Hiring astronomer for science fiction?

  1. Nov 9, 2013 #1
    I'd like to hire an astronomer to help me with a writing project (fiction). Do you guys have any tips on how I can go about doing this? The work should be somewhat simple (I would think at least), it involves crafting a fictional galaxy and a few star systems therein.

    Sorry if this is the wrong forum section to post this, I didn't think there was better option. Thank you for your time.

    I think there are any number of reputable astrophysicists who would gladly reply to polite questions at no charge on the net.
