I'm looking a line/copy editor for my alternate world fantasy novel, Transformation Towards Destiny. It is a fantasy novel that's the 2nd book of a 4 book series. I'm preparing the manuscript for a May 2016 publication. I'm looking an experienced editor within the fantasy genre that has line and copy editing experience. The editor should look for consistency of the words and structure of the novel as well as the grammar and misspellings throughout the manuscript. I will send three to five pages as a sample edit for perspective freelancers and will pay for that edit to see if they are the right fit for this job. I'm looking to get started with the editing process this coming week.

This is a paranormal romance novel length book. I have used grammerly and crit2 on it. Now I am looking for someone to read it and make specific suggestions. This can be a fun job for someone that enjoys paranormal romance books. If you accept the job you are okay with adult situations and language in the book. You MUST give specific feed back chapter by chapter. Example is the pace to fast or slow? Is there a lot of grammar mistakes, what type, punctuation, spelling or? I am not paying thousands of dollars for this. If you do not read this type of book for fun this is not the job for you. In your cover letter: Include what types of books you read for fun. What makes a great paranormal romance in your opinion. If I like the results a higher paying edit of the book will be coming your way. More books will be ready each month and this could be a steady flow of work.
