Let me first say that I need professional help. Looking for retired publishing editors or agents primarily. Seasoned authors are fine as well. Here is what I need...

I have a book started with almost 3 chapters completed. It is a nonfictional book but is partially narrative. It is a business book for entrepreneurs. I am a fairly successful marketing consultant and also have a platform for speaking and training business owners in marketing.

I need someone who is really good to help me with the proposal, query, and to edit the first 3 chapters of the book for submission to agents. I have read about 10 books on the subject of writing a book even though I am a first time author.

Due to running my business, I am short on time but want to do this right. Please post your bid and qualifications.

If you need more info, just message me. Posting this job on my phone, so sorry for the shortness.

Thanks for looking.
