Hello!
I would like an editor to work on the first two chapters of my women's fiction novel before committing to the entire work. The chapters are 12 pt font, double spaced, and apprx 12 pages per chapter.

If I gel with editor, I'd like to hire him/her to work with me on revising the entire novel that is apprx 110,000 words, though I plan to trim it to 85,000 or so.

This is a work that has been sent to agents. Two reputable agents have requested to see a revision. The novel deals with the relationship of an African American mother and her two daughters. It is set in the mid-70s.
