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.

Overview

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.

I had collaborated with Jeannine before in a previous book, The Stick: A Family's Journey, and was very satisfied with her work. Once again, she proved her worth in editing The Thirteenth Diary. She was ahead of schedule and very thorough.
