One of my books, Confessions of a New Mother, has been published since 2006. I am currently transitioning it away from the publisher and want to do a re-edit to tighten it up. This job shouldn't take a long time, but I am looking for some honest input and a great eye for correction to make it flow better where needed. In print the book is 86 pages long. After corrections and a fresh look at it, I may try to get it over 100 pages as a 2nd edition. So the timetable may or may not extend, and I am certainly willing to pay as we go. It is currently on Amazon. You can look it up by the book name or my name, Jackie Malena or ISBN 1425930832. The project wouldn't start for a few weeks but hope to be completed by first of October. Please be patient and only apply if this works within your timeline. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
