The scope of task is to provide a technical edit of the manuscript so that the process enhances the quality of the book without changing the overall content. The outcome is an 8 x10 paperback with approximately150 pages.

I'm looking for a person who understands how to connect with a writer and polish a book project. I've worked with several good technical editors in the past. I want someone who understands the expectation of a published author. Editor will use Word track changes so that I can see the changes and make a good decision of changes. Editor will work with me until the editing is completed.

Here are the deliverables:
(a) Conduct technical editing.
(b) Provide revised manuscript to me.
(c) Provide any technical support during this contract work.

Attached is a sample of my book. I am looking for an experienced editor or a well-proven notice. Please provide examples of effort.

The time period is 1-2 weeks when awarded the work. Future work may result.
