I require proofreading & editing services of fictional, science fiction short stories for a self published eBook.
I'm making a collection of science fiction short stories for publishing as an (Kindle) eBook. Instead of my usual editor I'd like to trial this service. As well as basic proof reading (I consider basic proofreading checks to be: grammar, spelling and punctuation), I would also like the following editing services:
- Does the writing flow, or does the sentence structure need improvement?
- Are there any redundant words or duplication?
- Overall, is the story message clear, and enjoyable to read?
The total collection is 69,000 words spread over 15 stories and is in UK English. I'm flexible on the editing time scales and in no real rush so will consider almost any time scale. I have the stories in Word format and would prefer to keep them in that format although I will consider editing on paper prints. I will pay by PayPal and retain all copyright to the work, although I am also very happy to credit the editor on my website, Facebook page and in the eBook itself.
