“Lora pours herself into a story. While she catches typos and copy errors, she has other profound gifts for seeing the intricate details as well as the full essence of characters, plot, story, and settings. She edits as much as she nurtures the story, making sure all the elements come alive on the page–and that they remain consistent from start to finish. It’s the kind of editing that can transform a good book into a great book. I highly recommend Lora’s work.”

“I employed Lora as a substantive editor who could bring my work into line with the current standards and practices of Christian writing in the mystery/suspense/thriller genre. Lora certainly did that! Her work was quick, thorough, and professional in all regards, and the first book she edited for me was a Carol Award finalist. I highly recommend her.”

“Words cannot describe the meticulous detail Lora takes in her editing projects. She stays informed of the current publishing guidelines and has exceptional knowledge in grammar and content editing! Her love for good writing is well reflected in the edits and suggestions she has given to me as a published author. And Lora’s expertise and genuine desire for the written word to flow truly blesses the reader. I have used many editors over the years but Lora is by far gifted by God and absolutely one of the best out there! Her edits of my book will make a world of difference to my readers and her exhaustive tweaking has been instrumental in my success as a writer.”

“It’s not easy to find an editor who cares as much about your novel as you do, but Lora is a real gem. She knows her stuff, and she goes far and beyond the call of duty to make your novel the best that it can be. If you’re looking for someone to partner with to get your ‘baby’ in tip-top shape, someone who will be honest but kind, someone who’ll be there to offer clarity among the confusion, then look no further.”

“I have worked with many editors over my writing career and it is rare to find someone with Lora’s gift of seeing the true heart of a book and the heart of each and every character. She provides detailed feedback that includes the logic behind her comments and goes the extra mile to offer wonderful suggestions on making changes. She doesn’t try to change an author’s voice and is a great encourager with her positive feedback. And if that’s not enough, she works quickly to meet the author’s deadline, and she is diligent to meet her deadlines as well. I know that my books are far better for Lora’s wonderful touch!”

She reads carefully and thoroughly, and has an eye for the small details as well as the high-level principles needed to make a story sing. I highly recommend her work.”
