowan author of Taking Care of Self when no one else will (Amazon)
"Tamelynda was recommended to me as an editor after I had several bad, yet expensive, experiences working with strangers. I taught college writing for nearly 30 years and any writer knows that one cannot truly edit or proofread one's own work. I admit to being a little uncomfortable paying by the hour but Tamelynda fairly estimated her time and did a wonderful job. It was a pleasure working with her and look forward to working with her on my next project." ~ Joseph Onesta author of Uneasy Faith: How to Survive Religious Trauma without Sacrificing Spirituality (Amazon)
"Tamelynda Lux edited my first book, and there are several things that I appreciate about her quality and style of editing. She does not take away your voice. Each time she would complete a section of my book, she would send back the version that still contained the mark-ups to see the original with her suggestions, and also she attached the 'clean' version, which had all of her edits with mark-ups removed. Tamelynda is very detailed oriented and provided a wealth of suggestions throughout the manuscript with explanations and questions that prompted me to clarify passages that would enhance the reading audience's understanding. Something that was extremely wise of her is her advice on the referencing of scripture. I had no experience in this area of referencing. Finally, in addition to her price being absolutely fair and reasonable, she provided a scholarly level of editing that matched and surpassed many of my professors who served on my thesis and dissertation committees in graduate school. With Tamelynda Lux, you have the whole package of wisdom and input for the making of a great publication!” ~Joan Weathersbee Ellason, Ph.D. LPC author of Finally.......the How To of Forgiveness: A Three-Tier Approach to Dry Your Tears (Amazon)
"As one who has waited a while to become a published author, one thing I’ve longed to casually and comfortably say is, “my editor . . .”
Tamelynda Lux and I seemed to have connected and hit it off immediately. While we are geographically miles apart, our Zoom meetings always feel warm and personable. That’s exactly what I need and want when I’m engaged in something as intimate and creative as writing.
Of course, Tamelynda has the technical skills needed to catch and correct the too-often-there and overlooked grammatical errors. What means so much to me is her ability to collaborate and hear my voice in my writing and hold true to it in the finished results.
It’s been said, a truly talented dancer makes their dance partner look like a star. Well, that’s what Ms. Lux does as an editor.
I am fortunate and grateful to now have someone as gifted as Tamelynda Lux to call my editor! I look forward to many more dances."
"I found Tamelynda on the higher end cost-wise but, my book came out shining. As the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for" certainly applies here. On top of getting a nicely edited book, I got lots of knowledge out of the deal. I started with very little, next to none, and at least now I have a clue. Tamelynda helped me understand the flow of how it all comes together. Thank You Tamelynda"
"Tamelynda reviewed and edited my children’s book (my first), and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. I am a former English and ESL (English as a second language) teacher, studied journalism, and thought I knew how to write. The good news is I can write, but Tamelynda’s keen eye and sense of the story really helped to polish the finished product. For one thing, she can see the story from the reader’s perspective and make suggested changes that round out the delivery of the content. For any author in need of comprehensive editing, I gladly recommend Tamelynda!" ~ Greg Gibbs, author of The Hummingbird That Could (coming soon!)
