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. 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

Thanks for stopping by!

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

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
