I have been privileged to work directly with the following authors or their representatives who have been kind enough to provide a word about my work.
"My favorite part of the editorial collaboration is the seamless way in which a talented, gifted editor is able to reach into my mind and anticipate the pitch-perfect way I would love for my thoughts and words to be arranged on the page. Jean’s deft hand and light touch are so intuitive that my books are a result of her careful crafting and dedication but also by her uncanny ability to weave changes that read invisible given she knows my voice so well. It is clear by her well-founded suggestions and comments that she cares as much about my manuscript realizing the best version of itself as I do. I trust her implicitly with my work and am always looking forward to our next project. With Jean, my books become our books and I simply wouldn’t have it any other way but that team effort." — Rachel McMillan, author of Dream, Plan, and Go; Dream, Plan, and Go Adventure Journal; and A Very Merry Holiday Movie Guide.
"Editor Jean Bloom knows how to strengthen an author’s voice without trying to hijack it. I can’t thank her enough for her help with my novel, Dead End. I highly recommend her!" – Nancy Mehl, USA Today bestselling author, Carol Award winner, and Christy Award nominee
"On the day I started looking for editors for my novel, I opened ACFW's daily email to find a blog post by Jean Bloom—an editor. That seemed like more than a coincidence, so I checked out her website. Right away I saw the long list of authors—many in my same genre—she had worked with. Once I emailed her and had her do a sample edit, I knew I'd found my editor. Working with Jean was wonderful. She worked quickly, conveyed her thoughts and suggestions clearly, and greatly improved my manuscript on the macro and micro levels. I cannot recommend her services enough, and will be using her again for my next novel." - Christy Distler, author of A Cord of Three Strands and The Heart Knows the Way Home; editor
"Jean Bloom edits with a graceful touch and a sharp eye. Her help with my Amish mystery series has been invaluable, and I'm always pleased with a chance to get to work with her." – Vannetta Chapman, author of Murder Simply Brewed
"Jean's editing service was exceptional. She helped me to produce a more refined and understandable book. Her editing skill, speed, and understanding of my writing made working with Jean a pleasure." - Jason Wiedel, author of Persecution Complex
