Welcome! I'm book editor Jean Kavich Bloom. I've been part of the publishing industry for thirty-six years, including freelancing full-time the last dozen years. I work collaboratively with Christian publishing professionals and authors to help make the written word accessible and editorially excellent.* 


At the same time, I help ensure that the authors' vision, story or message, passion, and insight shine, whether in fiction or nonfiction. Unique for some freelance editors, I offer both line editing and copyediting at the same time, a "combined edit" that can save time and in some cases money for my client.    

    The tabs across the top of this Home page will tell you more about:

  • my background
  • my experience and accomplishments in the publishing and editing fields
  • projects I've edited, both fiction and nonfiction
  • my clients
  • the types of editing and writing I do
  • what some authors and publishing professionals say about my work 
  • the services, processes, and rates I offer
  • how to contact me

*Because of my workload with publishers, at times I'm unavailable to work with authors not publishing their books traditionally. 

Thanks for stopping by!

To get the right word in the right place is a rare achievement. To condense the diffused light of a page of thought into the luminous flash of a single sentence, is worthy to rank as a prize composition just by itself . . . Anybody can have ideas—the difficulty is to express them without squandering a quire of paper on an idea that ought to be reduced to one glittering paragraph. ―Mark Twain
