Stories are my deepest passion. Since I was young, I’ve broken stories apart, stitched them back together, studied them, critiqued them, fallen in love with them. The written word is a remarkable way of telling a story, and it’s my privilege to be able to work with authors on stories they want to bring out into the world.
I work best at developing worlds, characters, and the plots you’re interweaving throughout the novel.

ME AS AN EDITOR
YOU WILL RECEIVE A 10+ PAGE EDIT LETTER WITH ALL FULL MS FEEDBACK.
I am supportive, honest, and will tell you where your strengths are. I propose questions which make you think more about your MS and the information the reader needs or wants to see. My passion for novels as a writer and a reader transfers into editing – I want to make your book sing, and it’s the developmental stages where I can help most.
I can also focus on grammar, if that is something you feel you need.
Two of my short film dramas, both with fantastical elements (now I realise it was magical realism) won Best Drama. I was praised for my characterization not only in dialogue but in what I did to show it. I’m great with characters, and I know how to make individual voices shine. I’m excellent on natural, character-driven dialogue, pacing and plot holes. I’m not afraid to tell you if you get too rambly! But I want to help you bring out the core of the story you’re trying to tell.
“I hired Jade for my Urban Fantasy first in series and I found her comments to be very helpful. She pointed out where I could add in more details and scenes to help strengthen character bonds and scenery. She also points out the bits she likes, which gives my ego a little boost
Reasonably priced, as she does two passes of the MS.
Thanks so much, Jade!” – N.D Iverson, author of New Wings
“Jade was so encouraging! After receiving conflicting feedback on my query, I over-edited it into a disaster. Jade pointed out everything that needed clarification and gave much needed direction for how to fix it. I definitely recommend her services!” – Amber R. Duell, author of Dream Keeper due in 2018 – @AmberR_Duell
“Ms. Hemming’s feedback proved to be invaluable. She saved my query from doom. Her critique comments force the writer to re-examine everything about the query, from the theme, the plot structure, and the characters. I would recommend her services to any writer who seeks representation.” – B. Spencer Edwards – @bspenceredwards
“Having Jade look at two passes of my query has helped me identify the key parts needing attention, and my query feel much stronger now with her feedback. Jade picks up on the little things, and also looks at the bigger picture and overall layout. Definitely recommend her skilled eye and attention to detail for your editorial needs!” – Nicole L. – @Nicole_Lowrey
“Jade has done a few passes on my queries and a developmental edit on my manuscript, and she is a very insightful editor, offering poignant and constructive advice. She is very prompt and thorough with her work, and I found her suggestions very helpful. You won’t be disappointed with her work! :)” – Kelly B – @kbarina13
“Jade gives prompt and detailed feedback, focusing on both a query’s strong points and its weaknesses. I appreciated her identifying exactly what needed to be fixed and how to do it. She clearly has a lot of knowledge about the publishing process. My current query feels ready for agents. I highly recommend her services.” -Katherine T @bookgirl_kt
“It’s like you knew my characters better than I do. Thanks so much!” – Sandi M.
