I Want to Edit a Novel

Postby Edward G » Fri Jul 20, 2012 12:28 pm

I truly enjoy editing, and one day I would like to make my living doing it. Right now, however, I'm looking to gain experience. I've edited many short pieces for authors, but I'd really like to edit a novel. I'm willing to edit a novel for someone who has finished one, and I'll do it for free just to gain the credit and experience.

I'd be willing to provide a general copyedit and proofread, and it could be any genre, since I review all kinds of genres at The Novel Report.

I use the "track changes" feature in Word.

Is anyone interested?

PS: I'm also interested in editing another short story and a non-fiction piece, like a query letter, resume, that sort of thing.

Take care,

Ed

lol louise. ;-)

Yeah lots of us critique/help with some edits for each other here. I think many writers feel that they should be their own best editors when it comes to grammar/spelling/etc., but of course once you get an agent or publisher another editor can help out there for the final polish.

There are also query letters and synopses posted in different threads here too for critique, as well as short stories in many genres.

Hi Ed,


I am a new member of this site, and immediately noticed your generous offer to edit a novel in order to gain experience.

Are you still looking for one? I write humorous fiction and have completed a novel of 99 000 words. It is ready for final editing.

Please let me know if you have an interest.

Sincerely,


Rob Q

I have a second volume parody/satire of fiction/fantasy that is approximately 100,000 words. So what is your going price for that and what does it include in regards to your editing services?
