I am looking for an experienced proofreader and editor to help me edit my novel before I pitch it to a literary agent.
At the moment, I am guessing that it is going to be between 60,000 and 70,000 words. However, to save myself money, I would much rather that we do it bit by bit.
I would be grateful if you could, therefore, advice me of your price per 5000 words.
Once I have found an editor that fits my needs, I will continue to work with them on a regular basis and I am interested in a long-term partnership.
Please also note that although I am interested in making it as affordable as I can, I will not chose price over quality. I would rather pay a little bit more and get someone who is experienced and skilled.
The novel is set during WWII but there is no need for historical understanding. The novel is written in UK English and although I am not an expert, I imagine that it would just involve tweaking grammar, spelling and checking for any story inconsistencies.
