Fantasy author, looking to shape up his first book.

Job description:
I am writing a novel and need help with the editing process. English is not my first language, so I can make grammatical errors. Also, I just want an honest, informed opinion.

Type and topic of document:
Fantasy novel. I have the idea developed and the first few chapters written, but need help shaping what I have.
Total word count:
19,300

Type of review:
All of the Above

Additional comments:
I don't have a big budget, but I want to invest in a good editor. I'm willing to give a new contractor a chance, just make sure you send me a sample of your editing skills, or any available references.

Thank You.
