Day 9 - Item 4

From Diana Gill, executive editor of Eos (imprint of Harper Collins):

"I will edit and critique the first chapter of a novel (genre, especially sf/f/h, preferred), or the first couple of chapters, up to 30 pages total. Author should include a synopsis of the entire story as well. This edit includes line and story edits, and notes on the overall storyline, plot, market viability, etc.

Please note that due to work considerations, it will take me at least 3 weeks to respond, and probably more than that."

Special note: Dianna Gill launched the careers of bestselling authors Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson, and Jocelynn Drake, with whom she still works. Other authors with whom she has worked include Jonathan Barnes, Brom, Trudi Canavan, Richard Kadrey, Sarah Langan, Patrick Lee, Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Ann Scarborough, Mary Stewart, and more.In addition to sf and fantasy, her interests include horror and supernatural thrillers, alternate history and steampunk.
