We have a final draft of our book and are ready to get moving on the next step of the project. We are looking for copy-editing, cover design, page layout, indexing, permissions (quotes) and preparation of LightningSource as well as Kindle and iBook formatted files.

We have a very tight timeline for delivery as we need to finish this next part of the project within 2-3 weeks. Following are some additional details:

216 pages (18,244 words)
24 quotes (treated as side-bars which will need layout work to make them more compelling)
15 illustrations (which may need to be re-created for clarity)
5 sections to the book (which will also need to be considered in the overall design)
Cover design (some kind of photo of the author leaping across something (the leadership gap from command and control to collaborative leadership))

We will print via Lightning Source and we also want both an iBook and Kindle version of the final product. We will need indexing created and added as well.
