Project Description

I need a highly experienced "Native English" editor that has a considerable amount of prior book "editing" skills. I'm only looking for the best - so, if that's you then I want to hear from you.

The book that needs to be edited is on "Internet Marketing" - so anybody with solid book editing skills and with familiarity to the "Internet Marketing" subject area will be viewed upon very favorably. But even without any understanding of Internet Marketing - you can still apply as long as you have solid book editing skills.

But, if you don't have any book editing experience, then please do NOT apply for this job. I repeat - do NOT apply for this job. However, if "book editing" is what you enjoy doing and you're really good at it, then please let me know right away. Please keep in mind, as I said in the beginning, I'm looking for a highly experienced "Native English" editor that can do the following things for this project:

1. Make any grammar, punctuation, spellinz, and word usage changes as needed.

2. Make any content changes to ensure that the writing flows properly for a book within the theme of the book (and any sub-themes).

3. Remove any writing that does not fit or apply in context with the book as a whole.

4. Ensure that the writing supports and backs up the book's main agenda and scope throughout the book.

5. Be able to provide me with a 600 word conclusion summary for the whole book.

This book is 137 pages long and has approximately 40,000 words as it stands right now. In other words, this is NOT a very long book when it comes to book industry standards. Nevertheless, I do require that this book be thoroughly edited and prepared for publication.

NOTE: No formatting of any kind is required. In other words, you don't need to worry about reformatting this manuscript for any eBook reader or anything like that.

In addition, if you need to make any considerable writing changes, I will gladly pay you the going freelancer writing rate ($[url removed, login to view] per 100 words) for any writing additions that you make (approval required first).

Bottom line is: I need an editor who will edit, correct, and change my book and make sure that everything is correct and flows properly. In order for your bid to be taken seriously, please state in your message previous editing experience that you have (with samples to show me if at all possible) as well as any applicable "Internet Marketing" experience that qualifies you as an editor for this project.

Please keep in mind that I'm looking for people (with editing skills) for the long-term. That is, if you do really well on this project, then I will most definitely like to utilize your services on a ongoing basis, since I'm planning on writing several other books long-term (many are already in the works). In other words, there's plenty of work if you want it. That's why I'm looking for somebody who also really enjoys editing.

Thank you for viewing my post and happy bidding.
