The Pencil Test

Author’s review

In both edits I received, my editor's notes have been exact and thorough. I appreciate the timeliness of her edits. Also, I appreciate the ease of submission.

I hired FirstEditing on a whim, after searching for editors via the internet. The pricing is competitive and the quality of service is comparable to editors inside of the industry (I have published with a major publishing company, worked with an agent, and publicists).

I will continue to use First Editing for my independent projects. I think the service is great.


James "Jay" Guilford

A short introduction

When a white teen transfers to an all-black high school, she tells a reckless lie that catapults her into popularity, and controversy.

Author: Jay Guilford

James Guilford's writing is inspired by his work with homeless, drug-addicted, and disconnected youth across the United States.

In addition to writing fiction and screenplays, James hosts talks about youth work. Also, he coordinates Cirque du Soleil's youth-at-risk programs in the US.
