Hi, I am an illustrator who has toiled in the ranks of work-a-day cartoonist for over 15 years and am now attempting to launch not one, but multiple children's books. I'm good at illustration but I need someone to review the writing. I'm not attempting to submit manuscripts, I'm starting a company. I have far too many ideas and too little time to trudge through that process. So yeah, there it is. I'm looking for a proofreader for a children's book and liked your experience and expertise. I've never hired through here before so feel free to lead me through. Thanks.

I need a Spanish native speaker translator to proofread the text of this short Spanish language children's story. The text is already translated into Spanish. 2578 Words. The person selected will do the following: -Proofreading: punctuation, look for grammar mistakes and sentence structure. The story needs to be ready for publishing. -Simple edits to make sure the story doesn't 'sound' translated. You don't need to do content editing or change the story, since it's already published in English. IT'S IMPORTANT TO BE A NATIVE SPANISH SPEAKER AND TO HAVE EXPERIENCE IN CHILDREN'S WRITING. THANKS!

If it works, there will be more work. Word document with track changes preferred method. Thanks in anticipation.

I'm interested in writing a children's book with the main character being my Portuguese Water Dog, named Ace. I know nothing about writing children's books but have had good success with hiring freelancers on Elance. The idea is to use a character called Amazing Ace, who is based on a real dog, to learn and teach new skills and attitudes to children through his activities as a working water dog. An idea is to use some of Amazing Ace's crazy and quirky characteristics to show it's OK to be a bit different and that every child is special. Of course I'm 100% open to better ideas. I can also envision an ibooks version with video clips of Amazing Ace working and swimming, to show the type of fun things he does in his competitions. If this idea works, it could turn into a series of books. I guess the target audience is children ages 5-9. The person hired for this job will receive writing credit. I'm not sure how to price out this project, so I left it for later, but I'm ha...
