Hi! I’m Jessica Vineyard, book editor, world traveler, and lover of life.
Developmental editing, copy editing, manuscript assessment.
Have you just finished writing a book or are in the process of doing so? Congratulations! Seriously, that is a huge accomplishment. Now you need an editor to polish your manuscript to perfection.
If you are in the early stages of writing, you might benefit from developmental editing. Or perhaps you would like a professional opinion, called an assessment, on specific changes that would benefit your manuscript. If you have completed your manuscript, you may be ready to move right into copy editing, which adds the final polish to your manuscript. (See Services and Costs to learn more about these services.)
Please note that I no longer accept fiction projects.
You have come to the right place if you are looking for an editor who:
takes time to understand your message and learn your voice;
understands the importance of moral support while your book is being edited;
gains your confidence through excellent communication and skill; and
walks you through the review process after your manuscript is edited.
