Have you ever read a novel with an amazing story only to be distracted by errors throughout? I’m here to help with that! Having a second set of eyes view your work is a great way to eliminate errors you may have missed.

I pride myself on keeping your voice intact and assisting you with publishing high-quality stories that resonate with readers while keeping the process transparent and smooth.

I specialize in fantasy, science fiction, romance, and speculative fiction, from short stories to novels; however, I edit all genres.

My client, Jan, had this to say about working with me:

I enjoyed and appreciated Jessica’s professionalism, along with the attention she gave to my manuscripts. She was reliable, present, and consistent. I also loved the joy Jessica brought to the process.
I would recommend J. Berry Editorial’s services to other writers without hesitation because of her professionalism and because of her skill! She listened to me and related to my manuscripts in a way that honored them for what they are. She made the stories clearer, more consistent, and stronger.



I have a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Graduate Certificate in Human Resources Management. I also have a certificate in proofreading, copyediting, and line editing from Edit Republic. My education and experience provide me with skills in writing, research, critical thinking, communication, management, decision-making, and more.

In my free time, I enjoy reading fantasy and science fiction, along with romance and a non-fiction book here and there thrown in for good measure. I like to read a little of everything! Because reading is a passion of mine, I enjoy helping writers perfect their message. Contact me so we can get started polishing your next masterpiece!
