Professional and Compassionate Editing
I am very pleased with the work that Jeannette has done on my manuscript and would like to thank her for the fantastic job! English is not my first language and I could not have achieved this result without her expertise and guidance. This book is dear to me and I highly appreciate Jeannette's constant involvement and the passion she was providing to me during book editing process. She could keep my style of writing and turn it into a professional one by polishing the book without doing much changes in the context. Her constructive feedback helped me to make adjustment in the book and make it sound even richer. She is professional, knowledgeable, tactful and easy to work with. I would recommend Jeannette to anyone who is looking for professional and compassionate editing.

Thorough, Fast and Smart

A True Partner from Beginning to End
I hired Jeannette to create a keynote speech for me. What I received instead was a true partner from beginning to end! Jeannette knew exactly what would work with my audience and was very open to my input. She took the time to really get to know me, my business, and the women that I work with before crafting an extremely thorough and creative proposal for my keynote.
When writing my keynote, Jeannette focused on providing my audience with incredible value, while also creating an emotional connection that would encourage them to continue a relationship with me after the event.
It was very obvious that she also put a lot of time into researching the topic. She not only prepared and slightly revised my keynote in an extremely timely manner, but also provided me with presentation tips to implement while I practiced so that I could present very naturally.
It was a pleasure to work with Jeannette and I look forward to working with her again in the future. Thank you, Jeannette, for taking all the stress out of my first major keynote!!

Editing That Makes Sense
Jeannette edited my first novel, Visions 2012: The Nostradamus Design. As a first-time author and self-publisher, I had no idea what to expect with the process, especially with my initial search for an editor. But I was thorough in my search, asking for sample edits of my work, and searching for reviews and references. Jeannette's style for the sample was by far the most attractive to me. She suggested the changes that made the most sense, without trying to re-write what I had written or change my style of writing. She pointed out areas that needed work, and gave solid reasons. She carried that style through the whole manuscript once I chose her as my editor. I think the best part about working with Jeannette was that she does a complete second round of edits once you have gone through the first round. Naturally, with all the changes you either accept, ignore or modify there will be a need for a second review. Visions 2012 is now available on Amazon as well as Barnes and Noble online, and is getting fantastic early reviews. I highly recommend Jeannette to help you with your project as well.
A Great Asset
I had the pleasure of working with Jeannette de Beauvoir on our organization's annual 52 page travel magazine. She was a great asset during the entire project. She brought in fresh ideas for the articles during the development meetings, met all the deadlines, and graciously worked with the editing comments of a nine-member board. The project had been divided between three writers but late into the project one of the writers was removed and Jeannette wrote the three missing articles and did so within the limited amount of time left. She has the unique ability to make suggestions while staying completely within the direction and tone of the project for a truly collaborative relationship.

Listens to Clients
When I was writing Warnings: The True Story of How Science Tamed the Weather I wanted a story that would be easy and fun to read even though it dealt with history and science. I chose Jeannette because she convinced me she would listen to me and help me attain my goal. She even came to Kansas to go storm chasing in order go get inside the story. I'm very pleased with the final result and so are the critics.

While searching for a professional editor I was very fortunate to find Jeannette! I was very impressed with her knowledge and ability to not only edit my manuscript but also make it better. Jeannette went above and beyond what I expected. She provided helpful tips and education throughout the process that were very much appreciated. Not only do I recommend Jeannette de Beauvoir but I will continue to use her services as well.
