I'm attaching a few pages so that you may better know what is needed. Please note that I specifically need a US based editor as all my characters live in the USA. Olga Job description: Plot: Does the plot make sense? Is it believable? Is it satisfying or does it leave the reader frustrated? Themes: Are the themes effectively handled? Are there so many that the book lacks focus? Do they interfere with the plot or complement it? Characterisation: Are your characters well developed and believable? Are they cast in a role that fits their personality? Do they sometimes behave out of character? Point of view/voice: Is the voice consistent or is it sometimes confused? Is the voice authentic?

Hello there! I'm new to this site so I'm just seeing how things work around here. I am on here to try and find a reasonably priced freelance editor that could help edit my YA Fiction novel. I have edited it myself, along with a few friends, but I think it needs to be in professional editing hands before going to any agents/publishers. Any tips or suggestions are welcome! Thanks!!

Hi, I published couple of books last year. I've two more manuscripts ready for intensive editing. Here're details: 1) GENRE: YA ROMANCE. WORD COUNT: 93000(including blurb & all). Tentative start date: 11/5, Finish Date: 10/6. 2) GENRE: HORROR (it's a part of series, though a standalone story). WORD COUNT: 40000. Tentative start date: 10/6, Finish Date: 30/6. Okay, so I'd probably be going for multiple editing rounds for both the books (until, I'm fully satisfied). What I'm looking for is the editor proficient in dealing with non-native speakers, the one who can turn the manuscript very simple to read by removing odd words, awkward writing style and who have interest in the genre. Also one who can work on facts and get them right if required. My first story is based in UK & second in US. Though both are written in US English, I want them to be even I'd select my choices based on your proposal, reviews and your bid (I'm an independent writer, so always tight on budget. Ple...

Ongoing writing spell check a d editing for books, blog and a crowdfunder plus a marketing proposal I'm working on for a glossy company brochure to hand to A -list investors in California Also appreciate anyone who has had experience building a non fiction book. The writing is hurried and often wordy but sturdy in information. I am after a big investor to the tune of over a billion dollars for a world wide new era - from the higher dimension. You must be good at writing and bring this to a tight narrative because people have already been impressed with the body of the project. Would you run a blog and other multimedia projects while I write. I can only pay about $3 an hour until I get an investor/s and then may double the pay. It's ongoing work. I would expect to take up two hours a day of your time for the regular editing, proof reading and internet posting work of this. Go and have a look at my Facebook page Steve Jobs and Garlanda and see if this is the kind of thing you're interes...
