I'm about to turn in my novel for final line edits. I have an editor, and she will be doing line by line edits. I don't need anything that specific. I'm looking more for your feedback. What's working, what is not, suggestions on improvement, that kind of thing.
I need advanced readers with credentials. Are you a best-selling author? Are you a very experienced editor with credentials? Are you an avid reader who can objectively and effectively critique a story and give honest and helpful feedback? Are you a writing coach?
I'm looking for several advanced readers to read and evaluate my novel. I'm not looking for line edits, I'm looking for feedback. You can certainly put your comments into edit bubbles on the side but I don't necessarily need spelling, grammatical or punctuation checks. Those will all be done in the final draft. I need more big picture feedback. Things like: Does the story make sense, are the characters believable, is the character voice consistent, is anything confusing, am I missing any great opportunities to improve the writing, are there any other inconsistencies… that kind of thing. As you have that feedback, you can mark the area of the story that needs that feedback. I don't mind if you make other corrections but it is absolutely not necessary.
I would also like a critique at the end, the kind I might publish on Amazon or on a book cover.
Thank you very much for your time. I'm looking forward to seeing who is out there on upwork that might fit these qualifications.
