I have recently moved to Lavenham and am hoping to self publish my first novel a young adult fantasy adventure called 'Princess Leap'. I am struggling to find a freelance editor to help me with the copy edit of my work. I realise this is not quite the right place to look but I thought you may be able to help me in my search, or recommend local editors in the area.
Thank you so much in advance,
All the very best,

‘I am looking for a ghostwriter to help write a novel based upon an unusual true war story which I believe could, with the help of a good novelist, make a very successful novel and even a film; it is totally unique.
I am based near Diss and would prefer to work with an East Anglian writer. I have written a book on business management and marketing which is recommended reading for management students in various parts of the country and for which I receive royalties, but I don't feel capable of adding the necessary support to my too male dominated story.’
