No minimum purchase is required and there is no limit to the number of vouchers you can apply towards an edit, so everyone can contribute a voucher to fund your edit!

Spread the word to your family and friends – a voucher from JF Editing is the perfect holiday gift to help support you and your writing.

Free Sample Chapter Edits

Written by Tony Fyler on . Posted in General, News, Services

SurpriseWe’ve recently had a  number of authors approach us, incredulous that we offer free sample chapter edits.

So many in fact, it seemed worth putting together a Frequently Asked Questions list, to help authors understand how it works.


1.  Yes, they’re completely free.

2.  Yes, they’re completely without obligation – you can take our sample chapter edits and never speak to us again if you like.

3.  This is how they work. You email us at, attaching your sample chapter (ideally your first chapter) as a Word document. (No, there’s no facility to upload your chapters directly on this website). We acknowledge receipt of your work, and, usually within seven days, we’ll send you back an edited version of your work (using Track Changes, so you can see what we’ve done), a “clean” version of the edit, with all the edits accepted and all the comments removed, and a critique document on the chapter. That’s it. If you don’t want to use us based on what we send you, we’ll wish you well with your writing. If you do want to use us, we talk deadlines and prices.

4.  This is not a limited-time offer. Free sample chapter edits are a fundamental part of the Jefferson Franklin business model.
One free sample edit per author.

5.  We do this because we’re not an average editing house. We believe no author should commit hard-earned cash to an editor without being confident they’re getting a professional service which is right for them.

So no, you have nothing to lose by sending us your sample chapter. Why wait? Email us your chapter today and find out if Jefferson Franklin is right for you.

Oh Say Can You See… The JF Editing Independence Day Sale!

Written by Tony Fyler on . Posted in News, Services

Mr Jefferson...

Jefferson Franklin was named after two great Americans, and while it’s based in Wales, the company is half American in its make-up. So, to celebrate Independence Day, all writers living in the US will be eligible for a 20% discount on all their editing for the space of one day!

The day will begin at 12.01 GMT on 4th July – (20.01 Eastern Time, 14.00 Hawaii Time – 3rd July) – and will run until 12.01 Hawaii Time (06.00 Eastern) on 5th July, to allow a majority of US writers to take advantage of the offer.

NB – we know it’s not really fair to expect writers to have pieces ready for editing on a one-day deadline, so here’s the deal. You don’t have to SEND your work for editing during this one-day period to take advantage of the 20% discount. You only have to BOOK your work for editing during this period to get 20% off, in celebration of Independence Day.

Tell us what your word-count is, how long you’d like the turnaround time to be – from 1 to 4 weeks – and tell us when you think you’ll be ready to deliver the work. We’ll invoice you at the 20% discounted rate, and then when the work is ready, simply send it to us to get it edited to our publishing standard.

Email us to get your discounted quote, and have a great (and economically responsible) Independence Day!

…and Dr Franklin
