Finding errors in your own writing is tough.

Even book editors benefit from hiring an editor before they publish their writing. After looking at the same words on the page for weeks or months, we all become blind to our own mistakes, big or small.

Whether it’s a blog article, social media post, or your first novel, hiring an editor is an important step forward (and could be the difference between getting published or not).

What clients are saying
“About a year ago, I was recommended to Jacquelyn Austin and in the intervening months we have worked together on several projects, large and small. My imprint publishes about half a dozen books a year, so keeping to deadlines is important.

Jacquelyn has always honored her commitment to deliver and has been very thorough and patient with historical and obtuse language. She is highly proficient and delivers excellent and timely results at a cost basis which we find amenable. I recommend Jacquelyn highly and we intend to utilize her on all book editing projects going forward.”

- Eric Wiberg
“I am a new author who took the leap last year and wrote a book. With Jacquelyn’s help, that book became more than I ever thought possible. She was thorough and timely, had great suggestions, but most importantly, she encouraged me and gave me the confidence to continue when things got tough. Her feedback was invaluable and she turned my initial draft into a polished and complete product. I'm so grateful for her editing services, and cannot recommend her enough!”

-Tara Hodgson
“I had the pleasure of having Jacquelyn edit my manuscript. As writers, we are incredibly self-conscious when it comes to critiquing our work. Jacquelyn reviewed my manuscript and gave positive feedback and a gentle critique. My goal was to self-publish on Amazon, but was a little intimidated. Jacquelyn was very thorough and encouraging. After her edit I was satisfied that I had a product I could proudly submit. We will be working together on other projects. I enthusiastically recommend her.”

-Dora McCaffrey
“Jacquelyn was wonderful to work with on my novel, and she guided me through the editing process with reliable communication. Her edits were thorough and comprehensive, with clear explanations behind them.”

-Willa Holmes

Who is your photographer?

My name is Susanne Delgado, and photography is my passion.  Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, I feel blessed to have the stunning cityscapes, river valley trails, and Rocky Mountain vistas that we do for photo backdrops.  Do you have a picture in mind of the perfect family portrait?  If you can dream it, I can photograph it!
