We have a draft children's book that we need reviewing and editing.

The text is 2250 words over 250 lines (6 Letter pages). This also include text that describes our illustration requirements for our illustrator (i.e. lines that we do not need reviewed).

To the successful bidder we will provide:
> Character Outlines for the 5 main characters to provide context
> the copy to be reviewed and edited (which is for book 1 of a series)

We would like someone to review the text and provide constructive feedback on the text (grammar, spelling, tone, etc). We are looking for concise feedback - and mainly looking for validation to trap any oversights and have an independent opinion on the text/story.

We are seeking a fast turnaround (24-48 hours).

thanks
Chris
