Overview:

We've completed a technical gardening book and now looking for a professional editor and proof reader, with some layout skills, to complete the job.

The book has been written by a technical colleague. This is the second book we've published together, and we have more in development.

Her writing style, whilst technically correct, is mainly in passive English. To ensure it's an informative and enjoyable read, we need the grammar to be active, yet without losing the technical accuracy. You may need to do a little bit of research in some chapters to add interest to the text as it is a little dry at present. I will provide further details to the successful bidder.

The introduction also needs to be written. I will provide a PDF copy of our previous book to the successful bidder to provide guidance on our introduction, content and writing style.
