Project Description

I have written a book under contract on the subject of dog problem behavior solving and how to understand dogs on a level of depth that is unlike most dog training and behavior books. I have Asperger's syndrome and utilize my unique way of viewing the world to help owners understand their pets. I have written the manuscript in full. However, my publisher and I want to better integrate the relationship between being on the autism spectrum and what I do with dogs to give true insight to a dog's reality (especially in the context of problem behaviors). This new direction the book needs to go in will require some rewriting to integrate it into the existing manuscript.

My biggest problem is that I can articulate all the abstract concepts I teach naturally when I am working with actual dogs. It just comes naturally when in front of dogs and their owners. But when I sit in front of the computer, it is hard to convey the same message that needs to be taught to the reader to help them understand and train their dogs.

The book has most of its content and isnt necessarily a full book wirte or ghost write situation. I simply need someone to do all the necessary re-writing, and translation of my thoughts integrated into existing manuscript to create a more reader friendly dog-book that also explores the world of autism and how it relates to what I do and how it can help humans understand animals. (think Temple Grandin meets The dog whisperer!) I have audio, video, articles, social media posts and can explain what I do for days to someone who can listen to my words and translate them into what is needed for an amazing book! Need to hire someone who gets where Im coming from and has experience working with those on the spectrum and animals. No exceptions please... My book contract is with a prominent publisher who has been more than patient with me. Unfortunately, project has been 2 yrs overdue so need someone who is capable of going all out until complete and sees the opportunity putting their heart and soul into this project.
