Overview

I have 7 years of experience proofreading for a newspaper, written and published two e-books, and am now also editing for independent authors. I specialize in romance, erotic romance and other women's fiction, but can proofread in any genre.

Client Testimonial:
"Jacque was absolutely wonderful. As a new author with a messy draft, editing looked like a mountain I had no idea how to climb. She took a good hard look at that mountain, gave me the right tools to climb it and now I have a book I'm proud to publish. She has the added benefit of...

Service Description

Beta Reading:

I will provide an in depth review of your manuscript, pointing out its strengths and its weak points, along with suggestions for improvement.

Proofreading:

I will look for punctuation, spelling and grammatical errors, font or spacing inconsistencies, as well as major timeline or character inconsistencies and plot holes.

Copy editing:

This is more of an in depth review of your manuscript, making additions, deletions, and other revisions to ensure consistency and readability. I will look for all the issues I do for a proofread, plus errors in sentence structure, word usage, pacing issues, as well as 'head-hopping' and other point-of-view inconsistencies.

GENRES: My expertise is in ROMANCE (all kinds from historical to paranormal), EROTIC ROMANCE AND EROTICA. I can offer more in depth, developmental style editing within those genres. However, I can provide proofreading and copy editing services in a wide variety of genres, so if your work does not fall into one of these categories, drop me a line anyway and tell me a little bit about your project. I'll let you know if I can be of help to you.

PROCESS: I prefer to accept work in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) format, so I can use the program's Track Changes function to do the editing. If your manuscript is in another format, we can discuss options.
