Editor needed to help restructure an existing fiction manuscript.

The book is currently 150,000 words, and it needs to be sharpened, shortened, and honed into a more coherent narrative. The story takes place in modern-day Russia.

Fee is negotiable. There will be several milestone payments, including a bonus upon publisher's acceptance.

Previous experience editing fiction at this length is required, as is the ability to hit established deadlines.

For this job, you must be skilled at narrative structure, rather than rewriting. I am not looking for a line editor. I am looking for a collaborative partner who can help mold the existing work into a marketable product.

Thank you.
