I need a line editor

I have written a creative nonfiction book - a series of stories based on my 20 years of personal experiences in real estate in Antwerp Belgium, a cosmopolitan town. The stories describe the sale and purchase of various kinds of residential properties sold and purchased to and from people in different situations: The divorced, the old people, the destitute, the snobbish , the Russians and Indians. Each with his own frame of mind and particular way of negotiation. The book is funny, humane as well as informative about what a broker feels and needs to do to achieve a sale. I would like to have a line editor go through each sentence before I send it out.

The word count is about 55 000 words

I am open to any kind of form of payment- whether fixed price or by the hour. What is important for me is to get the best editor who will love the book and follow its voice.

In the past I have published in the SUN magazine, TIKKUN, AMI magazine, MISSOURI REVIEW as well as received the editor' prize of MISSOURI REVIEW for a story called 'A Bride For My Son.'

I have been twice mentioned in 'The Best Essay of The Year.'

Am looking forward to your reply
