Looking for an experienced writer and editor to finish writing and put the final, polishing touches on a non-fiction book about the real life experiences of a building administrator in a New York public school system. Currently, there is text typed electronically but there is also additional written text which needs to be typed and revised. All content needs to be edited and streamlined into a smooth non-fiction book that flows nicely and makes for an easy read. Conversations with the initial author will be required before work begins and periodically throughout the process for clarification purposes. The goal is for a final finished product of a non-fiction book that is well written, smooth, tells each chapter, as well as the bigger idea, clearly, and is entertaining for the reader.
