I am the author of The Happy Mum Handbook and I want to promote my book to the USA in hardcopy and Ebook format.

I need someone to edit my book so that anytime the word Mum appears, it needs to be changed to Mom.

Also, I need you to read through the entire 297 pages to check for any other obvious ways to americanise it, such as any Aussie slang or references that need to be made clearer or changed to suit an American Audience.

I only want a born, raised and current resident of USA to respond to this job, and it would be preferrable if you were a mother or parent.

In terms of format, I will provide you with the pdf of the book for you to change, and the cover. I need you to change the cover from Mum to Mom and make it print ready. I also need you to make the internal pages print read too.
