“I am very impressed by how easy it was to work with Jeyran. She was able to review The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators in just a few weeks and did a great job capturing the essence of what I worked to convey in the book.”

C. J. Scarlet – Author of “The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators”

“I am extremely grateful to Jeyran for her skillful and sensitive evaluation of my debut novel, “Burying Leo.” Compared to some of my previously published shorter – and often lighter – pieces, including a variety of memoirs and human interest stories, “Burying Leo” served as a full-length literary vehicle to explore the painful consequences of sexual assault.

Not only was I impressed with Jeyran’s ability to summarize the essence of my novel’s story-line in a precise and eloquent manner. She seemed also very aware of some of the underlying messages embedded in those 300-plus pages holding a kaleidoscope of tragic, amusing, annoying, entertaining, and also possibly (to some readers) offensive paragraphs.

Thank you, Jeyran, for a job well done and for giving me the positive feedback that helps keep me going as a writer.”
