I am looking for an experienced professional editor to review a non-fiction book of about 70 pages (1.5 line spacing). The book contains many references so I need someone who has experience with quoting and reference format/end note tables. No offense to anyone but I need an American person (to secure a certain education and writing expertise) so please don't waste your time contacting me if you are not American (or an English expert).

I need someone who can:
1) provide me with constructive honest feedback regarding grammar, spelling (whatever spell check did not catch) and sentence format/style.

3) be open-minded regarding the content of the book
4) Stick to a quick turn around time without sacrificing quality of work. I am looking for no longer than 2-weeks for a turn around time
5) Be flexible enough and who communicates with me on a regular basis during the assignment, asking questions and not making assumptions.
