Jennifer Dinsmore Editorial


You’ve decided you’re ready for the next step in your career: self-publishing. It’s both exciting and nerve-wracking, but you’re ready to take control and see your creative vision realized. You’re ready to put in the work that goes into preparing a book for market, and are looking to cultivate a relationship with an editor who will be your guide and champion. You need someone who can provide creative feedback and superior editing in a way that will leave you feeling supported, confident, and understood.

I’m here to offer developmental guidance, copy editing, and proofreading to independent authors at the outset of their careers. I’m passionate about helping you create a work you are proud of, and bring to life worlds that readers can get lost in—and perhaps find themselves in the process. Praised for being able to bring an author’s vision to life—and revered for my eagle eye—my goal is to help you shine a light on the under-represented facets of our shared experiences and the liminal spaces in which they exist.
