- SKILLED EDITOR: Editing and restructuring manuscripts and making ... morepublish-ready. My edits keep the writer's voice while making the writing the very best it can be. - CREATIVE BOOK DESIGNER: Formatting and design of book interiors and book covers for Amazon's CreateSpace, Kindle, Lightning Source and Ingram Spark. ABOUT ME: -I have a B. A. in journalism. I am a full-time freelance editor, book and ebook designer based in Georgia in the USA. I assist my clients, as needed, with the entire "self-publishing" procedure. I require excellence in myself in all of my endeavors, and I often go beyond the specified requirements of the clients that I work with to assure that they are getting the very best that their product can be. I am passionate about the creation of well-edited, well-designed printed books and ebooks. EDITING: From my own reading experiences, I know that readers “cringe” when they encounter errors in spelling, punctuation and sloppy sentence structure. This distracts them from the content and suggests that the author is not professional. When encountering a number of these errors, many readers (myself included) will simply toss the book aside. BOOK DESIGN: I am aware that the "look" and "feel" of a book sells it as much as does the content. A poorly formatted book will discredit the content and may cause the reader to become confused about the author’s intent. Well-designed interior pages of a book will entice the reader to delve into the book and will serve to enhance their reading experience. An appealing book cover invites the reader to “come on in.” I very much enjoy creating book covers for the books that I format and design. THANK YOU for your consideration of me for your project. Should we accept each other as Provider/Client, your goals will be my goals. After we both have a clear understanding of the results that you envision for your project, your satisfaction with my completed version of your product is guaranteed. I aim to please. FEEDBACK from a few of my clients: Underwater, the Memoir “Jean was wonderful to work with on getting my book ready for publication through CreateSpace and Kindle. Her response and turnaround times were amazingly fast. Highly knowledgeable and experienced. I love the look of my book and know I couldn't have come close to the high quality if I had tried to do it myself. In addition, I felt she really cared about my project, a memoir that is close to my heart. I'm so grateful I found Jean to help me in the vast universe of the internet. I'd recommend her to any indie author.”— zephyrella Edit, format and submit Kindle book “This was my first experience as a Kindle author and Jean was very knowledgeable in the process, so she made it a breeze. I found her to be very responsive to my messages, and prompt in delivering the final product. My book hit #1 on the Amazon free Kindle bestseller list and the reviews (all positive so far) are trickling in. I'm so glad I invested in hiring an editor, as I know my product looks professional. Well worth it and I will definitely be hiring her again for my next book.” — neatfreak08 Workbook Format and Layout “After working with Jean Boles on multiple jobs, I can only say positive things about her. On multiple occasions she has gone the extra mile. She has made sure our expectations and hopes have been met on each project. She has a warm, positive approach, she's detail oriented, she is a prompt and clear communicator, and our team has felt that she has had a genuine interest in our book's purpose. This was a huge plus! I highly recommend her and I can't say thanks enough!”— RareCasesLLC Prepress; Layout of Book “It was a pure pleasure to work with Jean on my book project. Jean is a real gem. To find a person like her in the wild ocean of the Internet is rare and lucky and I am sincerely grateful. Jean is unique in her approach. If Jean says that she will do something, there is no doubt that she will do it not only on time and correctly but also beautifully! Jean is very reliable and hard-working person! Her work is excellent and also reasonably priced.”— breathing1 editing romance novel for author “Jean exceeded my expectations! She was always on time with milestones. She was very professional. She always had great suggestions on how to improve my novel. Not only was she fantastic at editing my novel she respected my voice as an author (a new one) and improved the story without changing my style. She also has expertise in the various venues of the self-publishing world, which is a huge asset to me. I am thrilled to not only have found an editor but someone who can help me take this novel the rest of the way to publication. Thanks for a job well done! -Deanna ” Book Proofing, Editing, Formatting and CreateSpace Publishing “Jean is a DREAM to work with. She takes care of us and makes sure everything is perfect. Thank you Jean for another great experience!” — lhg01 less
