I have just finished writing a 70 pages e-book in English which needs to be edited. The book is about overcoming an autoimmune disease naturally by diet and lifestyle changes. I'm native Swedish speaker and at the moment the book sounds a bit Swinglish so some parts needs to be re-written sounding more professional. I'm looking for an editor with a passion for health and with a warm writing voice, preferably a woman. There are also parts in the book which has a lot of facts and medical terms which I would like to make more readable and digestible for the reader without removing the source of the content. I hope to have the book edited and finished by the end of August. I have written the book in Scrivener and it needs to be edited in Scrivener as well. I don't have a huge budget so there is a fixed price the amount of 0. Total word count: 28000 Type of review: All of the Above

The total word count is around 80,000 words, give or take.* I am in search of a native English speaker that enjoys reading science fiction romance novels to edit and proofread for me.

101,600 words. Comedy non-fiction, R-Rated, military memoir (written by a female). Needs a professional edit for both grammar and flow, although I've tried to get it as clean as possible so far! Also, my style contains some run-on sentences, made-up words, curse words, and pop culture slang. I write as if I'm talking with my closest best friends... If interested, please let me know! Thanks so much! Sonja Landis

My first novel is completed. I'm looking to self pub and promote or find an agent. Either way. My novel is good but I do think it needs another set of eyes on it to make it better and to catch things like continuity issues. Would like to have an editor who is willing to team up and help me go all the way with my potential. I have a sample of my work in a short story call, Snowman. This isn't what I typically write, just something that I was writing a few days ago. This isn't anywhere in my new novel...

Hi there, Do you have a passion for editing books? If so, this job is for you. I'm looking for an experienced book editor who is interested in working on fun book projects with a super cool guy. I enjoy the work I do helping authors give birth to their book ideas. If you are interested in helping take part in making these authors dreams come true then this job is for you.

NOTE: I'm looking for someone who is interested in working on multiple book offers and not just one as I have many authors I help self-publish. This is a great opportunity to get multiple gigs from one person.

I am looking for a copy editor and proofreader for my 10,000 word non-fiction book. In this first edit the job is to clean up the copy. Proofread the manuscript. Fix spelling and grammar. Remove passive voice. Feel free to alter sentence structure if you see a better way of conveying the idea. As you will be tracking changes, I can always revert if I need to go back to the original meaning. Go ahead with an aggressive edit. A 24-48 hour turnaround is preferred. One week is acceptable. This will be the first edit of the manuscript. When I write, I type fast and do not stop to fix anything. I just get the ideas out of my head. I typically go through a few drafts to get the document as I like it. At this level of first edit what I am asking for is copy editing. If, however, any general or higher level editing suggestions that appear to you, I appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

I need someone to go through my manuscript and pull out sources from the body of the text to create footnotes and endnotes. Most of the resources are based on web searches and websites so you must be familiar with how to properly cite a website. I believe it is Chicago Manual of Style, that is most commonly used for a Non-fiction book. I will also need a bibliography created. The book is 82,000 pages long, however, most of the sources are within the 1st 100 pages. The project is a Word doc.

The writing is hurried and often wordy but sturdy in information. I am after a big investor to the tune of over a billion dollars for a world wide new era - from the higher dimension. You must be good at writing and bring this to a tight narrative because people have already been impressed with the body of the project. Would you run a blog and other multimedia projects while I write. I can only pay about $3 an hour until I get an investor/s and then may double the pay. It's ongoing work. I would expect to take up two hours a day of your time for the regular editing, proof reading and internet posting work of this.
