“Intuitive, insightful, indispensable. Jen distilled the essence of my manuscript into a query I’m excited to share. I wholeheartedly recommend her editing services.” -Sarah White, Australia
"Jenny Ferguson is the editor I believe every writer looks for: one who understands what you are trying to achieve in your work and helps you get there without imposing her preferences. She has the eyes of an eagle with any text, catching everything your own eyes are too tired to see. I had reached a dead-end with my manuscript when I approached her and she managed to carve a good story out of what I had on the page. She has helped me with my collection of short stories ECHOES FROM THE OTHER LAND (TSAR Publications, 2010) and my novel MANY CUNNING PASSAGES. I admire her skill and talent but also her efficiency, dedication, honesty, compassion, and generosity." -Ava Homa, Canada/USA
"I think I struggle more with writing the query letter than I do with writing the novel so Jenny’s editing service was a dream come true. Jenny’s feedback was constructive and insightful.She tackled elements of my query with detail and pinpointed areas that needed improvement and where I could make my query shine.She was spot on with all her suggestions, and super fast in responding and providing notes. She reviewed multiple revisions and I can honestly say my query improved tremendously and is now more concise and incorporates voice. I highly recommend Jenny to anyone hoping to polish their query. I will definitely be using her services again!" -Daka Hermon, USA
"Before Jenny, I had worked with quite a few other editors. So my previous experience helped me to appreciate her impeccable work even more. She doesn't only correct the grammatical errors, she helps to enhance my short stories on a craft level. The revised stories I receive from her are marked by several suggestions from different aspects: obvious corrections, removing redundancies, suggesting better terms for the existing ones, and making the sentences more economical and tight, among other things. I don't consider my work 'finished' unless I have her approval." -Mehdi M. Kashani, Canada
