In Progress

Editing and proofing of a controversial bartender-tell-all.

I have a long suffering project that must come to an end quickly, but accurately. I have sunk over 5 years into this book so far, but can't seem to get it over the line; finished or wrapped up. It is a book of short stories, taking from interviews I have conducted with bartenders from all over the world. I have 40 short stories that are done, except the polishing, editing and trimming of fat, of course. The whole book is similar to the likes of Kitchen Confidential, but instead of one voice, we have many throughout the book and many different locations too. It's a bartender's anthology of hilarious tales and dirty tricks.

The editing must be done in the Queen's English and preparing the manuscript for publishing is not out of the question, however, right now, I'm just looking to get some much needed help to get the bloody thing finished and grammatically correct.

Thank you!

Adam
