The project is now changes to two book each around 200 pages long.

Books will be ready for editing by the end of next week (possibly sooner).


Both books are going to be self-published. The manuscripts are in MS Word right now. It is formatted for a 6 by 9 paperback.

I need someone who is familiar with formatting MS Word to PDF for POD printers (lightning source and create space). I want the formatting to be perfected for POD printers.

Added 22 JAN 2013, 14:17 PM EST
The price for editing two book will obviously be more than originally posted. Please send me estimates for 2 books, both around 200 pages each, 6 by 9 paperbacks.

Around 63,000 words each book.
