Romance Editor

Let me challenge your manuscript before your reader does. Hi =)! I’m Jacqueline Pinchuk, and I’m a romance specialist. I offer all three edits: developmental, line/copy, and proofreading. With 20 years of experience, I’m meticulous, thorough, and fast. I offer a complementary zoom to meet me and see if we’re a good fit. Developmental Edits • I look at character motivation, development, and relationships. I analyze pacing, plot holes, and story arcs. I identify where to trim non-essential threads and increase sensory detail, including how to maximize chapter openings and endings. I will offer a quick overview of what revisions to expect in the line/copy edit. • I provide an in-depth look into your manuscript leaving detailed, in-text comments, first impressions, questions, and suggested revisions, as well as a short report reviewing your work as a whole. • I offer a collaborative zoom to review any of my comments/questions as well as brainstorm solutions to potential inconsistencies or concerns. Line/Copy Edits • I suggest revisions directly on the page via google docs. • I look at grammar, syntax, diction, punctuation, active/passive voice, adverbs, filter words, spelling, etc. Proofreading • I review the manuscript with meticulous eyes to catch any final errors before publication. Pricing • I charge a combined price of $0.06 per word for all three edits. • Each edit is broken into a milestone, so you can implement revisions before I begin the next phase. • I also offer a developmental analysis of outlines and chapter summaries with detailed comments on the page, a short report, and a collaborative zoom: $200 for novellas and $400 for full-length. This includes revisions until it's complete. I look forward to working with you! HOLIDAY AVAILABILITY: I’ll take one week off for Thanksgiving and two weeks off for Christmas and New Year’s. Get your manuscripts in now :)!

"Jacqueline was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was easy to communicate with, adhered to timelines and the most important part delivered a high quality end product. Much better than I had hoped for. Already discussing additional work with her. Highly recommend."

"Jacque is a fantastic editor! She combed through my entire manuscript, left me a plethora of comments, and asked exactly the right questions to identify areas of my plot that need work. She has an eagle eye for uncovering weaknesses in a manuscript. Jacque's background as a licensed therapist also gives her a unique perspective on character development and motivation, and she's just a delight to work with. Collaborating with Jacque left me with a wealth of great feedback and a feeling of empowerment to take on my next revision. I can't brag about her enough!"

"I hired Jacqueline P. to help edit a book I’ve been dreaming about for a while. She was incredibly intuitive and heard what I meant to say as opposed to what I’d written. She pulled out the best pieces and asked thoughtful questions which allowed me to make my book even better. Jackie will make you feel like you’re important and seen and she makes that look effortless. The fact that she does that AND made my project better was a double win. I’d highly recommend Jacqueline to anyone looking for professional editing services. "

"I hired Jacqueline to give me editorial feedback on two of my manuscripts. First, she edited my memoir and left detailed questions, suggestions, and pieces I missed. Her keen eye was invaluable along with her encouraging comments. I needed someone who would give me a balance on both sides to feel encouraged enough to do the work to re-edit. I was so impressed with her thorough comments that I sent her my contemporary romance novel. Jacque was able to do developmental edits and show me where I missed the mark on my character development. She left explicit comments about how to bulk up one of my main characters. As well, she asked questions about the deaf culture aspects that I forgot other people didn't know and I needed to expand on. I would HIGHLY recommend Jacque!!"
