Job description:
Hello, I am seeking a skilled and experienced editor who can assist in editing a manuscript of approximately 123,000 words. I am most interested in your expertise and assistance in detecting and correcting any grammar, metaphor, and vocabulary errors that you find. It would be best if we can agree on a flat fee in exchange for my document returned wtih your edits in a tracked document which highlights your professional recommendations.

Type and topic of document:
The project is a manuscript of an Historical Romance Fiction Novel based in the 1920s set in both New York City and Ireland. The main character an Irish immigrant. The manuscript is still a work in progress and since proper grammar is my main weakness, your professional expertise will be most useful and appreciated.

Total word count:
123, 400
