    Helping Writers Create Works of Art

  • Hello & Welcome!

    Welcome to the Home of Beeson Editing Services!

    My name is Jessica Beeson. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Middle School English Education and have spent the majority of my working career in academics.
    I have been blessed to have worked with rising authors and speakers such as Anthony Fonte, Mike Kitko, and Justine Froelker. I have also begun authoring my own book chronicling my family's battle with cancer, liver transplant, and infertility. I look forward to assisting you with your projects. I am familiar with a variety of genres including mystery, paranormal romance, sci-fi, self-help, fiction, and nonfiction works. I not only provide spelling, format, sequence, and grammatical corrections, but I also take the time to meet with you to discuss your vision for the story. This is so that I can keep your writing style, story purpose, and goals in mind while I work with you to create a final product that not only fits what YOU want it to be, but one that your readers will enjoy as well.

    This book features the 2018 update and a 150-question practice exam.

    This book serves three main audiences. The first audience consists of anyone employed or seeking employment as a private investigator, criminal defense investigator, SIU investigator, claims investigator, background investigator, loss prevention investigator, an investigator assigned to a law firm, or any investigator who does not have access to law enforcement restricted information. These readers will find this book a helpful resource guide to conducting a basic investigation. The second audience includes those looking for assistance in learning how to open and manage a California-based investigations agency. The third audience, for which this book has been particularly helpful, involves those preparing to pass the California Private Investigator Exam. Readers in this category have found the discussion about the Business and Professions Code, Penal Code, Civil Code, Civil Code of Civil Procedures, Evidence Code, and the Vehicle Code particularly beneficial. This book also contains information on background investigations, client intake procedures, criminal defense strategies, court procedures, ethics, gathering information, marketing, planning, surveillance techniques, public and private record searches, skip-tracing procedures, traffic collision investigations, trial preparation, and much more.

    In addition, this book contains legal analyses of court decisions and statutory law. Although nothing in this book can be construed as legal advice, Shaun has hired several attorney-editors to help the reader understand and clarify the book’s content.

  • Justine Froelker

    Author of Ever Upward

    Ever Upward is not the typical infertility book and blog filled with follicle counts, Clomid crazy train side effects and recounts of painful procedures. It is filled with struggle, hope and recovery, it is a book and blog about life. Ever Upward is my story, and yet every couple’s story; parent or not, because behind the wall of silence, shame, the smile, and the ‘I can do everything’ attitude lies millions of people suffering in silence with the pain of infertility, pregnancy loss and recovery. And yet our connection to our stories, is the only way back to the truth of who we are, to own ourselves again.

    Shaun Sundahl

    A BOOK WRITTEN BY A POLICE OFFICER, FOR A FELLOW LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER.

    Each year, hundreds of current, former, and retiring law enforcement officers, attempt the transition to private or non-sworn investigator employment. Although the officer may have excelled in his or her former career, starting one's business is challenging. More challenging, is having to function in the private sector without the same resources and authority law enforcement traditionally has — the National Crime and Information Center, the California Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (CLETS), the ability to arrest for impeding an investigation, the cooperation that is generally received when one is a sworn officer, a helicopter, a team of undercover investigators, and a dispatcher.
    Coming from a law enforcement background, Shaun understands this lack in resources. With this book, Shaun has created a bridge to cover the uncertainties of what a non-sworn investigator can and cannot do with the resources available.

    Author of New Beginnings

    Anthony (Tony) Fonte is a New Beginnings coach, an author, a speaker, and most importantly, a dad. Inspired by the tragic loss of his wife in 2011 and the many life experiences he has walked through, Tony began a journey of intense personal growth and vulnerability where he learned tools to help him create a new beginning for him and his daughter. He was (and still is) intentional about overcoming tragedy as well as his past, so that he can be the man, and the dad, he wants to be. Now, he teaches these same tools to help others achieve their new beginning and transform their lives and their relationships. You can feel, see, and hear the passion when Tony talks about these trials and the triumphs. The systems and tools Tony uses in his one-on-one sessions, his small groups, or his large groups from the stage help others achieve results extraordinarily fast. He believes that life is a journey, not a sprint, and hopes that New Beginnings will help you find the life that YOU were created to live.

    Shaun E. Sundahl

    Author and Private Investigator

    In the 2014 edition of my book, The California Legal Investigator, many of my colleagues have said great things about my book's content, but criticized the grammar, syntax, punctuation, and the clarity. So, in late 2017, I hired Jessica Beeson from Beeson Editing to do a final edit on my manuscript to fix those problems.

    Those who know me, know that I don't "sugar coat" reviews and this review is no exception. Jessica's pricing was a little higher than other freelance editors who worked on my book, but her prices were lower than brick and mortar copy editing companies. The saying of "you get what you pay for" holds true and Jessica's work was exceptional.

    Overall, I saw value in Jessica's work and I would recommend her service to anyone who appreciates the work of a professional editor.

    As of October 30, 2017, my book hit #1 on Amazon's Kindle Legal Section. Sometimes throughout the day it will shift to #2 or #4, but that's not too bad considering there are over tens of thousands of books on Kindle. Again, thank you to Jessica and her company for making this happen!!

    "We had Jessica help our daughter with her college entrance essay and not only did she get accepted to the nursing program at SLU, but she also got a scholarship! We can't thank her enough for all her help!"
