Jevon Bolden

Jevon Bolden - Editor

Orlando, FL, United States

Best-selling nonfiction editor, ghostwriter, and publishing consultant specializing in inspirational, self-help, how-to, integrative health

Overview

Jevon Bolden is a true lover of the arts—music, literature, fine art and cuisine, and theater—and you may find her dabbling in any one of them herself. She knows what it means to be a creative as well as what it means to provide discipline and strategy for that same creativity.

Holding a firm belief that one must find what they truly love to do and pursue it, Jevon made an about-face in college from premed biology to English literature and sociology and from working in her early career as a banker to becoming a book editor. Notwithstanding the promising future she could have had in math and science, she considers those choices some of the best decisions she's ever made—and she has the energy and enthusiasm to prove it.

So now who you have is a writing and editorial partner who not only gets stats, data, and research but also one who can help you develop the artful prose it takes to communicate such findings to a wide and interested audience. But more than that, you connect with a publishing partner who gets you—your burning desire to release what's in your heart, the method to your madness, and what you need to keep going when that nagging voice calls your mission into question.

WHAT AUTHORS ARE SAYING...

"Jevon and I have worked together for several years now. One of the most amazing things about her is her ability to connect with the author and not just the manuscript. I’m convinced this is how she brings out the best in every writer she works with. I find her to be professional, efficient and capable. And since writing is not my “day job,” I needed someone like Jevon, who is attentive and respectful of both my time as well as my other obligations." —Kara Davis, MD, Doctor of Internal Medicine, and author of Spiritual Secrets to Weight Loss, Spiritual Secrets to a Healthy Heart, and Timeless

"Jevon is an excellent editor. She is both enjoyable and encouraging to work with and very professional as well. Her edits and creative additions are something I highly value for my manuscripts. I've worked with her for more than five years. She is one of the best editors I've had in my twenty plus career as a writer." —Cherie Calbom, author, TV chef, and celebrity nutritionist, known as The Juice Lady

"Jevon Bolden is talented, thorough, and inspiring. I was thrilled to have Jevon as the developmental editor for Career Moves. She did a fabulous job! Jevon is proactive and insightful. She manages deadlines and objectives with such grace. Thank you, Jevon, for investing yourself so beautifully in the success of others!" —Dondi Scumaci, President, Dondi Scumaci, Inc., author of Career Moves, Ready, Set... Grow, and Designed for Success

"Jevon is a fabulous editor with the experience and 'know-how' to format a book from front to back. She worked on my upcoming health book Fat Free For Life: 13 Principles for Guaranteed Weight Loss and Ultimate Health with Charisma House Publishing. She works well with authors and pulls the very best out of the project to make their work shine. Highly recommend her to anyone needing to find a person with an amazing editorial eye." —Braxton Cosby, nephew to Bill Cosby, personal trainer, and health coach

"Jevon was the editor for my book Viral Jesus. She was easy to work with and very quick to respond to my questions. Her answers were always helpful. Many writers fear that an editor will change their message or take over their voice. This was clearly not the case with Jevon. She just made my book better. I highly recommend her." —Ross Rohde, Simple Church Planting Coach, and author of Viral Jesus
