As a first time author, I'm looking for someone who can help me out in the first stage and do a manuscript critique. However, if I can find the right person, I'd love to find someone who can take me through the whole editing process and on to help finding a publisher. I'm someone who did well in writing classes in college (25 years ago...), and I do have a blog that brings in a decent amount of readers. Honestly, though, my strength is in story telling, and I know the book is in need of a lot of editing. As a first time author, I'm told that my word count is high, so I'll need some help chopping. I also have a prologue, which I'm told is a hard sell as a first time author. Job description: I'd like to find someone who has experience or at least a deep interest in Women's fiction. The book follows six friends from the age of seventeen to forty. The book is humorous, dark, and true to life. The book has been written on Word. Total word count: 82,044 Type of review: All of the Above...

I have developed a new domain specific language called Frame that I have written a book on that I need reviewed, edited and prepared for publication on the web. The book is 172 pages long. I can be rather flexible about completion time but need to keep costs down. I am looking for someone who has a strong background in computer science and programming and also can assist, either directly or managing someone, to upgrade the graphics and visual presentation of the book. It is important that the editor absorb the material (which I hope is not hard) so as to help catch any errors in the coding samples as well. The delivery should be in MS Word format.
