“As my book, The Resilience Advantage was moving through its editorial process, I was disappointed in the quality of the editing work done by my publisher. Before I started receiving the final galleys, I knew I had to take independent action. After talking with several of my professional colleagues who had written successful books, one name kept coming up as someone who could help me with my editing. That name was Linda Popky. I knew Linda as an author, having read her excellent book, Marketing Above the Noise, but I had no idea that she also edited manuscripts.

“I was in a bit of a time crunch, as we were far along in the process, but Linda immediately stepped up to the plate and completed a comprehensive review of my manuscript. She made grammatical corrections, language suggestions, and  created footnotes. Her review was thorough and accurate. After sending the manuscript back to the publisher, they expressed appreciation for having received such a well-edited version.”

“Hire Linda only if you want an error-free manuscript or well written document. With her keen eye for detail and facility with language, you’ll benefit from accuracy, precision, and clarity.”

“I wanted to send you a note of deep gratitude for all of your incredible wisdom, humor and insight to help me with my first book. A Higher Bid was lifted immeasurably because of you. You are THE editor supreme!”

“Linda was a great sounding board and demonstrated a true understanding of my business that made her a huge value to me during the time we worked together. She paid close attention to what I said during discussions and was able to capture the essence of what I wanted with ease. In other words, she doesn’t just create something but she also made sure that it reflected the values of my company and provided a lot of value over and above what was requested. Linda is a huge asset to anyone that works with her, she understands business and intuitively delivers value above and beyond.”

Mike Austin

“Linda’s edits were insightful and delivered fast. She is far more valuable than a copy editor because she understands the content.”

“Working with Linda was the breath of fresh air my book proposal needed. Linda brought a level of clarity and direction that made my proposal more readable, more compelling, and I know significantly more attractive to a publisher. Thank you, Linda!”
