Janice Pernell is at the top of the food chain when it comes to developmental, content and line editing. Being a National Best Selling Author and a developmental editor myself, I don’t trust just anyone to edit my work. Janice has edited works for me that landed me agents and book deals with mainstream and independent publishing houses. She also has edited works for my publishing consultant clients that have landed them deals with companies such as Harlequin, Simon & Schuster, Brown Girls Publishing and many others. She genuinely cares about the author’s work, and her attention to details, pacing, flow, character development, continuity, and believability is dynamic.
When it was time for me to have my latest novel Broken Dolls edited, Janice came highly recommended—and now I understand why! I can’t tell you how pleased I was with Janice’s work. Her attention to detail is remarkable, and the questions & comments that she posed helped to make my novel more compelling. She also knows how to suggest changes that take the author's voice into consideration. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any author who is serious about making their novel the best it can possibly be! May 23, 2014, Susan was Janice's client
Janice Pernell provided an exceptionally thorough developmental and content edit for my first novel, Twist'd Dreams, which needed a serious rewrite. Her edit taught me about point of view, third person versus first person writing, use of other people's published materials and so much more. All of this was done professionally and with an eye toward improving my craft. I used her feedback when working on my second novel, What You Can Get Away With, and she provided first-rate content and line editing. Janice is a consummate professional and I would trust her with any future work.
Oh Ms. Janice Pernell is the quintessential professional. This woman is timely, sharp as a tack and has the eyes of a hawk. Her developmental editing mastery just takes my breath away. Ms. Pernell knows her stuff. I've never experienced an editor like her before. 99% of the time she is spot on with her assessment of your novel and always knows how to strengthen your work. I highly recommend Janice Pernell. The woman is a superstar of the editing industry. May 21, 2014, Valarie was Janice’s client
Janice is the best! Her editing skills are impeccable. I highly recommend her. Since 2011, Dennis has been entrusting Janice to edit books that he publishes.
Janice edited my second book, The Better Than Best Friend Guide: Becoming The Friend You Need Her To Be. My book was awarded the distinction of Finalist in the category of Women’s Issues from the National Indie Excellence Book Awards (NIEA). This award is presented to books based on overall excellence and writing. I attribute the success of this book and my previous book to Janice’s editing skills. Do NOT use Janice if you don’t want to be challenged to think outside of the box and step up your writing skills. She definitely helps you step your writing game up. I will use Janice in the future for my third book. I would advise anyone who is serious about publishing a professional book and branding their name in the writing industry to consider Janice. She is well worth it. June 4, 2014, Marty was Janice's client.
Janice is an editor who truly cares about an author's work. She was reading my book Airing Grandma's Laundry strictly for pleasure when she noticed mistakes. She made a list of over 40 errors that she caught. Janice didn't even know me, but she looked out for my best interest by contacting me through my website and graciously sharing that my writing was too good to be compromised by so many avoidable mistakes. After reviewing her list, I knew that all of these things should have been detected by others who edited & proofed my book before it was published. Now I am republishing my book (error-free) thanks to Janice's keen eye and concern for an author she did not even know. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of line, content, or developmental editing services. May 16, 2012, NATASHA was Janice's client
