I actually happen to be a seasoned NYC copy editor myself.
So why do I need another editor?
Well, I edit friends' books sometimes, and I'd like to find a senior Developmental Editor with strong credentials in the publishing industry (someone who's actually worked as staff developmental editor in publishing) to meet with me on a regular basis for supervision/mentoring. Retired welcome.
Local to NYC preferred.
As to personality, a good combination of nonconformism and warmth would be best.

My joy in life is finding editorial errors in books. I am an avid reader with a Master's in English. I chose English because of my love of books. If given this opportunity, I will edit to your heart's desire.
