“As a first-time author, I was looking for someone who could not only provide great editing but also help me understand and navigate the editing process.  Jeanette provided confident, concise feedback and excellent professional editing; but she also came alongside me with practical encouragement, challenge, and even enthusiasm for my content area. My book was far, far better due to Jeanette’s skills.  I could not have asked for a better editor!”

“Jeanette Windle took my book to a whole new level.  She was able to help me see my book not just from my own perspective, but from that of a future reader. In so doing, she transformed my writing from good to great.  Her depth of insight, knowledge of history, personal experience and biblical literacy make her a one of a kind editor. I am so thankful that people who read my book, Our Good Father, will read it after having been edited by Jeanette.”

 

—Pierre Eade, author Our Good Father: Seeing God through the Eyes of Jesus

“I cannot say enough about Jeanette’s talent as an editor. Sharing my daughter’s battle with cancer in print brought raw emotion back to the surface, but Jeanette caringly and thoroughly explained her changes throughout the editing process. It was important to her that the readers get to know me and my daughter and experience the faithfulness of God through my story, which helps readers feel as if they were there with us living through Natalie’s difficult journey. Jeanette always met deadlines. She was fast and welcomed my questions and comments. Having a great editor was an essential part of bringing my words to life, and I am very happy with this book. I highly recommend enlisting Jeanette’s services. She’s worth the investment!”

—Kathy Yokeley, Vice President of Communications, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), author Not My Plans: When God Allows a Parent’s Worse Fears to Come True

 

“Praise the name of Jesus for what He is doing through the publication of Divine Reversal. Thank you so very much to my editor Jeanette Windle for all your investment in this book. A common reaction on the Amazon reviews I have gotten so far is that readers could not put it down. These comments speak of the fruit of your labor.”

 

—Dr. Susan Joy Simkins, PhD, author Divine Reversal

“As a new writer, I was writing a special book about a traumatic part of my life—a prison term—and needed an editor who ‘got’ it. From the outset, Jeanette Windle understood my vision and goals. Every email I received was clear, and missing very little. Despite USA-Australia time zone difference, all her responses were fast, detailed, self-explanatory, and friendly. As Jeanette shaped my mess, it was like watching a master-potter turn multiple lumps of unjoined clay into a finely finished vessel fit for use in the Lord’s house. I am so pleased with the outcome.”

“I was blessed to have Jeanette Windle the editor of my first book, Insane Success. The manuscript she received was a skeleton with bones out of place and more than a few missing. Seeing the vital messages in it, she came alongside me as much more than my editor. Jeanette became my long-distance tutor, motivator, source of encouragement, and friend.”

 

—Steven Lomelino, author Insane Success: From Losing the American Dream to Finding God’s Abundant Life

 

“Jeanette Windle brings a wealth of life experiences and writing knowledge coupled with patience and encouragement to each project. After years of writing devotional material, I needed guidance to switch to YA fiction. Jeanette has been both a tough coach and a first-rate encourager as she’s helped me take more than one project from idea to publication. For every “this won’t work,” she has a “but I have some ideas on how to fix it.” And page-by-page, a strong story is born.”
