Welcome to my website! A properly edited manuscript is a joy to read. It isn’t full of typos, plot holes, or poorly expressed ideas. It reflects the high values of the author who wrote it. It shines like a polished jewel.
Excellence. It’s what I stand for and what the authors I work with stand for. If you want your book to be the best it can be, something that shines in the marketplace and that you can be deeply proud of, you’ve come to the right door.
I’m Jessi Rita Hoffman, a former publishing house editor in chief, and I’ve been helping authors develop and refine their manuscripts for over fifteen years. My clients have won literary awards, signed with agents, and landed book deals with major publishers.
Whether you’re seeking an agent or plan to self-publish, I offer the full range of professional book-editing services: developmental editing (also called “content editing”), manuscript assessment, author coaching, copy editing, creation of query letters and marketing materials—whatever your manuscript needs to be well-received in the marketplace. If you’re willing to invest in your book to make it reflect your high purpose, I’m here to help you do it.
