Fantasy Novel - Editor/Ghost Writer

I have been working on an epic fantasy series for the past several years. The series is in five volumes in its current structure, each volume ~600 pages. The novel was originally written in my own native language, but due to many restrictions and limited market I have decided to translate and publish it in English.

I have been working with an editor for several months, edited ~160 pages. I love her work but sadly she is very busy and our pace is direly slow. Hence I am forced to look for another editor whom can do 40-50 pages per week.

English isn't my native tongue, I have never studied English. So there may be metaphors and descriptions which are hard for me to translate. It's not just an edit job, you'll need to do ghost-writing as well - maybe a lot of ghost-writing.

Communication is very important to me, I prefer if you use Skype or at least reply to my emails decently. Believe me I won't be bothering you a lot, but taking 7 days to reply to an email is not tolerable in 2016.

I will send you chapter by chapter, you will do your magic and send it back to me. I will leave you notes and comments and resend the chapter to you. You'll apply the comments and we move on to the next chapter. You can say you'll need to do 2 passes by second one only for the notes.

*** Set your price per 250 words.


I have attached a small chapter here - it's 8 pages. Do as many pages as you like, let it be only 1 or the whole 8 and apply it. Also write a bit about yourself - We must be able to maintain a connection.

*** You will not get credited in the published novel.

*** I have uploaded a sample of my previous editor's work. 'Chapter 2- Parmis'
*** 'Chapter 9 - Aetryn' is the raw material.
