ENDORSEMENTS

 

Mark M., novelist
[Lynn is] the greatest author whisperer.

Alan F., doctoral candidate
Lynn, thank you so much.  Your work is fantastic. I will contact you for my next project.

Iustin Rosioara, M.Sc., CAPM
I had the privilege of working with Lynn Cross on my first self-development book, Wealth Maker or Wishful Thinker. English is not my native language, so I envisioned working with someone who would interpret and convey my message and also smooth out the rough edges. Lynn exceeded all my expectations by providing much more than that; she suggested changes that added value to the content (for clarity) and improved the overall flow of the book. The amount of work, deadlines, and budget were very accurate and did not exceed the initial estimate.  Thank you, Lynn!

Rita J., author of fiction and nonfiction
Beyond editorial savvy, Lynn has great instincts. She captured the essence of my words, and excelled at gently shaping them to enhance clarity for the reader. Along with doing wonderful work, she's delightful and diligent.

Dr. Julius Atemafac, Ed.D, MBA, MSN, BSN, RN-CM/DN
I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Lynn Cross to anyone looking for an expert editor for any writing work, be it a book, article, professional research paper, or a doctoral study.  She is expert at providing timely, accurate edits, and brings added interest and style to everything she works on to make your work readable and ready for publishing. My writing became so much better and tighter once Lynn got her hands on it and did her magic without changing any of the message. Her skills with the English language are the best I have ever come across. Lynn is great to work with because she has a real passion for writing and editing. Just as she did with the prospectus and proposal of my doctoral study, she fine-tuned my completed study, and it was immediately approved by the Chief Academic Officer (CAO) and approved for publishing by ProQuest . . . thanks to Ms. Lynn.

Ted J., master's degree candidate
Lynn is a skilled and professional copy editor. She has it all—she is consistent, prompt, reliable, an effective interpreter of subject, and proficient in verifying details in an ever-changing (MLA style) framework. She is also giving and thoughtful, extending many formatting suggestions.  Although my thesis had already been committee approved, I was looking for someone who would provide final clarifications. Lynn helped to create confident, timely, first and final submissions to my distance extended education graduate studies department.

Mahima Lucille Klinge, author, A Rebel's Guide to Inner Peace. Working with Lynn was absolutely wonderful! The precision she works with is awe inspiring. She was also very encouraging in the process, which made working with her a delight. She tweaked and cleaned up the book in a very intuitive way, keeping my style and voice, but making it so much better. I fully intend to come back to her for all my proofreading and editing!!

Wole Ogundele, professor of English and author
Ms. Cross took twenty diverse scholarly papers, many written by authors whose first language is not English and whose documentation was presented in a variety of styles, and transformed them into a clear, smoothly written, publishable whole in impeccable APA 6 format. She also verified many details and made us all look very good!

Paul D., doctoral candidate
Lynn of Wings for Your Words provided a very detailed analysis of my dissertation.  Without her help, I would have never identified errors I made with my citations, word arrangements, orAPA 6 framework.  I want to let everyone know that she is worth every penny.  

Dennis Kelly, author, BlizzardBall, a novel
Lynn's sharp editing eye and gift for fluid prose made her involvement a positive professional experience.

Ezequiel and Ruth Madanes, authors, From Stuckness to Growth
Lynn's editorial work has been invaluable to us. She's skilled, professional, consistent, and extremely efficient. On top of her amazing talent, she's truly a joy to work with - always prompt, friendly, and incredibly responsive to questions. It's hard to find an editor of her stature.

Leah R., owner, translation service, New York
As a translator, I've had the pleasure of working with Ms. Cross on many different copy editing projects, primarily on text that has been translated into English but also a fair amount of marketing and promotional copy.  The subject matter has ranged from alternative medicine and high-end facial products to website bios, press releases, and explorations of intuitive intelligence in the business world. Her clear editorial voice makes her an essential part of any project that I deliver to a client. She gets to the root of what I'm trying to say with very little difficulty and polishes it to a high shine.  As for her professionalism, she's never missed a deadline and often delivers early, which is a terrific combination to have on your side.

Eve Blackwell, executive director, non-profit arts organizations, Twin Cities area
I am pleased to write this letter for Lynn Cross, affirming her excellent skills in editing and proofreading.  Ms. Cross has edited a variety of publications for my organizations, including press releases, complex programs including histories and biographies, flyers, articles, grant proposals and mass mailings.  Ms. Cross is a "crackerjack" editor and proofreader.  She works quickly, deals easily with colleagues, and is absolutely reliable when meeting deadlines. I can honestly say she makes us look good, and has never let us down.  I recommend Ms. Cross without reservation.

Nancy Schubert, director, University of Minnesota degree program
I am very pleased to recommend Lynn Cross for freelance editorial and proofreading work.

Terry Degner, long-time writer/producer in the Twin Cities area
It has been a pleasure working with Lynn Cross on the book, My Brave Little Man–a memoir that had to be written. I especially appreciate her professional editing and proofreading skills, her patience and perseverance, and her knowledge of working with the story.   I highly recommend her services.  

Greg Ruud, producer of musical storytelling events, and filmmaker, Twin Cities area
Lynn Cross has a wit and personable nature that is rarely found in this world. She has the best of what logic and passion have to give us.

Gabriele Kushi, natural foods writer and educator.  Author of Embracing Menopause Naturally
Lynn is a powerful person with complete knowledge and expertise on how to provide you with the best writing for your professional as well as personal life. She supports your voice and leaves it intact, yet she will straighten up the mechanics and fix things that are not clear, and will only rewrite when needed or justified. I especially enjoy her firm hand in organizing my thoughts and her quick way of returning my edited manuscript.

Fatima Yaylaci, Ph.D. student, University of Minnesota
As a graduate student, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Lynn Cross on my master’s thesis.  She did an excellent job in copy editing and proofreading my thesis with a professional look. I was looking for someone able to understand my work before touching it, and Lynn was a perfect match with her strong background in psychology! She was also very quick in getting the work done. I strongly recommend her, especially for colleagues working in areas of social science.
