I have a leadeship book which is part written and part dictated /trasnscribed from a recording of a talk.
The trasnscribed part needs significant editing in grammar, content and style. It reads badly!
I need an editor who can keep my style but also make it read professionally
It also needs to be in Amercian english.
I have had an editor already from elance, who changed commas etc. I need a "proper" book editor who doesn't mind rewriting sentences/paragraphs, deleting repititon and making a great copy which still looks and reads like my style.
If this is you please bid for 3 chapters initially approx 30pages A4 12pt font
This book need to be ready to go to a publisher!
