I need to produce a 50 page manuscript for a legal book on criminal law.
I need someone to interview/speak with me on the phone (after I hire you) and then write the pages using my ideas and the interview. I have the detailed chapter outline prepared that we will follow. I am an expert in this area of the law and have taught numerous classes on this subject and tried dozens of jury trials, but I am struggling to get the right tone and prose.

The writing must be in my tone and use my ideas. I need the provider to take my ideas and turn them into well written paragraphs.

This is for an academic book that will be published.
This does not involve legal citation editing.

Provider must have experience writing and editing professional/ academic manuscripts.
Professional writing/editing experience or a JD is required.

This job includes:
1) Phone interviews (after you are hired)
2) Writing the 50 pages based on the interview

The final deadline for the 50 pages is January 2, 2012.
