I have been writing for 10+ years, and would like to publish my first novel. It is a young adult suspense story with 70,000 words.

I am looking for an experienced developmental editor to help me with phrasing, flow and pace, where I may have not explained something enough, or if something doesn't make sense or is out of place.

I would also appreciate suggestions on the story itself. Identifying plot holes, etc.

I would also like some veteran advice on publishing strategy. Kindle publishing vs traditional publishing, best practices, anything that may help a new author.

Time is not of the essence here, I'm not in a huge hurry.
