Professional Book Editing

At last, you’ve finished your manuscript. Now you need professional book editing to iron out the kinks and bring it up to publication standards. Whether you’re self-publishing or looking for an agent, your reputation rides on your words. Can you afford to hire a professional book editor? Can you afford not to?

I’m Jessi Rita Hoffman, a former award-winning magazine editor and publishing house editor in chief, and I’ve been helping authors develop and refine their manuscripts for over fourteen years. Donald Trump has been one of my clients and acclaimed novelist Michael Hurley.

I help at every stage of the process with whatever is needed, from brainstorming and structuring, to critiquing and editing, to creation of the query letter and marketing material.

I provide the full range of professional book-editing services … developmental editing, substantive editing, copy editing, ghostwriting, proofreading, author coaching—whatever your book needs to succeed. If you’re willing to invest in your manuscript and make it the best it can be, I’m here to help you do it.
