Hello, I am looking for an editor for a non-fiction book on leadership which I am planning to self-publish this summer. I have already heavily edited this book myself. So, my hope is that this monster does not need too much more attention. Nevertheless, it would be great to hire a professional editor to go through the final copy (mostly for stylistic editing--flow, rhythm, transitions, consistent tense, clarifying meaning and possibly the occasional grammatical error). The book is approximately 75,000 words. However, I would strongly prefer to know your per page rate (with a firm 250 words per page) so that we can be sure to stay within budget. We will need to do a trial run (maybe the first 1,000 to 3,000 words) to see if we are a good fit for each other. If that sounds agreeable, please let me know your per page rate and we can go from there. Ideally, I'm looking for someone that loves words and thinks that it is just as important for non-fiction books to be filled with great stories and anecdotes, along with words, sentences and paragraphs that are just as pleasing to the ear as they are to the brain.
