I have written a nonfiction memoir about my life as an alleged "government deviant". I am looking for someone to edit it and provide feedback on my style and writing weaknesses. How many hours would you quote to edit a book of this length? It's a simple Word document. I suspect we would start with a smaller project--perhaps 5,000 words or so to determine if we work well together.

Thanks!!

Laura
