Need: An Editor to Edit my 82,000 words Novel (Volunteer)
Dear World Pulsians,
It is with great respect that I write to you all requesting for anyone who could help me edit my 82,000 word novel titled "Moments of Pain, Moments of truth."
I started writing this novel in 2008 in China, and completed it in 2009 when I came back to Cameroon.
"Moments of Pain, Moments of Truth" is a semi autobiographical novel that contains about 80% of my real life experiences in China, and 20% of other people's experiences adapted to fit into the context of the novel.
I will remain indebted to anyone (editor) who will make my dream of publishing this novel to become a reality.
I trust in all my sisters of this forum, while hoping to hear from you,
Here is a synopsis of my novel
Have you ever lost a relationship that you were committed to after eight years? With a child to show for it? Did you ever think traveling abroad was going to be a timely solution to this traumatizing loss? Moments of pain is an eventful novel that seeks to tell the story of Anthonia as she flew into china in search of greener pastures and a better future filled with true love. If you understand what it takes to live with an expired visa in a foreign country, then you’ll understand the hurdles that stood in Anthonia’s path. No visa in china meant no job. And the love search? Interesting! The struggle for survival converted the original version of Anthonia’s ‘love search’ to a ‘must love.’ Four love relationships characterized Anthonia’s 2 years stay in China. These four guys were from two different continents and three different countries in the world; Cameroon, Nigeria and USA. The most cherished relationship with the USA guy lasted for a day...you will find out why in this novel. These relationships are filled with shocking revelations from the part of these guys; revelations that stood against Anthonia’s religion and upbringing. The power of love and the need to survive made these revelations to mean almost nothing as time went on. Drug peddlers, fey men (popularly called 419), were just some of the revelations Anthonia got from those guys. She experienced these painfully but unavoidably. Such criminal activities were just the order of the day in the God – forsaken city of Guangzhou. Anthonia gets two employments as an ESL teacher in a college, and in a kindergarten. The former lasted for one month while the later for two days. Mysterious! Anthonia faces two deportations from china, with the last being the last nail on her coffin. Anthonia’s friends also passed through these traumatizing experiences.
Moments of pain is a novel that tells 80% of the author’s true life experiences in China, and 20% of other peoples experiences and stories adapted to be the experiences of Anthonia.
It is an emotional, romantic and suspense filled novel. Hold your emotions as you prepare to read through the this manuscript.
