Hi, I have been working with a co-author and I think it's time to seek out an editor. The book is a suspense crime thriller, approximately 75,000 words and I think 30 chapters at this point. **There are mentions of child abuse, murder, kidnapping, suspicious events, etc. I do NOT think it is too graphic but if this material is offensive or triggering for someone, it's probably not the best book for you to edit. That said, I think Stephen King has darker work than we do.** I'm seeking a professional editor and willing to pay for this. I don't know what is reasonable but I will be shopping around and asking people. This is book #1 in a series, it is currently planned to be three books total but might go up to four. I would like a price for editing one book and a timeline & I would also like a price for editing three books total. The current plan is one book per year and to self publish. Also, IMPORTANT - in addition to writing this and spit-balling ideas with my co-author, I have also been training and starting a new job in my personal life. I am RARELY on this site so I will probably not see replies til next week. (Second week of August) You can private message or post a comment reply, both are ok. Other people might have similar questions so comment replies might get you additional work from other aspiring writers as they are public.
