Writing and editing life is isolating for so many of us.

Sometimes we don’t have anyone in our physical life that cares to help in the way that we need. Or maybe what they offer simply isn’t enough. You have this creation you’ve been pouring your heart and soul (and many times even tears) into. Then it falls sort of flat without someone to share it with, especially someone who really gets you and wants to see you succeed as badly as you do.

That is exactly the kind of support I hope to inspire here at Polish & Pitch. My passion is to encourage writers at all stages of the writing process and inspire them to always strive toward their goals.

Perhaps the single best thing I have done for my writing career is to work along side with Jaime Dill. Her insight into your writing vision is astonishing, her work ethic and response time is impeccable. She is kind yet firm with her recommendations and has transformed my writing by transforming me. Seriously, she is one of the greatest things that has happened to my writing career.

Every writer needs an editor, but Jaime offers more than that. When I started my debut novel, ‘Carnival of Heaven,’ I’ll admit I was lost. As a result, most editors wouldn’t have given me the time of day, but Jaime did. She acted as a teacher, mentor, and friend through one of the most rewarding and difficult processes I’ve ever been through. And that’s saying something, coming from someone who wrote a book about their struggle with cancer!

I’d also like to point out, that I’m not the kind of person who typically does these sorts of things. However, the only reason I’m actually going toward my dream, is thanks to her encouragement and advice. I’ve gotten two full manuscript requests (so far) with her help, compared to zero on the first iteration of my story.

With all that said, it’s obvious I could probably gush about her services until my fingers fell off. But be that as it may, do yourself a favor. If you’re looking for an editor, give Jaime a shot. She won’t steer you wrong, and you won’t regret it. I know I don’t.
