I've written a manuscript and now I need someone to help me edit it. I don't have a publisher yet, so I need professional guidance by having someone with experience proofread what I've written and correct my grammar, spelling, as well as provide useful feedback about flow, consistency, content and structure. I'm specifically looking for someone with a strong grasp of the English language as well as proficient to extensive experience with editing self-help books.
------------------------------------------
Added 21 OCT 2012, 11:43 AM EDT
NOTE: The manuscript is 222 pages (60,000 words)
