I require US native, an experienced copy editor to review a book for spelling, grammar, subject/verb agreement, typographical errors, and word choice. Any other mechanical deficiencies all need to be noted. Consistency, clarity and wordiness need to be considered. Any problems with flow and transitions need to be noted and suggestions made.

Book Description

This is a 4,600 word portion of the larger book about Exercise.

Application process

This is not a large job, but I do expect a certain habit of thoroughness from an editor. The effort you exhibit in the application will be assumed an indication of your performance level. Price is important, but lowest bidder is not the primary factor.
The best applicant, within my budget, will be awarded the work.

Required Skills and Working Process

The book will be delivered to you in Microsoft Word (.doc) file format.

Payment

Payment will be made through the Elance Escrow Account system.
