I am looking for an experienced and creatively minded developmental editor, who resonates with the subject of spirituality/mindfulness and self-help. (Note: I have set the fixed price to nominally $200, as I would like to hear your bid on the project. (If you prefer an hourly rate, please advise me further).
You should have...
(1) edited traditionally published (not self-published) books; (mandatory);
(2) experience in editing non-fiction books (mandatory);
(3) traditionally published your own non-fiction book(s) (preferred);
(4) worked for a publishing house or literary agency (preferred).
Please provide your detailed work references on the above points. (Note: I am not looking for a line-editor at this stage).
I have attached the first two chapters of my manuscript. To be able to choose the right candidate, I'd like to ask you to review the document, and to provide me with a short feedback loop on what you would work with me on, pointing out the issues/problems that you identify. (during this process, I ask for your unfiltered feedback).
It also gives you the opportunity to evaluate whether or not this project is right for you and to be able to provide me with a US$ quote on a fixed price project.
The book consists of 51,147 words/roughly 220 pages. If you require further information to provide me with an $ estimate, please let me know.
Best wishes, Seb
