Overview

Jennifer knows a good book when she sees one. Being an agent taught her to find books with great stories and how to spot one within the first three chapters. She knows how to break up info dumps and fill plot holes. Don’t know if you have these issues? Ask for a developmental edit.


Jennifer was first traditionally published by a small publisher and knows how that works as an author, but as an editor at a small publishing house, she understands both sides of the business.


Whether you need editing services or help with perfecting your query submission materials, Jenn’s your go-to. If you are reaching for the Top 5, she can critique your submission materials, and give advice on the best ways to query. There is an art to writing a good query, and synopsis, and you definitely want your sample writing to shine! Send your materials to Jennifer and she will edit and advise.


It’s a big step and you don’t want just anyone “messing with” your book baby. Especially when you get what you pay for. But before you decide, click on over to her testimonials page where you can see what some of her other clients have to say! [www|frontpageediting|com/testimonials] Professionally, she has edited 70+ novels in a variety of genres, but she specializes in YA fantasy, as it is her favorite genre to both read and write.



"Jenn Haskin was a dream to work with! Her comments are incisive and helpful. I never felt like she was tearing down; she was always building up. Highly recommend Jenn with your baby!"

~Nancy Nau Sullivan (Author of The Boys of Alpha Block)


"Jenn is very thorough, observant, personable, communicative/responsive, and overall great to work with. She cares about the author and your work — she wants your book to do as well as you do. She works hard, well, and quickly."

~Rachel Passer (Author of The King of Minear’s Son)

Work experience

Associate Editor

TouchPoint Press
September, 2019 – Present (over 3 years)

I have edited various genres for this publisher as a developmental and copy or line editor. My clients feel that I am very helpful with developmental editing. I love helping to tighten up a story and find spots that have been looked over. I can gently polish your book baby with a light but thorough hand.

Senior Editor

Self-employed
September, 2019 – Present (over 3 years)

I edit from the perspective of a literary agent looking for a submission to choose, as a publishing house editor who wants to polish your book before publication, and finally, as a published author who has learned what people are buying.
