Hello,

I am looking for a YA Fiction Book Content Editor. I have written a contemporary young adult fiction novel and I need someone who doesn't love me to read it and help me flesh out the story.

This is my first novel and I intend to self publish it. But I am fanatical about quality work and refuse to put out poorly edited and poorly polished work.

That's where you come in. Right now the book is raw, probably has some typos and is not perfect. It probably needs some rewrites and probably needs some fattening.

I need someone who can point out inconsistencies, problems with plot, glaring plot holes and also to see if you can understand clearly what is happening in the story so that I can fix it before final polish.

You don't have to be an award winning editor, just someone who knows YA fiction and committed to quality as much as I am. And you have to speak and be excellent at American English and know a lot about American life.

As a try out and you will read the first 50 pag...
