Posted 04/05/13: Looking for an editor that has experience with travel writing. I have a 180 page/55,000 word creative non-fiction manuscript that needs editing. It has been through a couple of edits but need someone with a little travel background and maybe the ability to rewrite sentences that do more telling than showing. This is a story about a mom/teenage daughter who trek into a Stone Age tribe in New Guinea for a month and the changes that take place in themselves as well as their day to day unique adventures. Book will have a hundred color images of these primitive people who still wore no clothing and their interactions with these two curious women. Please let me know your time frame, cost and experience. Thank you so very much for your interest. Jackie Chase, (816) 304-9833, firstname.lastname@example.org
