"Choosing an editor or proofreader can be a daunting task. To find someone who is willing to enter into the 'little world' you have created takes an element of trust and compassion. To this end, I consider myself truly blessed to have found Jennifer. She nurtured me through the editing process painlessly, showing great empathy and common sense. We can all get a little too close to our projects whatever their nature. Jennifer has the experience, expertise and insight to objectively ask pertinent questions. She understands the writing process and can distil the potential of your story while keeping the true character of your work. Jennifer turned what could have been a traumatic experience into a pleasant one, for which I am truly grateful. Her questions and words of encouragement meant a great deal. I look forward to working with her in the future."
"I implemented all your suggested changes to the best of my ability and wanted to reach back out and say thank you. Your attention to detail is flawless and everything looks so polished. This goes a long way in confidence for me to present a manuscript to agents. I have also sent an email to Edward regarding what a beautiful quality edit was done on this manuscript."
"I'm so thankful I found Jennifer. From the first appointment to discuss what I needed, to where we are right now, it's been 100% professional. I can't express how working with Jennifer doesn't feel like work at all.
Jennifer kept to her timescales and committed to all we agreed. Her documents and following emails were clear and professional but personal. I really felt like she had my back from the off.
Not only did Jennifer provide a fantastic line and copyedit, but she also offered developmental offerings as she went along and I can't express how useful that was for me.
Jennifer's work on my manuscript has shaped it, but not only that -- her wise, thoughtful and regular feedback in between pass-backs was such a boost to my confidence and this was something I needed after an awful experience.
I would thoroughly recommend Jennifer and would use her fantastic work again in a heartbeat. What a gem!"
"I appreciated the following qualities I found in your work (in no particular order): efficiency, thoroughness, approachability, skill, knowledgeability, competency and empathy."
"Last year I wrote my first novel and Jennifer was such a massive help. It can be quite a daunting move for newbie writers to find the best editor. But I needn't have worried as Jennifer was such a pro. She made it so easy to start a process that I had no clue about. Not only was she nice, pleasant and professional throughout but Jennifer was very precise on the actual editing. I had a good story, Jennifer made it a good novel. She picked up on what must have been close to a thousand mistakes and helped to improve my writing no end. I would definitely recommend Jennifer to any other aspiring authors and after the success of my first book I'm sure I'll be calling on Jennifer's help for my next project."
"Jennifer was very quick at getting back to me with a quote. Her prices are very reasonable. She kept me up to date with her progress and she returned my manuscript within the time stated. Her work was very thorough and precise. She looked at every single detail! Would highly recommend! Thank you!"
"Jenny Davies played a vital role in helping my book reach its full potential. As my copy editor, she caught hundreds of mistakes I had missed even after I edited my novel countless times. Her detailed notes and suggestions improved the readability of my writing. She not only corrected my errors but explained why they were mistakes, so I don't make them again in the future.
She completed the edits for my book quickly without sacrificing accuracy. I sent her a copy of my seventy-thousand-word manuscript on a Thursday without a deadline. She returned the copy-edited version to me four days later. I assumed it would take her at least a month since she was honest about working on several other manuscripts, but she still finished rapidly. I'm confident that Jenny can deliver anyone a solid copy-edit even with the protracted deadline, depending on her schedule, of course. If you are looking for a skilled editor and proof-reader, then I'm confident that Jenny Davies can deliver for you. She was a terrific resource and a pleasure to work with. I can't wait to send her my next book to edit."
"From my experience with Jennifer, she is as precise as she is ruthless with her editing, all culminating in a superior manuscript than the one originally sent her way. She has a masterful grasp on grammar and will not fail to catch repeat errors or redundant paragraphs. Her services are fast and efficient, leaving nothing but a satisfying gut punch as you realize what mistakes you made during your most recent draft. If you are looking for an editor who will get the job done well and in a timely manner, I would highly recommend Jennifer as the editor for you."
"I recently engaged Jenny Davies as an editor to review and enhance my novel, 'Under the Aurora', and she was a truly fantastic partner. She was easy to interact with and extremely responsive. She conducted a complete analysis and assessment of my work quickly and thoroughly, leaving no stone unturned. She diligently caught and addressed every possible improvement opportunity no matter how minor or nuanced, ensuring a quality and highly-professional final deliverable and output.
She tracked all her suggested changes in the document and provided commentary to elaborate and explain the reasoning behind each editing suggestion. In addition to exceptional copyediting, she also understood what I was trying to accomplish with the story and made insightful strategic suggestions on how to reword plot points and descriptions for improved readability and clarity. She caught continuity errors and provided meaningful and valuable feedback regarding common errors I tended to make in my writing. In addition to receiving a greatly improved manuscript, I learned from her as well, which was an added and unexpected bonus.
The experience of working with and interacting with Jenny Davies was both memorable and enjoyable and the impact she's had on the quality of my novel has been immeasurable - clearly exceeding my expectations. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for the utmost professional - quality strategic and detailed tactical editing review available. I give her five stars!"
