Perhaps an unusual assignment for an editor. I have completed my murder mystery novel. It has been edited and revised. It has been copy-edited. Now I want someone to go through it one more time. With the aim of raising the standard of the book one more notch, I want a fresh view from someone who has never read it before; who is free of distractions like error-spotting & copy-editing; and who reads it like an ordinary reader, for the pleasure.
...and I want that person to give me feedback on the investigative plot and the overall dramatic impact, and identify weaknesses such as:
1. any storyline/timeline confusion in the investigation
2. any uneven development of the dilemma of the main character
3. any unnecessary repetition.
4. any disappointments which might be susceptible to repair

Your report to me will read more like a book review than an editing report. Except that you will include specific & direct references to where the weaknesses are.

THE SUCCESSFUL CANDIDATE:...
