Editor Needed for a Book Manuscript

I wrote a manuscript for a book and I need someone to edit and proofread it. The book is a fictional feminist piece, that involves magical realism. The work involves editing, grammar checking, character development, story structure and flow. My main concern is maintaining my voice and “weirdness” through the editing process. Being able to write the blurb on the back of my book would be great.

Your qualifications:

- Native English including excellent writing, grammar, spelling and formatting

- A work style that is extremely detail oriented

- Strong communication skills

Skills: Editing, Proofreading, Creative Writing, Copywriting, Fiction
