"I worked with Jasmine on my contemporary fantasy novel “Soulbinder” back in 2014. The second book in a planned series of three, Jasmine came into the project only after my first book had been published. If I’d had any concerns about the possible difficulty of a new editor coming into my world and grasping my lore, Jay quickly put my mind at ease. She dove into the world and experienced the characters and I always felt like her insight helped me to keep true to the themes, characterizations, and plot that I tended to muddy up. She was a cheerleader when she needed to be, but also someone who tried to keep me on track by pointing out the dusty nooks of neglected prose. She was professional and thorough and was also invested in my project. We creative types need someone with her abilities to work with us - someone who can not only assassinate the excessive commas but who can also fall in love with our book boyfriends and make them shine. If you need someone to help you work through the swampy mire of your draft - or even just to touch things up on the top end - I highly recommend Jasmine; your novel will thank you."
Writing is an agonizing, joyful, humbling, and rewarding process. As writers we find ourselves constantly
throwing ourselves against the icy shoals of writers block, story consistency, and entertaining narrative
only to later find out that in our fury to put word on page that we have missed the mark in our overall
quest—to write a book that people want to read.
When I first started my authors journey I discovered quite quickly that although I may be able to write a
story, I lacked the skillset to evolve that story into a book.
That’s where Jasmine entered the process.
She managed to take what I had written (in some cases the chaotic mess of plots and dialogues) and
shape it into not only something that made sense but into something that I could be proud of as a
We never glorify the editors but without them, most of our stories would be unreadable and I am
grateful for all the excellent work she has done on my behalf. And because of her diligence and attention
to detail, she has allowed me to become the writer I am now.
Jasmine will probably also have to edit this recommendation for grammar but that’s what I hired her for :)
