I'm about to publish a book and just want to make sure there are no glaring issues with it, like writing pray instead of prey or using a period instead of a comma. This is a 12,280 word story. Looking for fast turnaround. Basically I need someone to read the book and make a comment in the sidelines about any grammar-related issues. Don't worry about format or anything like that. Just the grammar. It's already been read over a couple times. You're the last set of eyes. Should take no more than an hour or two. Again, this is not in-depth though please don't skim because any issues that exist can't be seen by skimming.

I have written an e-book guiding home sellers on how to prepare and stage their home for sale! It is a book that goes room by room and I have included raw before and after photos of my own staging work after each relevant room chapter. I need to clean up the formatting, select and properly position the before after photos (adjust lighting, contrast, etc as much as possible to bring out the best in each photo), and produce a clean final draft of my book in whatever word processing or book editing format is best. My plan is to self-publish as an e-book and sell on Amazon but I would like to have the option of offering a printed book as well on Amazon. It is currently on Google docs. I would like the book to look and read very easily and stylishly and have an elegant visual impact.

A funny, entertaining, thought-provoking story about living overseas - be my partner in crime in making this pretty good story into a rockstar of a best seller! I'm looking for someone to turn my 24K word e-book into an easy and powerful read though: - shortening/revising confusing sentences - catching every grammatical and spelling error - making the tense structures consistent - cutting out redundant wording so the story is more crisp - make the wording more alive/vivid - restructuring sentences if necessary to make the story flow better (give better 'timing' of humor and poignancy) I'm writing many ebooks, and hope to find an extremely detailed and talented editor I can work with for many future projects together on. Please submit a recent writing/editing sample so I can get a sense of your style. To be fair to all applicants, only those who submit a sample will be considered. Hope to work together!

I would like you to proofread my research project paper for the university. It's a legal report in english on a case and is to be assessed under german law. The text consists: 10 Pages; 4095 words; 24528 spaces; I basically feel unsure in the legal high level expression and grammatic, not in the specific legal terminology (which differs from country and country I guess) To get a feeling on the text, here is a short example: "In constellations such as presented, the opposing view is stating that maintenance obligation are damages which entitle to compensation. As a result a reclaim would not necessarily impair the well-being of the child because the father has to perform in advance however ( 1612 III 1 BGB). To ensure the child's well-being the father has to defer the reclaim as long as the mother cares for the child. Thus the claim to compensation of maintenance obligations would exist but could not be enforced to the child's detriment. A view advocated in the legal litera...

I am looking for an author to write a guidebook of about 250 pages, including photos and in A5 format. The guidebook will become the annual yearbook for the Friends of the North Highland Way - see   [obscured]   There would be a picture on each page and it will include maps (which we will provide). I do have some pictures which I can give access to, so we don't need to worry too much about that. The book would be in English, published on Amazon or another self publishing package, in paperback and available digitally on Kindle as well. I would envisage a cover price of about 6.99. The author must be a good walker and used to the great outdoors... it gets pretty heavy weather in the far north, even in the summer sometimes! The route between John o Groats and Cape Wrath is about 180 miles, and there are sections which you could do using local transport. There are maps available if you become a Friend of the North Highland Way (cost 15). I propose a publishing agreement ...

Comanche is an historical novel - a western - of about 62,000 words. It is a story about the Indian Wars of 1864 to 1866. There is some violence, no profanity, no graphic sex. The MS, I think, is fairly clean, but I do need a good proofreader.

I'm looking for an alpha reader who can go through part of my second draft and give me feedback. - The book is about my experience of growing up in Japan. - The word count is about 36k. (The total count of the draft is 42k but you only have to read up to 36k.) - No editing required. - The file type is Word 2010 document. - Feedback should be given as Word comments, a short report, and Q&A through Elance messages. - Some interest in Japan would be necessary. - Please refer me to your sample work of similar projects. If you don't have any, just find some short text, paste it into a Word document and write feedback. [edit] This is not a editing job. The kind of feedback I need is: is it interesting overall? Which part is interesting and which part is not? Where I need to elaborate or where do I need to edit out? Is there better way or organising the text? etc.
