I did an experiment! With friends. My friends and I wrote this week’s essay together. It was pretty fun writing with other people.  This is the first time I ever tried it, and I may try it again in the future. When the world is on fire I turn to my writer friends because they […]

You’re invited to get stuff done with me at 9 a.m. CST this Friday morning. Since stay-at-home started, writing has been hard.  Really hard.  Which surprised me, because I’ve been working from home going on five years now, and I’m an introvert.  In reality, very little about my daily workflow changed, but turns out cutting […]

About working with me...

“Jessica’s editing instructions are insightful and clear. She said, “Move this sentence down three paragraphs.” I did, and then the story flowed effortlessly. She has an eagle eye for spotting the best place to begin a story. After I get a piece back from her, I’m inspired and can’t wait to start writing. She’s easy to work with, she welcomes my questions, and stops when my sensitive writer’s ego can’t take another suggestion. Because of her editing, my third published book is quantum leaps better than my first one.”

“A very perceptive editor whose feedback is spot-on, insightful, and acutely intelligent. Jessica helped me improve my work in a way that I could not have done by myself.”

“Jessica was great to work with. She’s a fast communicator and her edits were spot on. I could give many examples but I’ll focus on one major problem I had. I’m on the third revision of my WIP and it’s been through three BETA readers who thought something was off on the structure. Nobody could really pinpoint exactly what it was but something wasn’t working. Jessica immediately identified the problem and had three great suggestion on how I could fix it. I’m halfway through her suggested edits and she was right! I highly recommend her!”
