More than just making corrections to grammar and punctuation, what I try to do is create a writing course tailored to your specific needs based around your manuscript. Expect lots of comments and edits in the track changes that will teach you important aspects of writing fiction and serve you well for everything you write. Hiring an editor is an investment in your writing ability as much as it's about perfecting your book, and my goal is to make sure that investment pays off for you many times over.

Jason is a gem! Professional with fabulous guidance, he helped me enormously to get my manuscript into shape. Picking up errors I'd read over and over and never spotting them. Thank you Jason! I will be using your fabulous services again.

Jason not only excelled in the role as Copy Editor on my novel, but he provided valuable insights into a number of things that went above and beyond the call of duty. I was amazed at his attention to detail and how fast he completed the job. Also he is expert in providing feedback while taking into account a writers fragile ego!

Jason was an excellent collaborator to work with. He assisted me in editing my book, providing invaluable insights and feedback that was refreshingly honest and hard to come by. His availability to answer any questions that arose during the project was a real asset. His competitive rates make him an attractive choice for future collaborations, and I would happily work with him again.

Jason is an amazing editor and I can't recommend him highly enough! If there were more than 5 stars in each of the above categories he would get them all. He will definitely be editing edit all of our future books and I am sure that the results will be as stellar as they are for God Knows No Heroes.
