Congratulations! You’re ready to take the next step in getting published: hiring an editor.

Whether planning to self-publish or want to try the traditional route, poorly edited novels will distract readers—and it’s no way to win over agents and publishers. Grab their attention with an unforgettable story, strong voice, and memorable characters.

My services aim to help you do just that, giving you the best shot at success.

“Jennifer is a consistent and detailed editor. She is a consummate professional and communicates well with authors and publishers alike. Her queries to authors are considered and well-formed, and she picks up on changes a less-experienced editor would overlook.”

—Blake Sproule, Editor at Playwrights Canada Press


Proofreading

Rest easy before publication with a thorough proofread. It is the last look before your book makes its way into readers’ hands.

As a certified proofreader I will catch lingering spelling and grammar issues, as well as ensure consistency in style and formatting.


Manuscript Evaluation

Don’t give up on a particularly tricky draft. A broad editorial assessment of a novel, manuscript evaluations cover everything from structure to dialogue.

Highlighting both the strengths and weaknesses, an evaluation acts as a guide for working through the next draft. It’s a fresh perspective when you need it most.

Ensure your writing is refined, effective, and clear. Focusing on readability, sentence-level editing corrects grammar and smooths language.

At this stage you should be happy with both story and structure, ready for an editor who will polish the manuscript without overtaking your unique voice and style.


Mini Line & Copy Edit

Not ready for a full investment? No problem. I’ll dive deep into your first 10,000 words, looking for consistency in grammar and checking for wordiness or repetition.

Learn how to fix common writing errors and work through the rest of your manuscript with a newfound confidence.
