I am a first time author looking to self publish an ebook. I need help from an experienced editor to comprehensively review my manuscript, which is approximately 45k words. The book is primarily targeted towards professional investors and traders. Therefore, the editor should have some experience with non-fiction books in business and investing.
------------------------------------------
Added 4 JUL 2012, 11:30 AM EDT
To be a little more clear, I am looking for more than just line by line editing. As a first time author, I may also need some re-writing help and help with overall flow of the book.
