Welcome to the woods

You stand in the woods, the stars twinkling through the canopy above your head.

In front of you, the path forks into three.

Which adventure will you take…

Hi! I’m Jenny Lewis. A reformed Marketing Executive, passionate storyteller and professional editor and proofreader who lives in my own world, loves creating books, crafting with words, and can’t say no to cake. (Except carrot cake. Because, yuck.)

With ten years of professional editing and proofreading experience, I love helping to make your words the best they can be, whether you’re an indie author, publisher or small business.

My favourite topics/genres to work on are heritage/culture, animal charities, small business, property, fantasy, anything paranormal, women’s fiction, romance and mixed genres.

The author of 13 books, I also write fantasy under the name J E Nice and romance as Jennifer Nice.

“I’ve been connected with Jenny on Instagram for a couple of years now and we often talk all things bookish. Having read and enjoyed some of her books, I knew she would do an awesome job proofreading my novel, Feels Like Home. Working with her on the book was all I’d hoped for and more, her eye for detail and consistency is astounding. Her little notes fact checking or liking parts of the text were super encouraging and really helpful. I’ll be sending more novels her way—when they’re written. Thanks Jenny!”

Editing / proofreading / typesetting

Any of these feel familiar?

You’ve written a book and can no longer see the words for the story – you wrote the book, after all, and you’ve already read it a gazillion times.
You’re a small business and your time is better spent doing what you do best, not faffing with words or grammar.
You’re a publisher and in need of another freelance editor or proofreader to add to your bank.

I can edit and proofread your work, not only saving you time but stopping you from screaming at your screen (we’ve all been there).
You’ll have peace of mind that your work is in safe, experienced hands with the added benefit that I’m a fast worker and always do my best no matter what.

I would love to help to make your book, your copy or your authors’ books the best they can be.

"I am so happy I chose Write Into The Woods to copyedit A LONG TIME BURNING.

 
Like many authors, I find it very difficult to hand over my manuscript to the professionals. Write into the Woods took the time to get to know me, to discover the inspiration behind the book, and to understand my writing style. I was offered a trial edit which I found really helpful and by the time I handed the whole book over I knew it was in safe, capable, and more importantly, friendly hands.
 
The subject matter of my mystery thriller, and my voice, were respected and I couldn’t be happier with the result. Receiving your edited work back can sometimes feel like a teacher has attacked it with a red pen, but with Write Into The Woods, it felt like we were working side by side to polish and shape my story until it sparkled, and was ready for publishing.
 
Thank you; we will certainly be working together again."

Professional Copy Editing

Whatever has been written, editing is vital before you hit publish.
Editing checks for flow and rhythm, that everything makes sense, that the right words are being used, as well as checking grammar and doing a preliminary catch of those pesky typos.

Proofreading

Proofreading involves checking for any typos and misplaced or missing punctuation or words, but I’ll also be on the lookout for anything the edits may have missed, e.g. a clumsy sentence or repetition. The proofread is all about the final polish.

Typesetting

Are you publishing on KDP (Amazon)?
I can format your ebook and/or typeset your paperback  and/or hardcover ready for you to upload straight to KDP and hit publish.

“Jenny recently undertook some proofreading and editing on a project I was working on and I couldn't have been happier with the work she did. We discussed beforehand the best way for her to deliver the editing for me and settled on a way that was clear and convenient. 
The editing was thorough and delivered efficiently in a way that it was easy to track and understand the changes. 
I wouldn't hesitate to work with Jenny again and would wholeheartedly recommend her.”
