Looking for Editor/Beta Reader for a long action romance


Recommended Posts

Hi!

It seems that I'm looking for a beta or an editor for the story I am publishing here, "A Night with no Stars":

This story is a translation from Polish and it's ongoing, so far I've translated ten chapters (more or less two chapters per week, but there's no saying that there won't be times of stagnation in the future if the real life strikes). The whole thing is pretty long, Polish version counts around 300.000 words and forty five chapters + prologue, but I'm determined to see it through to the end. It's a romance story with a lot of action that revolves mostly around organized crime, though not only. You're welcome to check the first eight chapters to get a feel for the plot.

Considering that I'm not an English native speaker, I'm sure that I'm making a lot of mistakes I'm not even aware of and there's only so much proofreading I'm able to do on my own. I've never actually mustered up to do any editing since I've completed it, so I haven't worked closely with a beta in a long time (not counting some minor projects). I would appreciate the help of someone who'd be prepared to enter a probably long-term relationship, so we can get through it together.

There is no hurry, I am pretty flexible and if someone is interested I am sure we will make it work :) 

Thanks!

I wouldn’t mind helping you. I have already been following the story so I’m aware of the plot and characters so far.  Drop me a PM and we can talk about it.

I also don't mind editing it for you. Is it just the remaining chapters, or do you want the existing ones editing as well?

Just be aware, if you take me up on the offer, that I can sometimes be busy with other stuff, so don't expect chapters to always be edited super quickly.

I have edited for a couple of other authors on here in the past.

Drop me a PM if you're interested.

      Looking for a beta and/or editor for a summer anthology piece, which is due on 26 May 2016.
       
      It covers a gay man who makes a game out of dating straight men or convincing them to one-night stands, but one of them ends up being more open to a homosexual relationship and pursues him. They are, coincidentally, working for the same office in the same building. The new guy pursues the player.
       
      So yes, I need help writing this and would appreciate suggestions on how to go about it and judge what I have right now. Like many artists, I have a good idea and don't know how to press it further. Also, I want to bring out my characters' personalities more.
       
      For editing, I feel working with a Google docs file would be as much a possibility as passing an attachment back and forth would. The former might be more ideal. Comments are more ideal but in-line edits are welcome.
