2 Chapters of Christian MS need editing

In Progress

I need to hire a native English speaking copy-editor who has experience editing Christian manuscripts.

I need editing done for the first two sample chapters of a book that I am currently preparing to propose to several publishers. The word count of these two chapters combined will total around 9,000 to 10,00 words.

I would prefer to hire someone who is a Christian, since the book is a Biblical devotional for artists and designers with a very particular Christian emphasis and guided theme.

The point is, I need an editor who knows enough about Christianity to confidently edit and suggest alternate wordings of Christian concepts when necessary. I will also give special attention to any bidders who have edited Christian manuscripts.

The MS has been edited several times by myself and by a few friends, but I think it would benefit from a good professional grammar check. Any formatting suggestions will also be very helpful.

In order to bid, please take a look at one of the samples attached and select three paragraphs to edit. Send your proposed edits and any other advice you would professionally offer along with your bid.

Thanks and Happy Bidding!
