"In the past ten years of publishing people's books, I've worked with many editors. It wasn't until I found Lynette Smith of All My Best that I found consistency, accuracy, excellent editing skills, and great suggestions with the manuscripts. Lynette is truly professional and a joy to work with. Her work makes my publishing company and authors look good. One of them even wrote, 'Lynette, I love you and I don't even know you. I feel so safe with you on this project.' Indeed, Lynette Smith is the best!"

"When I began my writing career in earnest, I found someone who not only helped make my voice clearer but tightened up my prose in the process. Without the services of Lynette Smith at that critical juncture, I honestly believe I would be foundering right now, still looking for a capable, objective copyeditor to work with. Lynette is more than a copyeditor. She is a cheerleader, a candid yet sensitive resource to bounce one's work off of and, as it turns out – a friend. If you're looking for a copyeditor, look no further than Lynette Smith and All My Best. She has all the above attributes plus connections in the San Diego (and beyond) literary world, and all for a fair, competitive price."
