“My book wasn’t even live yet on Amazon when author friends, reviewers, and interviewers were asking me who did my editing and formatting! I’m honored to pass on the word to everyone that it was Lillie Ammann.
Lillie not only did the most professional job of editing I’ve ever had (including a little critique where necessary) but she formatted my book for CreateSpace, Digital Platform, Lulu, and Smashwords. Each of those have different (and picky) requirements that would have sent me screaming from their sites. But Lillie accomplished it all in very little time and even made sure my Table of Contents was hyperlinked in every pertinent electronic version.
As a self-published author it’s extremely important to me that every aspect beyond my own writing is so professional that each element can stand out and shine on its own merit. Lillie Amman made the happen for my lil handbook, The Rewritten Word: How to Sculpt Literary Art, No Matter the Genre .”

From an interview with Borge Hansen, author of My Life Story: Adventures of THE GREAT DANE:
Lillie: After the time, effort, and money that you spent, how satisfied are you with the results?
Borge: I’m very happy with the book. It turned out really good.

by Margaret Blincoe:
“To Lillie Ammann, my editor: I am deeply indebted to you for your invaluable insight and feedback. You took the baby (book), cleaned it up, and made it presentable. Words are inadequate for the appreciation I have for you. Thank you.”
From Special Thanks to … in Journal: Intimate Writings of a Relationship with God by Aundrea Hernandez:
“Lillie Ammann, your support, encouragement, and help have helped to bring this book into the world.”
From the Acknowledgements page of Adam’s Daughters: Book 2 in the Westward Sagas by David Bowles:
“Lillie Ammann edited and formatted Adam’s Daughters. The process of producing a book is similar to what I imagine giving birth to a baby would be like. As Peggy Mitchell was a midwife delivering babies, Lillie is a midwife helping authors give birth to their books.”
From the Dedication page of Re-Deal: A Time-Travel Thriller by Richard Turner:
“I also offer a special thanks to my editor and friend Lillie Ammann, whose passion for paring words made this book possible.”
“I first met Writer and Editor Lillie Ammann in 2005 through a professor of English who recommended her as an excellent publisher. During that first phone call, I knew Lillie was the one to help me make my dream come true.
I basically had the story and the pictures, Lillie did everything else. In no time at all, she had my work in beautiful, lasting form.
I found Lillie knowledgeable and affordable, the end result was a first-rate publication. Having published so many books, she knows how to captivate an audience and market a book.
On top of her professional reputation in the industry, I saw Lillie put her heart into my project. I am forever thankful for such a wonderful experience.”
James Doughty, author of Some Monument to Last
“My executive coaching and career transition company has outsourced work to Lillie for more than five years. She has written a company style guide; drafted and edited proposals, reports, and training materials; worked on numerous resumes; and completed many other assignments. She is an excellent writer and editor, and her understanding of business enables her to contribute valuable insights that make the projects she works on more effective. She always goes above and beyond, and I appreciate her timely response and great work.”

From the Acknowledgments in the Christian nonfiction book On the Wings of the Wind: A Journey to Faith by Patricia Eytcheson Taylor and James C. Taylor:
“A special thank you to our editor, Lillie Ammann, whose professionalism and invaluable assistance and guidance, with her loving patience and suggestions, made this book a dream come true.”
From an e-mail from author Ben Ferguson, whose work-in-progress God, I’ve Got a Problem is an update of a previous work that was in print for 20 years:
“You helped more than you realize. After the first couple chapters I found myself looking at a sentence and asking ‘What will Lillie say?’ As you can tell, I paid attention to your thoughts and suggestions. You have been a BIG help to me.”
“My name is Jerry Wayne. I am the National Sales Manager for a manufacturing company that was established in 1983. I’ve known Lillie for well over 10 years. She has helped our company portray a professional image in many ways. She has a unique talent for addressing customers’ complaints to their satisfaction. She is very proficient in writing/editing articles that concern our industry. She always handles these matters in a very unbiased and straightforward way as she takes the time to research all sides of an issue. Over the top customer service, knowledgeable and caring, that’s Lillie.”
from the Acknowledgements of Spring House (The Westward Sagas, Book 1) by David Bowles:
“Lillie Ammann, freelance editor and author of Stroke of Luck, edited Spring House for me. She has kept me pointed in the right direction since the inception of this book, steering me back toward the center when my writing drifted away from the story line. She has taught me much about the craft of writing. Her knowledge of the publishing industry has kept me from making a lot of mistakes, and for that I am thankful.”
“My name is Richard Turner and I am known as ‘The Cheat!’ For over thirty years I have traveled the world entertaining the rich, powerful, famous, and infamous with a deck of cards.
I say that to say this. I have been working with Lillie on some writing projects for about three years, and I know quality. Lillie is quality! She is diligent, studious, thorough in her editing -and what makes her a true value is that she loves her work!”
From the Acknowledgements of ACCOUNTING FOR STUDENT AND SCHOOL SUCCESS IN HIGH POVERTY, HIGH MINORITY SCHOOLS: A CONSTRUCTIVIST APPROACH by Mary Jane Miller, Dissertation for the the Degree of Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership at the University of Texas at San Antonio:
“Finally, to Lillie Ammann, although I met you very late in the process, I believe that you were the light that saw me through to the end. It has been both a professional and a personal pleasure to work with you during the editing process.”
