I am looking for an affordable content/developmental editor to look over the first 15K words of my middle grade historical novel. If you have any recommendations for editors, I would love to hear them!

Thanks so much!

Another person to check out is Allison Weiss, former editorial director at Skypony who is now offering freelance services. I worked with her on my second novel (before the entire children's staff was fired) and she is amazing!
