Summary

We are looking for a native English editor who can edit a translation of a historical novel in perfect English.

Detailed description

Background

The proposed historical novel is already published in Pakistan and India in the local languages. There is an English text available, which need correction and editing.

The novel is approximately 300 pages.

This English edited translation is supposed to be published by Penguin India in 2025.

Of course the name of the editor will be mentioned in the colophon.


Content

This historical novel is about the Arab invasion in the state of Sindh (India) circa 712 CE; this fiction tells the story of those conquered in battle (the story of the other side of the coin) which is never told or written.
