I have written a short children's book for my kids that I would like to have edited/improved by someone with Professional Literary, Editing and Publishing Experience - Preferably with Children's Books.

The Book is short, less than 500 words or so and 12 pages. It is a highly visual, age appropriate, scary story (the kind you would tell around a camp fire) intended to be read to kids between 6-10 years old. The images and page layouts are done and I love them. The story/copy/text though, is a little choppy and rough. That's what I need help with so that it flows better, and is more enjoyable to read and hear, the way a professionally written children story might be.

I'm sure you can tell by now that I'm not a writer =)

The Job:
• Edit the story
• Make creative improvements/enhancements/suggestions to the story
• Layout the final pages

Qualifications:
• Professional Editing Experience
• Publishing Experience
• Strong Creative Writer
• Able to take a good existing story and ...
