Hello Patrons and Fellow Book Lovers!

I want to thank you for taking the time to look over my notes and needs as a writer. I've run into a funding issue at the final stages of revision in my lovely adventure epic "Dwarves and Dragons". I believe this children's book is impactful in so many delightful ways and has the ability to shine a light on potentially scary things we face in life. It offers a different path on the way to becoming a hero. If you love dragons, magic, and cats or getting lost in a string of secret plots and origin stories. I hope you'll consider helping me perfect the story I've spent the better part of three years pouring my imagination into the pages. 

Alas, I've come to the end of my professional abilities. I need another pair of eyes to take the project and perfect the integrity of the story I lack the editing skills to complete. I am humbly bowing out of its development, and that's where you have the opportunity to step in.

NEEDS: A professional edit

At the average cost of $0.07/wd my 84,000-word complete manuscript (first in a trilogy) it is a hefty chunk of change, and after pouring over the pages myself I realize editors are far more impressive creatures than I've ever given credit for (so thank you for your services).

The storyline is such a joy to see play out in my mind but reading it feels like nails on a chalkboard with moments of brilliance that struggle to shine through in spite of the human errors it comes with.. I want to bring my readers the story I see in my mind, not the version I've read through a million times, with your help I can afford the extra eyes and skills I require to get us there!

Yours and Forever Grateful,
Bernie
