Lindsay Schlegel, Freelance Editorial and Creative Services, LLC
Being a mother and wife to my family is my number one job, but it’s not my only job. I’m also a freelance editor and writer, with experience in marketing, publicity, and editorial. I’ve worked at Borders, Candlewick Press, Abrams Books for Young Readers/Amulet Books, Charlotte Sheedy Literary Agency, and Simon & Schuster.
I offer manuscript critiques, query letter reviews, and resume and cover letter guidance. For more information on my background, fees, and writing samples, check out:
“I would recommend Lindsay Schlegel without hesitation. Her editing captured the feel of our project perfectly. She was always timely, and delivered just what we needed. Above all else, Lindsay is a pleasure to work with.” –Sabbithry Persad, author of the Garbology Kids series
“I’ve worked away on the first 3 chapters incorporating your wonderful notes. It’s inspiring having a fresh pair of eyes look at the manuscript. . . . So thank you very much.” –Walter Renfrey, author of Five Nights to the Crimson Moon (Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-Finalist)
“The level of detail in your letter, your changes in the text, and your sweeping look at individual themes are incredibly helpful. You helped me answer some questions that I have been going back and forth on for a long time.” –Dan Boehl, author
“Both myself and Alma Flor really appreciate your input, work style, timeliness and follow-thru which is a rare combination.” –Gabriel Zubizarreta, co-author of Dancing Home and Amalia’s Cards (July 2012), Atheneum Books for Young Readers
