Overview

Since 2005, I've put my communications and journalism degree from Lipscomb University (Tennessee) to work in the writing & editorial field providing editorial work for manuscripts. I've worked with top publishers and companies such as LifeWay, Harper Collins, Thomas Nelson, Ramsey Solutions, YouVersion (app), Vanderbilt University, Lipscomb University and more! I also work for individuals with smaller companies who need assistance with their business proposal documents, marketing emails (clever and attractive wording grabs potential clients and drives sales!), content for blogs or websites, and more.

The services I offer on reedsy are editing manuscripts (editorial assessment, developmental editing, copy editing, proofreading) and writing and editing content for newsletters, marketing materials, websites, apps, blogs . . . Basically, if you or your company needs anything written or edited, I can get it done! Also, I provide one-on-one coaching for authors in need of support and guidance in getting their book completed while staying on a productive timeline.

I absolutely love working with authors on any genre of fiction. My experience with business and leadership books is over a decade long. Do you have years of expertise in your field along with a great book that highlights your knowledge (psychology, social justice, management, spirituality, new age, health & wellness, parenting)? Then let me take a look and see if it's ready to get out there in the hands of your readers.

The working experience with Jenna was great. The services she rendered were more than worth the cost. She communicated very well with me as a first-time author, in explaining some of the in and outs of authoring and publishing a book, and walking me through the process as it involved her part of it. She also did an excellent job of trying to get a feel for where I was coming from as an auth...

I am very grateful for the chance to work with Jenna on a developmental edit and copy-edit for my upcoming book. She went above and beyond and provided way more value than I had anticipated. It is obvious that she truly cares about her work and providing maximum value to her customers. I can't recommend her enough. 10/10

Jenna's editing and insights and contributions were fantastic. She saw all that I didn't. I feel/believe I now have a work that exceeded my expectations and I know my readers will also benefit from contributions. I couldn't have chosen a better editor.

Will definitely work with her again!
