I need a copy editor for a 19K+ word fictional post-apocalyptic serial. I'm up against a tight deadline and budget, so speed is of the essence. The work is original fiction for an adult market featuring zombies. If you have any qualms about editing work with violence, adult language, or graphic descriptions--this is not for you. The work has already been "beta" read by four writers so the level of spelling and grammar mistakes is not egregious.
I will ask for a 1K sample edit before money exchanges hands, so that we both feel comfortable with the styles involved.
Deadline is 7 days from receipt of materials.
[EDIT] I added a sample of my writing to give you an idea of what you'll be working with. I also realized that I wasn't clear on the start date for this project, which will be the 3rd week in November. Final edits MUST be complete by Nov. 30. If the delay concerns you, feel free to withdraw your bid.
