"Everyone worries about the quality of their writing"

Why should you contact Jessica to edit your work?

Jessica is completely non-judgemental

Everyone worries about the quality of their writing.

Jessica often works with people who are concerned their work is in 'a terrible state'. In fact, people often admit to her that they've taken so long to do anything with their writing simply because they were afraid of being judged.

With a great sea of authors in the world, it's understandable that people worry how they'll compare. From my own experience, it doesn't matter what state your writing is in, Jessica can make any text ship-shape.

Complete satisfaction guaranteed

As with most things in life, communication is key. Jessica ensures your requirements are understood before work begins and keeps regular contact to keep you updated on her progress. Every single one of her clients to date has been delighted with the work she has produced.

Jessica is a published author

"Jessica has so far published six novels"

Her very first novel, The Former World, reached number one on Amazon's list for its genre when the book was made available as a free trial promotion.

Jessica has also published a book of her own short stories, plus a non-fiction book on creative writing and two non-fiction titles in the self-development space.

Complete confidentiality guaranteed

All work you submit to Jessica is in total confidence. Your ideas and works-in-progress will remain protected.

Jessica also ghostwrites for numerous individuals, which by its very nature requires confidentiality.

You always own the copyright

This may sound obvious but when Jessica edits work for you, the copyright always remains with you. Her job is solely to make the best of your work.
"Jessica is upfront from the get-go about costs"

There are no hidden fees

As you would want and expect, Jessica is upfront from the get-go about costs. Example costs are given below.

Jessica ran writing competitions to discover new writing talent

Before focusing on her editing work, Jessica ran a well-known and respected monthly writing competition, 'Darker Times Fiction'.

Numerous books have been published featuring the winning stories from these competitions.

How much does Jessica charge for editing?

The two most common services Jessica provides are:

in-depth editing (which includes correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation, and other major errors, as well as focusing on enhancing sentence structure, ensuring consistency in style and clarity, and improving the overall flow and coherence of your manuscript), and

developmental editing (in addition to the above services, this package involves comprehensive editing that addresses the content, structure, organisation, and overall effectiveness of your manuscript. It can include reorganising chapters, suggesting additions or deletions, and ensuring your manuscript meets its intended purpose and audience).

In-depth editing costs £30 per 1000 words, with developmental editing costing £60 per 1000 words.

All packages include a full final proofread at no additional cost, worth £20 per 1000 words.
