This book is roughly 90,000 words. I am looking for an editor for grammar, syntax, etc. (will also be looking for someone to format).
The book, based on current estimates from others, is well written and so doesn't require complete re-write. This is, however, a professional book and needs to be solid in grammar, sytax, sentence structure, etc.

So I'm looking for a talented editor to make my (and my wife's) book shine. It is called Amazing Intimacy: How to Create a Spectacular Marriage, In and Out of the Bedroom. I will also be writing subsequent books and so looking for a partner throughout my writing career. I've attached a short sample of my work. Hopefully you're willing to provide credentials and references. Thanks. Doug Gustafon
