"It’s not easy to find an editor who checks all the boxes: professional, authoritative, conscientious, trustworthy, and dependable, as well as the other myriad of qualities that make a first-class editor. But Jen McIntyre is all that and more. When I send her my manuscripts, I know they are in capable hands, and that she’ll return them to me polished and publish-ready."

"Jennifer edited my first book, Deadly Storm, and she was an absolute joy to work with throughout the process. She not only provided thoughtful comments, but tirelessly offered explanations and advice on even the smallest details. A skilled editor with a keen eye, she is meticulous at finding errors, but delivers all feedback with tact and sensitivity while respecting the author’s vision. Her wonderful sense of humour immediately put this nervous writer at ease, all while providing me a safe and supportive environment in which to learn. I was so happy with the experience that I have enlisted her help with my second novel. I highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking for an editor, as I can’t imagine publishing anything without her guidance."

What do I say about the most amazing editor, not to mention person, I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. Jennifer has the eyes of an eagle, catching both the biggest blunders and the tiniest of errors. She is meticulous and exceptionally thorough, unearthing mistakes even my editing software missed.
Her task was a daunting one: to edit the third book in a series she knew nothing about. Thankfully, she accepted the challenge and dug in, not only doing a superb job of editing Book 3 but also taking the time to read through Books 1 and 2 to get a feel for my characters and writing style.
I would guess there are very few editors so committed to their authors and their words.
I will be forever in her debt, and plan on singing her praises to anyone who will listen (and even to those who won’t!). Bravo, Jen McIntyre! You have found yourself a lifelong client!
—Quinn Noll, author of
