Jenna Love-Schrader – Editor

With 15+ years experience in book publishing at Harper Collins, I specialize in fiction, wellness and business/leadership genres.


Greetings! As a professional editor, I'm passionate about crafting compelling narratives that engage readers and communicate complex ideas in a clear and concise manner. With a degree in speech communications and journalism from Lipscomb University, I've had the pleasure of working with top publishers and companies for over 15 years, such as Harper Collins, LifeWay, Ramsey Solutions, Vanderbilt University, Lipscomb University, Illumify Media Global, Flowerpot Press, and more. I work within a diverse range of genres, including Fiction (Christian Fiction, YA Fantasy, Mystery & Suspense, Romance), Self-Development, Inspiration, Business Development, Religion & Spirituality, Cookbooks, Lifestyle, Memoir.

Whether you're writing fiction or nonfiction, my goal is to take your manuscript to the next level, achieve your creative vision, and bring your story to life. Writing can be a daunting process, and I'm here to offer you the expertise, support, and accountability to help you stay on track and achieve your goals. And hey, if you need someone to vent to about the writing process, I'm happy to lend an ear. Spending months (or years) getting the words on the page can be a lonely endeavor, leaving writers feeling uncertain if they have something good because they have stared at their creation too many times without the proper feedback. I’m here to tell you you’re better than you give yourself credit for, and it’s time to share your work with a professional and polish it up! If you felt compelled to write something, then SOMEONE must need to read it one day!

On Reedsy, I offer a wide range of editorial services to help authors achieve their publishing goals. Whether you're writing fiction or nonfiction, I'm your go-to gal for editorial assessments, developmental editing, copy editing, and proofreading services. I'll give you feedback on everything from the overall structure and flow of your manuscript to the development of your characters!

Some books I’m proud to have worked on include Girl, Wash Your Face! (Rachel Hollis), Total Money Makeover and Entreleadership (Dave Ramsey), Debt-Free Degree (Anthony ONeal), Small Changes (Alicia Witt), Edge of Dusk (Colleen Coble), Gentle on My Mind (Kim Campbell), Chasing Failure (Ryan Leak), Everyday Celebrations from Scratch (Maria Provenzano), What if It’s True? (Charles Martin), Your Longing Has a Name (Dominic Done), Work in Progress (Leanne Ford), A Million Miles in a Thousand Years (Donald Miller), Drive (Kelly Earnhardt), The Great Eight (Scott Hamilton), Made for This (Jennie Allen), The Bride Collector and Skin (Ted Dekker).

Trust me, with my editing skills and your writing talent, we'll be unstoppable!

Jenna is amazing. Before I chose her as my editor she took the time to meet with me via zoom. She answered the questions I had, has a great personality and I felt confident she had the skills to take my story and make it better. For myself, it's hard to trust anyone. I had never written a book before and with how personal it was, I felt uneasy handing off a piece of my soul to someone. Wha...

Jenna did a wonderful job editing my fiction manuscript. It is over one-hundred thousand words, and she went through it line by line checking grammar, punctuation, context and sometimes leaving comments and questions to help me understand her suggested changes. She also reorganized some of the dialogue at times to ensure conversations were flowing properly. I am very happy with her attention to...
