Project Description

Hi. I would like someone to help me finish writing a fiction book. All important factors for the project are done and will be provided for you. Although it is mostly finished, I think it needs some professional touches. The information is very detailed and thorough, so you won't have to do as much work. What I need is for someone to put all of the information that I have written into a better format. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to complete the entire book, because of my new strenuous work schedule, however I would be happy to answer any questions you have at any time. There are fifteen chapters in the book, all of which are described in great detail.

Basic Synopsis: In 1906 USA, a beautiful young heiress to one of the wealthiest families in the country mysteriously dies. Because there is no evidence of physical harm to her, the death is deemed inconclusive by authorities.

Her six siblings all blame themselves, individually for her death. They eventually met after her funeral and explained why they each felt guilty about potentially causing their sister's death. Each of these stories are separate chapters where the reader is taken back into the past. There, more is learned about the entire family and their world.

Eventually, after every story is told, they all turn on each other, losing their guilt, and begin accusing others for their sister's death. Because of this, an argument erupted that brought about old issues between them. When it was over, they decided to cut all communication, because certain things that were said were too personal. They had no connections between each other for 20 years and met at their father's funeral in 1926. After the argument, they each told someone else about what happened between them, and reactions from the people who find out mirror the reactions of the reader.

All of the siblings meet again at the reading of their father's will and all relations are cold and hostile.

Also, this novel is allegorical. It asks the reader if something like this can happen in society in general. If there is an intense conflict in the world, such as the one told in the plot, would the same thing happen? Or would people be able to work together to fix the problem?

I've never written a novel before, but I see that the standard for novels, is about 350-400 pages.

I am thinking of a 80,000 -160,000 word count for the entire novel. So far, I don't have a turnaround time frame just because of my busy work schedule. 3,000-4,000 words per chapter seem to be the common number for a novel of this size.
