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.

Jason was great to work with! He's super fast and responsive. He's the best editor I've worked with.

Jason was incredible! I'm a first-time author, and he was very detailed and thorough with his notes and suggestions. He has helped polish my manuscript and taught me a lot along the way. He got back even quicker than projected, too. I'm coming back to him for all future editing projects.
