I need an experienced fiction editor who is familiar with: -Story arcs -Character development -Character epiphanies -Evocative / powerful scenes I have a three literary short stories I need to get ready for publication. What I need is not a copyeditor to focus on things like punctuation, etc. Rather, I need an experienced fiction editor to provide detailed and in-depth feedback in order to tighten the pieces up. If you can provide samples of the sort of work you have been involved with and the style of pieces you specialise in, please include. Also, if you could mention a couple of your favourite authors, that would be helpful. If you have experience editing for a literary magazine or simply have an excellent sense of story, I'd love to hear from you. If this is done well, there is potential for ongoing work.

I currently have a copy editor that I am very happy with; however, I want to hire a proofreader to ensure that my books are error-free. This is a series and I like to work with the same people on projects. My expectation is to use the same proofreader throughout the remainder of this series. I need someone who is reliable, easy to work with and proficient. I realize that one person can not catch all mistakes which is the reason I want to add a proofreader. My expectations are high, so I ask that you are honest with yourself before you submit your proposal. Do you have an eagle eye and are you capable of catching almost all the errors? If not, please do not submit. This is the third in the series. The genre is Urban/Contemporary Fantasy, 108 K words. The following things are done by the copyeditor: substantial line edit, another edit and light proofread after I make the the recommended changes. Unfortunately it is unrealistic to expect that the copyeditor will catch all errors...

Hi, Aaron - we met a while back on BookRix when you submitted "Stories About the Rain" for a contest. Because you're such a polished, adept writer, I would like to hire you to help me edit/proof my latest book. I've edited and re-read the thing until my eyes automatically cross when I open the document, and I need an objective, intelligent individual to give it a final read-through, make editing suggestions, look for inconsistencies, all that. I've had some awful experiences with so-called editors who wanted to charge me price of a small country but who couldn't spell, made several grammatical errors, and basically lied about having read the entire sample. You, on the other hand, I trust. I didn't know you were doing this sort of thing, but earlier today one of our new members asked for reading suggestions, so I recommended your work, which got me wondering how you were, which in turn made me think I should Google your name and see what came up. This Elance thing did, so......

I am in the process of publishing a book that contains Tools and Resources for Working Online. Each inserts needs to be edited, but also once you complete the editing it needs to be organized in accordance with the TOC. But, you also need to understand if it makes sense for an insert to be under a specific category. I know t sounds confusing right now, but if you are hired you will receive 1-2 examples that will help you in the categories. Please do not apply for this if you are stretched out. I need this one to be completed within 4 weeks; this means, editing, proofreading, categorizing (BTW you will not do all the tasks; it needs to be reviewed by more than a pair of eyes) Thanks Job description: See above Total word count: Not known yet Type of review: Editing (deep line editing for syntax), Subject Verb Agreement

I am currently writing a book that specifically deals with some of the ways we are sideswiped in life by good and bad surprises. The bulk of the book deals with lessons I have learned in some of my life's unexpected twists and turns, specifically in losing my wife in a car accident in 2001. The tone is very conversational, light hearted in one moment and perhaps even dark in another. It is raw with little varnish without being vulgar, but still carries intelligent thought and musings. I am currently about halfway through writing and would like to be able to submit a section/chapter at a time if possible. I am bent on having a complete manuscript by mid-August.
