I would like to find an experienced, qualified, (UK) English native speaking editor who would copy/line edit my full length memoir manuscript of 291,000 words.I am in the process of splitting it into 2 books with a cliffhanger in between. Possible downscaling would be welcomed, and conversations/dialogues may be shortened. I am aware that I sometimes switch from past to present tense, so this should be picked up by line editing and copy editing.
This is my three-year project of a non-fiction true life story. “The kiss from a Devil” is a parallel story of two sisters, both going through two separate abuses. One goes through what every family at one point goes through one way or the other-an affair, which leads to physical, mental and financial abuse. The other, trapped in a sexually unfulfilling marriage, learns a horrific truth about her husband being a pedophile and needs to confront him and his victims. Both sisters, longing for normal, ordinary life, whilst their only tool is survival, determination, and unconditional love, come to the same conclusion at the end of their journey.
This story offers a rare glimpse into detailed life with an abuser who disguises himself as a man who can do no wrong. As the author, I chose to disclose my erotic, exclusively detailed stories, which are emotionally raw, honest, sensual, provocative and romantic, and combats the world’s prejudice open talk about sex taboo. I believe my sense of humour lifts and separates from traditional tell-all. And my practical advice on how to deal with crises will link us all in a shared language.
Please let me know how you can help lift this project off the ground.
