Looking for Fantasy novel Editor

I'm looking for a Novel manuscript editor with experience in Fantasy style.

I will need Copyediting / Proofreading / Line Editing (e.g., English corrections, typos, paragraph and sentence structure, word use, style enrichment).

It is about 80k words Novel, currently under my final revision (so word count could be a little more in the end).

Requirements for editor:

1. Experience in in-dept line editing/ Copyediting / proofreading / Style enchantment/ Word use

2. Experience with Fantasy style, ability to identify words and phrases that out of style and replace them skillfully.

3. Ability to keep a story flow if you feel there is a blind spot and phrase/words addition are required.

4. Reasonable charges and job delivery time-line.

5. English should be your first language (with degree in creative writing etc. - preferred)

6. Proficient in US English specifically.

* Please contact me with your total price for the project and delivery time-line.

* If you have portfolio please include a sample of past job in similar style.

* If you have done similar projects before, please mention examples by name.

Selected bidders will need to past the style/proficiency test, by editing few pages from random place in the book. This is the first book in the series and if all works well, I would like to work with the same editor for future books, so there is more work to come for the right person.
