I'm looking for someone to help edit my first novel. It's travel fiction inspired by a true story. The word length is approx 118k. I've had a couple of runs at editing for sticky sentences and typos but I would appreciate any ideas on character development and continuity. I also appreciate that the novel is a little too long. I'm hoping to get the word count down to 100k, but if you could give me some ideas on cuts to make, that would also be greatly appreciated. I'm hoping to self-publish. Best regards, Geoff Hindmarsh

I am looking to make a ebook about seduction and I need somebody to help me write and edit it.Althought I have experience in meeting girls, I do not have experience in writing books. It is a taboo subject and I plan on covering a niche market. It would basically be a 'how to guide' with theory, and practical steps. Please reply if you are comfortable with this topic. Only serious inquiries.

Hi there Your job is to "lightly" edit 96 typed pages (11 chapters) of a sport psychology manual into a more conversational tone. I want to use the end product to create an audio recording for young athletes (12-15yrs) - so the language has to be simple and conversational. At the moment the language in the manual is a little stiff and possibly incomprehensible for the junior athlete e.g. "Most athletes can describe instances where a failure to prepare or pay attention to one detail has produced a loss, when a win was possible. You will reduce the number of such occurrences by being meticulous in the way you interpret matters and events in your sport." Ideally the edited version of this might read something like... "Most athletes can describe (instances) times where a failure to prepare or pay attention to one detail has produced a loss, when a win was possible. You (will reduce the number of such occurrences) can stop this by (being meticulous) taking ...

Our book, Hacking Education: 9 Quick Fixes for Every School, will be ready by June 15. It is written by two prolific, published authors, both with English teaching backgrounds. The manuscript will be very clean but needs fresh eyes to ensure accuracy and cohesion. We will supply a Word Doc, containing the entire manuscript (a TOC, introduction and nine chapters, all following the same formula). The final manuscript will be 22,000-25,000 words. This is a pre-production manuscript. Because this book is pre-edited, we assume this will be a very easy edit, requiring no more than 8-12 hours. This is the first book in an ongoing series, so there is an opportunity for future work. An education, edtech and/or mobile learning background is helpful, but not required.

Hi, Aaron - we met a while back on BookRix when you submitted "Stories About the Rain" for a contest. Because you're such a polished, adept writer, I would like to hire you to help me edit/proof my latest book. I've edited and re-read the thing until my eyes automatically cross when I open the document, and I need an objective, intelligent individual to give it a final read-through, make editing suggestions, look for inconsistencies, all that. I've had some awful experiences with so-called editors who wanted to charge me price of a small country but who couldn't spell, made several grammatical errors, and basically lied about having read the entire sample. You, on the other hand, I trust. I didn't know you were doing this sort of thing, but earlier today one of our new members asked for reading suggestions, so I recommended your work, which got me wondering how you were, which in turn made me think I should Google your name and see what came up. This Elance thing did, so......

I will pay $1.75/page We can work in packages of 25 I have a website with 111 pages that needs to be done I also have multiple websites that collectively have more than 250 pages and I have about 200 more coming soon. Specific Project I need someone who is able to read through the articles and enhance the writing so it is SEO. For example look at this page:   [obscured]  /best-amazon-instant-tv-shows/ every word in the title matters...so Best Amazon Instant TV Shows....instead of writing "television" or "do you like tv" you always have to use "tv shows" that is editing for SEO So the first sentence on this page: Is your favorite tv show on its season break? Would be this: Amazon Instant has the best tv shows even when your favorite is on break. DOes that make sense? Can you understand the logic behind my change? See the attached on how I did edits for another page on the same web page. In addition to editing existing cont...

I am currently writing a book that specifically deals with some of the ways we are sideswiped in life by good and bad surprises. The bulk of the book deals with lessons I have learned in some of my life's unexpected twists and turns, specifically in losing my wife in a car accident in 2001. The tone is very conversational, light hearted in one moment and perhaps even dark in another. It is raw with little varnish without being vulgar, but still carries intelligent thought and musings. I am currently about halfway through writing and would like to be able to submit a section/chapter at a time if possible. I am bent on having a complete manuscript by mid-August.
