Highly experienced editor and proofreader needed for a children's book. The manuscript is 4500 words long. Very tight deadlines. Job needs to be performed from WEDNESDAY 27th JUNE 22:00 GMT to SATURDAY 30th JUNE 9:00 AM GMT. This is a tight and restrictive timeframe so please only apply if you can absolutely commit to and meet this deadline. The book is written by an 8 year old girl so the editing and suggested changes/improvements need to be in line with the style of the 8 year old author. More instructions on this will be given to the successful applicant. Genre is like Rainbow Magic Fairy books. Manuscript is in MS Word. Corrections/suggestions to be made using MS Word's 'Mark up' feature so the author can accept or reject on a line by line basis. US$300 Fixed Price and deadline.
