Topic or description of what I need written:
I need a developmental book editor to edit my manuscript. The final manuscript will be 65,000 - 70,000 words

What I already have versus what the provider will deliver:
I will provide a Microsoft Word version of the manuscript. I need it edited with detailed suggestions on the changes recommended

Other context/requirements that providers will need to know:

Specific expertise that I am seeking:
I am not looking for simple proofreading and grammar. I need an experienced non-fiction book developmental editor. I'm looking for someone who can make suggestions on how the book flows, things to add or remove, reword paragraphs so they are more concise and to the point, etc.

This is a christian book so I prefer an experienced book editor who has edited books for the christian women market.

Timeframe for delivery:
2 - 4 weeks
