Freelance Fiction Editor Wanted for Noble Romance Publishing

Post date: 20 April 2011
Noble Romance Publishing, LLC is seeking copy/content editors. These are freelance/contract worker positions. Must have a firm grasp of grammar and fiction writer's craft. Previous experience preferred but not necessary. Here are the details. If you are interested, please email.

1. Editor must be qualified and capable of providing full edits - content and copy - on *all* romance sub-genres, from sweet to erotic, both heterosexual and GLBT. We are also launching a Young Adult romance line, and are in need of editors to handle these manuscripts and authors.

2. Editor must be familiar with or willing to learn about the e-publishing industry and the business of romance fiction.

3. Editor must be willing to take on a "stable" of assigned authors and work directly with those authors on an ongoing basis, preferably in some sort of group email setting (such as Yahoo! Groups). Editor must have an aptitude for dealing with fiction authors, be open, friendly and accessible. The number of authors assigned varies based on editor's requirements and availability.

4. Editor must be willing to provide feedback on authors' works-in-progress, story ideas, etc. Editor must also be willing to discuss craft issues and give guidance. For example, if the editor is constantly seeing the same sort of error in manuscript after manuscript, they might provide links to articles that relate to this error and provide information, via email, on how to correct said errors.

5. Editor must be willing to read their assigned authors' new submissions. Authors will send partial manuscript (3 chapters + synopsis). Editor will read said partial (compensation = $10/partial), and, if applicable, request the full manuscript. Editor will read the full manuscript (compensation = $20/full), and either request revisions, recommend the manuscript be contracted, or reject the manuscript w/an explanation as to why said manuscript doesn't work for NRP.

6. Editor compensation per full edits is based on word count - 30K + = $250. 10,001 - 29,999 = $150. 10K and under = $100. Please be aware, some manuscripts will need much more work than others. In the end, you can expect a reasonable mix of quality.

NRP is fairly young (est. 2007), but very stable, and there is a lot of potential for growth within the company. If, after reading these additional requirements, you are still interested in the position, please let me know. I will need you to provide a sample edit on a portion of a manuscript, so I can get a feel for your abilities and editing style.
