I am a published author with a 250,000-word YA manuscript that requires editing. Definitely needs copy-editing and I will welcome content commentary if necessary (though my abilities with narrative, structure, and character are rather developed).

Seeking a professional editor. Would prefer someone with established elance profile, though a new member with the right experience/abilities/attitude will do just fine.

Thanks!

- Angela

EDIT: Sincerest apologies, everyone!!! Your concerns were all valid; my manuscript is indeed far shorter at 50,000 words (around 200 published pages). Not quite sure how that 2 got in there.
