Jeannine Thibodeau – Editor

I've been an editor for 20 years now, and I've done everything from line editing, copy editing, and proofreading from academia to fiction.


Line editor, copy editor, and proofreader of everything from academia (3rd grade to college texts, in English grammar/lit, US & world history) to fiction--from romance and erotica, mystery and thrillers. I am generally known to be VERY easy to work with--give me some instruction on what you need, and I will take it to the next level. I'm also known for getting my work in early, and I'm very communicative throughout your projects. I won't pat you on the head and say "Great job," but I WILL make your work shine and be the very best it can be.

A great professional to work with! I'm a new writer and needed meticulous copy editing for my debut. A great job by this editor and would consider working with her again in the future.

Jeanine is incredibly skilled at editing, and she proved to me how important it is to have an editor. It was amazing (and embarrassing) how many things in my novel she found that needed to be revised. I'm grateful to her, and I appreciate that she didn't expect me to saw off my arm to pay for her expertise.

Jeannine was great! I will absolutely reach out to her again in the future if/when I ever write another book! She is professional but also has a caring touch to her personality. She put so much love into my story. I couldn't be more grateful. She was incredible.

I don't want to brag, but I took first place in a statewide grammar and writing test in high school. So.
