Book Editor for Zombie Horror Novel

Hello All,

I am looking for an editor/proofreader to help me fix up a novel I'm been writing. The project will start in 2-4 weeks, and I'll be needing the following:

1. Basic proofreading services including checking for errors in grammar, punctuation, syntax, spelling, consistency and formatting.

2. Editing services to help make sure the book is clear, it makes sense and is generally good for the genre.

3. Able to make suggestions in tone/direction if something does not make sense, etc.

I'm looking for someone who

1. Has experience in proofing, editing, etc.

2. Has experience working in the sci-fi / horror genre (if you've edited a zombie book in the past, even better)

3. Native language is english

4. Has clients that I may contact for reference

5. Has worked with first time authors (yes, this will be my first book)

I estimate that there will be between 55k and 60k words when completed.

I'd like to have an editor selected and ready to go by the time I finish writing.

I will submit the novel to agents/publishing houses. However, I may ultimately wind up self publishing.

Look forward to answering any questions!
