My name is Jean Kavich Bloom, and I'm a professional freelance editor and writer. I work primarily in the Christian market. 

Because of my thirty years of publishing experience, I know my clients need what they need, when they need it. They don't want delays, hassle, or poor quality; they want on-time, on-target, thorough, top-notch assistance. And I have a reputation for quick turnarounds, most often beating deadlines, whether working with fiction or nonfiction.

When I edit I help authors . . .
  • Eliminate awkward phrasing; ensure precise word choices; and achieve excellence in English grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
  • Address timeline, point of view (POV), and staging inconsistencies for both fiction and nonfiction featuring story, as well as any issues created when not all the dots connect.  
  • Adhere to standard industry and in-house style guides without losing the voice of the author or organization.

 When I write I . . .
  • Put ideas and information into readable, accessible form for the client's chosen target audience.
  • Write to space and word count requirements, without losing the essence of the message or the voice of the author or organization.

The pages listed on the tabs to the right will tell you more about me; my work, experience, and rates; and what some authors and clients have said about why they like what I do. 

Thanks for stopping by. (Picture me drinking coffee. I probably am!)

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
