I write novels for young adults and sell them on Amazon.

Job description:
I am currently writing a kindle book that is in the young adult genre and I will need an editor to ensure the book is of the highest quality. You will need to have skills to review both the spelling, sentence structure and overall flow of the book to make it a quality project. You should also be able to let me know if you feel part of the book is lacking enough description and tell me where I need to cut words.
I should have it completed and the first edit done by me within 1 week of the job closing. Right now I have 15,000 words and I expect it to take another 10K words to write the story.
Please let me know how long you expect it to take to edit the book.

Type and topic of document:
Kindle EBook, about high school relationship. First in a series.
Total word count:
It will be about 30,000 words max, most likely a little less like 25,000

Type of review:
All of the Above
