I contracted with Jen for a short sample edit to assess her competence and our compatibility. Very quickly I realized that she had the qualities I was looking for: meticulousness, knowledge of copy editing rules and responsiveness . I made the decision to hire her to copy edit my 60,000 word manuscript and am very happy with how it is going! She is so efficient that we already 3/4 of the way done.

I chose Jennifer because of her outstanding reviews and I was NOT disappointed. She is wonderful at what she does. I have read through my manuscript probably 100 times, but Jen caught so many errors. She was also extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it came to CMS formatting. You are brilliant, Jen! Thank you.

Thank you Christine! I really enjoyed working on your project and hope to work with you again.
