Looking for a contractor to edit my 61K paranormal novel. I would prefer to work with someone with past experience editing fiction books. Please provide samples with your bids, relevant experience and links to any online editions you've edited. Mostly I'm looking for someone to improve sentence structure and fix grammar errors. I've done a lot of self-editing, so manuscript isn't very rough. I would need someone to begin around the week of Feb 11 and have final edits done by Feb 27. Thank you!
