Hi,

I need some help on polishing up a sample chapter and book proposal about Las Vegas.

The text is grammatically correct but it could use more flair, better transitions between and inside paragraphs, a more coherent and engaging style, and more figurative language.

The book is meant not only for a specialist audience, but for those interested in architecture, Las Vegas, or American culture in general. I hope for the writing to be witty, creative, and lucid.

The total is about 22,000 words.

I have attached a document with the first two pages of the chapter for you to get an idea of the task.

If you are interested in this project, please show me a writing/editing sample.

Thank you!
