I have a completed manuscript of roughly 84,000 words which needs to be edited for grammar, syntax, voice and consistency. Looking for someone with experience in editing and creative writing who can polish my work and ensure it is ready for publication.

I have attached the first chapter from the book to help you determine what level of editing will be required and allow you to get a feel for my style of writing.

Seeking quotes from interested parties.
