Jenny Pierson - Editor

New York City

Editor. Hero of the hyphen. Certifiable grammar nut. Making your manuscript even more amazing is my calling!

Overview

With four years of experience at a trade publisher working in nearly every department gleaning information about what happens to books that I edit, I've got you covered from soup to nuts (or ebook to blurbs). I love authors who are motivated, especially ones who have a brand or are otherwise invested in the material beyond the page on a daily basis--let's make books that will change people's hearts and minds, books that are useful, entertaining, and unique. I'll help you whip your book into its best shape and make it available to readers as quickly and efficiently as possible. I am an extremely thorough proofreader/editor, and I care very much about projects I take on. I am no-nonsense about grammar and punctuation, but I love a good pun.
