Romance novel, looking for general/line editing


I'm looking for an editor to review a 96,733 words romantic suspense/ romantic comedy.

The book has been beta read by a few people, and critiqued/edited already a few times by me and a critique partner, so I think it needs a final fresh eye. :)

I'm on a tight budget, so I'm using the per hour feature to estimate price, but I'd like in fact a cost per word, if possible.

The budget range I chose (250/750) will not cover the book's entire editing (obviously), it's more an indication of how much I can invest on short term. We can add subsequent assignments to complete all chapters, if things go well.

Update : First part of the project is 4 chapters, and initial payment is $100 for general editing (plot, flow).
