We are interested in finding someone to handle the writing and publishing of Jack Mortenson's autobiography. Jack has played a significant role in the development of Christian radio ministries throughout the United States. He has spoken his memoirs into voice recordings that have been transcribed into Word documents. At this point, he needs to find someone to edit and write his story, then to follow up into publishing it into book form. We are looking at approximately 150,000 words as the transcription currently exists. He mainly is interested in doing this for his family and friends, so we are looking at an initial possibility of somewhere between 50 and 200 books, but perhaps more depending on the scale that Mr. Mortenson ultimately envisions. Please e-mail me immediately if you have interest in this project and, if so, what would be costs be?
Thank you.
Jo Burton
Personal Assistant to Jack Mortenson
