The strongest feature was your balance of simplicity and depth
Thank you for such an excellent guide!
The strongest feature was your balance of simplicity and depth. I feel like anyone could apply the principles you covered to their work and excel. I can’t suggest anything more because then it would ruin the balance you’ve set up.
I’ve got a lot of work to do on my manuscript… But now I have a better toolset to work with.
I can’t recommend her highly enough
Jessica has now edited two books for me. She is amazing. Not only does she do a brilliant job editing, she has taught me a lot and my writing skills have improved as a result. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Highly skilled senior editor
Jessica’s writing and editing skills are in high demand. She is a highly skilled senior editor and has helped many authors successfully transition to publication. I regularly refer clients to Jessica and cannot recommend her work highly enough.
Sensitive and responsive to the client’s needs
I would recommend Jessica to any author. She is sensitive and responsive to the client’s needs, and is not afraid to do background research to ensure she is prepared for a job
… she had great insight and … I saved so much time
For my second book, I asked Jessica for assistance in the development phase. While she was not familiar with the topic I was writing about she had great insight and as a result of her guidance I saved so much time. I am planning to write a third book and I know I will be asking Jessica to once again guide me right from the start.
Creatively combines her passions
I have worked with Jessica on various community projects, and particularly with the Asylum Seekers Centre. Jessica creatively combines her passions for writing, human rights and the environment to realize practical initiatives, such as Permaculture for the People. Jessica is an inspiration to many, and it is my pleasure to recommend her
Student on my Story Editing Masterclass: There is so much content here and it’s EXCELLENT! The fast pace is perfect because there is the ability to stop a screen, study the image and take in the information. I’m totally impressed with the “umbrella” or “big picture” type of approach. Just excellent.
