You Need an Expert in Your Corner

You’ve got fantastic books, a passion for growth, and a mind that’s helped you conquer mountains as you’ve built your ambitious publishing vision.

You’ve got loads of things demanding your time. Yikes!

Whether it be work responsibilities, family commitments, health issues, or just a crazy desire to sleep now and then, you can’t tackle this alone (or you could, but the last thing you need is to burn out–again).

You need a fearless book strategist you can trust to understand your unique words and vision, give you specialized guidance, and keep their expert eyes on the market to make sure your books connect with your ideal readers (you know, those readers who love giving you five-star reviews) and get you consistent sales.

I got you covered, epic author.

With over a decade of experience, an obsession with marketing strategy, and a deep respect for your unique words, I’m here to take your story to the next level. 

WARNING – deep thinking, polishing, and growth are all hazards of working with me. Things might get intense, and there’s always homework—but there’s also good humor, encouragement, and practical advice to get you to your finish line victoriously (without burning out).

Deep breath. Release. 

We’ve got this!

TL;DR? 😉 Hire me to get:

What People Are Saying

""I wanted an editor who loved my story as much as I did. I had a lot of blind spots that needed rewrites, but I didn't want to lose the quality of my story. I appreciated Janeen's work and guidance. I love how she's helping me to be a better writer. I feel encouraged to keep writing."
“It felt like a risk and an investment for me to do an edit, but I am so happy I chose you. You really came through for me above and beyond what I'd expected, and helped me pinpoint those problem areas I was FEELING (making me feel anxious and lack confidence in my story) but not able to identify. Such a great experience!"
