“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 […]

“Jessica’s editing instructions are insightful and clear. She said, “Move this sentence down three paragraphs.” I did, and then the story flowed effortlessly.

Not only is Jessica an incredible writer, her editing skills are outstanding. I never imagined I could write YA fantasy, but with a mere mention to her about a character I’d imagined, she began coaching me to turn the character into a story. Her insight for character development and plot are invaluable.

You have picked me up on so many things I didn’t even know I was doing! Thank you so much for energising* me to make this story into something so much better than it is. […]
