“For when the heart goes before, like a lamp, and illumines the pathway,
Many things are made clear, that else lie hidden in darkness.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,
- Do you want to be a great writer?
- Can you win your audience with words?
- Are you going to be recognized as a professional?
- Is your story passing safely from concept to completion?
- Will your book outshine the competition?
• EXPERIENCED EDITOR-MENTORS WILL HELP YOU •
Becoming a great writer is an acquired skill. Raw talent can express itself in your ability to understand and use written words to communicate, but that expression will not be realized to the full unless you are guided – mentored – by someone who can provide you with the tools that allow the bud of your talent to blossom forth in a mature bloom.
Winning your reading audience with words comes with graduating from writer to wordsmith. Again, this is a skill you must learn. Our mentors, with their many years of writing and editing experience, will teach you to win your audience with words.
Being recognized as a professional means setting yourself apart from the crowd. With more than half a million books self-published and independently published annually, it’s too easy to get lost in the shuffle. Our mentors can give you the edge of excellence that raises you head and shoulders above the rest and makes you the go-to professional others seek out.
Standing tall next to the best that are published should be the goal of every writer who aspires to make a mark as a professional author in any genre. We can teach you to gear your writing toward this goal.
Writing is an art form. Like a great sculpture, it needs to be shaped and molded from concept through creation with capable hands and carefully chosen tools to assure its safe passage to completion. Our mentors help you find your voice, hone your expression, fine-tune your presentation, and bring your work to life.
With more than 100,000 books published annually, it’s an understatement to say the competition is fierce. How can you compete with the best and not get lost in the shuffle? To outshine the competition, your book must reflect excellence in presentation, content, and design.

"One of the best things I have done as a writer is to hire Linda Lane. Not only has she painstakingly edited the drafts of my three novels and eleven companion shorts, but she has also helped me to develop skills that I use every time I sit down to write. Her suggestions and corrects are always offered in a positive framework which allows me to accept, change, or apply them in ways that feel right to me. If you want an editorial partner who respects you and your work, I highly recommend Linda Lane."
