About Stacy Jerger
It all started with a romance novel. I read my first in 7th grade and never looked back. Fast-forward many years later, I joined writing communities and met incredible writers who struggled through drafts and didn’t have an expert on their side. I noticed the changing paradigm in the publishing industry, and that authors were being left behind. The world became do-or-die busier, widening in opportunity (indie) but shrinking in support.
From the moment I got certified in editing from UC Berkeley, my love of books, particularly romance, kept calling me back like a past lover’s haunting whisper—oooooh. I knew I was going to focus my efforts on novel development. And throughout my experience, I've learned...with the right editor, you can fix any story.
Developmental editing is a specialized editorial service that gives authors support to publish the best story they can.
(And for me to do what I love.) And of course, to help authors succeed in this difficult but creative career choice. And to show every jerk who ever said, “That’s nice, but what’s your real job?” that this was your real job: professional author, nice to meet you.
It all comes down to this:
We’re here to work and have fun doing it. We’re here to stay inspired and roll up our sleeves for this journey between your sh*tty first draft and showing it to the first agent/publisher/reader who walks by. We’re here to drink coffee in the morning and wine at night. We’re here to make readers happy and our hearts full.
We’re here for the love of romance.
