“Jaym Gates bought one of my stories for an anthology. During the editing process, she made what seemed as a small tweak of a single scene which turned into a major improvement of the story as a whole. She is an amazing editor, of the rare variety who see what the story wants to be when it grows up and who is capable of helping it reach its potential.” -Anatoly Belilovsky

“Jaym has an incredible eye for detail and an innate understanding of story. Her feedback always helps bring out the hidden gems in my work and sets my brain to making new connections.” – Natania Barron
