"Jackie has edited four books for me so far, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without her. She catches things 20 beta readers didn't, and she continually teaches me new ways to improve my grammar and writing. She even noticed an inconsistency in the type of glasses a character was wearing in book three — even though I only mentioned it once in book one! I don't know how she does it. Best of all, she is adept at achieving that rare balance between what is technically correct and what your characters would naturally say. You won't find this combination of expertise, commitment, and attention to detail in other editors!"
"I had a wonderful experience with JJ Proofing with my latest book. Jackie was timely and incredibly thorough with her proofread. I was amazed that she took the time to actually write detailed explanations about many of the changes she made, helping me understand them. Jackie's services were affordable and finished within the time frame she had quoted me. I would definitely recommend JJ Proofing to any author looking for a comprehensive, professional proofread that is reasonably priced. I will be turning to Jackie for all my future proofreading needs!"
"Jackie set me at ease with her friendly, professional style. She was thorough and accurate, finding those pesky mistakes I always miss. I don't know how she does it so quickly, and her price was very reasonable. Proofing with Jackie isn't like going to the dentist; it's like getting help from a trusted friend."
"I was amazed with the thorough job Jackie did in proofreading my book. She made some incredible catches. I would roll my eyes and say, 'I can't believe I didn't see that!' Luckily, Jackie did. As a writer I am so involved with the plot, the scenes, and the characters that it's impossible to see the words with 'fresh' eyes. I'm a fan of Jackie's for life. There are three more books in this series and I hope Jackie will proof read each one for me. I can enthusiastically recommend JJProofing.com to writers needing accurate proof reading done in a very timely manner for an affordable price."
"The quality of Jackie's editing and proofreading services have exceeded my expectations every time. She not only caught grammar mistakes, but she also found significant character/plot inconsistencies. Jackie is very easy to work with, flexible, thorough, and has a great work ethic. I plan to use her again for my next science fiction series."
"Jackie has done an amazing job of editing two books for me, 'The Watchers' and 'Hitmail dot com.' Her sharp eye and suggestions helped turn good books into GREAT books, and the work has always been completed within our agreed time frame. Based on my experience with Jackie, another writer I work closely with has now given her a book to edit. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jackie to any author needing their work proofread, and at a price they can afford. All my future works will be going to Jackie for editing."
"In June 2014 a very good friend of mine recommended that I contact a professional proofreader, Jackie Jones, to review the text of my first book. I am pleased to report that I was very impressed with how well she communicated, how pleasantly personable she was throughout the exercise, and how fast and professional she was while completing the final proofreading exercise prior to the book being published.
Jackie required only a few days to complete the document, which I thought did not require a considerable amount of editing. I was very wrong. Jackie's detailed editing of spelling, punctuation, diction, syntax, etc. was dazzling and the three editors who reviewed the text before Jackie were astonished when I showed them how detailed her review was. Moreover, she took the time to research several names and terms I used to describe various places and people to ensure that her input was completely accurate. Her rates I found to be very competitive and well worth the cost."
