Flawless Fiction


“Rose Marie catches mistakes missed by the closest eye. She offers great suggestions and alternatives and pays attention to plot details. I completely trust her for a thorough read-through and complete copy edits!”

“I am delighted to recommend Rose Lipscomb’s editing services. She came highly recommended from another Amazon self-publishing author who is a rigorous perfectionist in her own right. I contacted Rose to copy edit and proofread one of my books. Her response came within the hour and even though she was busy with other jobs, she worked with me to help me meet my deadline during a holiday! Since this was my first time to work with an editor, I was, naturally, nervous. But she was extremely efficient and helpful, and I found her editing to be over and above anything I had hoped for. Currently, she is editing my next book, which gives me great peace of mind.”

“Rose is a pleasure to work with. She provided efficient and thorough edits, including pointing out content issues such as plot holes, dropped threads, and inconsistent concepts. We worked through multiple rounds of edits and discussed issues as needed. I would gladly work with her in the future and plan to use her editing services again.”

“Wow! I can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done. I had no idea there were so many errors in the collection. My final proofer is blown away also, and after looking at your list, he spent a long time saying things like, “I can’t believe I missed that!” and “I’m so embarrassed!” . We’re both thrilled with what you’ve so kindly done.”

“I just made the last of the corrections. Oh my word, you are awesome, and I feel completely embarrassed about some of the things you caught. I swear, I did edit it before I sent it to you. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! I personally requested that you edit my book. It was one of my conditions to publishing through [this publisher]. You catch things that other editors missed.”

"Rose has a keen eye for even the smallest errors in a sea of words. She is smart, dependable, and professional, and she'll turn your manuscript into one you'll be confident is error free. Her work is done quickly with great results, and she was able to find things that I didn't---even after dozens of rounds of self-edits!"

Parker Huntington

“Rose did an excellent job. She didn't try to change my voice or writing style, yet she caught issues that needed to be corrected and questioned logistical aspects of the story so that I knew I had to add in details for the readers. She struck a fantastic balance between knowing when to trust the writer and knowing when to offer advice.”

Ella Apollodorus

“When I first started writing five years ago, it didn’t occur to me how important a good editor would be. There was no doubt that my punctuation and grammar would most certainly be corrected, and some content would have to be altered, but it never dawned on me how much moral support an author needs as we journey toward our finished product.

As an editor, Rose was extremely helpful and tactful in many ways—not only in sharing dialogue options—but also in sharing a plethora of writing style examples. I found her delightful to work with and always positive while guiding me in the right direction.

Don’t hesitate.  She’s top notch and professional!”

"I was lucky enough to get a word-of-mouth introduction to Flawless Fiction just as I was getting ready to publish my first novel. I don’t know for sure, but I suspect first-timer authors can be a little difficult to work with. I was so scared, and I agonized over everything. Rose was absolutely wonderful. She oh-so-patiently answered all of my questions—thoughtfully and thoroughly. In fact, I now keep some of her words of wisdom scribbled on a piece of paper next to me when I write. I always knew if I was confused or needed help with something, she would respond quickly and without making me feel silly for asking. All of her edits were spot on and she went above and beyond a standard proofing service. Stars would not be Stars if Rose had not given me plenty of fat to chew on through the entire process. I cannot recommend her services highly enough."

“Rose Marie edited my recent entry into the Heart of Denver Romance Writers’ Molly contest [An international competition]. Because of her help, my entry, Oubliette, won two awards—the 2013 First Place Winner for Historical Romance and the 2013 Heart of the Molly Award [The overall award].  She gives professional advice that is honest and insightful, yet encouraging. She will be my go-to gal for all my future editing needs! I highly recommend her.”

“You are amazing!!! Thank you SO much. I’ll tackle these in the next week or so and make the changes so I can upload a new, shiny version. I feel like I hit the jackpot with you, I can’t thank you enough and am genuinely touched that you went through all this effort just for me.” (This was a post-publication review.)

"Rose has been editing my books for over two years. She first edited one of my books for free. Seeing her talent, I immediately hired her to edit the rest of my 20+ books. It amazes me how thorough she is with editing. She not only catches even the smallest of grammatical errors but also inconsistencies in the scenes. She’s professional and incredibly easy to work with. It’s my secret pleasure to read her comments on her perception of the scenes and some of the odd behaviors of the characters. I appreciate her efforts and the countless hours she puts in on improving my books. I can wholeheartedly say she beautifies my work."

​​"Rose Lipscomb is the best copy editor I’ve ever worked with. I have a few books, which were edited by other persons (I didn’t know Rose back then), My experience has been that copy editors usually introduce errors, don't understand grammar or style as well as I do, make challenges based on their own ideas, beliefs, and feelings, and, generally, just cause a lot of extra work and frustration for me.  But Rose has none of those flaws. She’s a dream to work with because she finds real problems, issues that need to be dealt with, and otherwise has a light touch, not introducing any new problems. She manages to go over a book diligently but also respectfully. I feel very lucky to have had her eye on three of my novels now."

"Thanks a lot for your edits. I found them very useful and have been incorporating the changes. They're so detailed and I see you picked up on stuff I missed."
