I am looking for a reliable and detail-oriented editor with an excellent understanding of English grammar and the ability to recognize and correct awkward or stilted sentences, as well as to highlight redundant statements and statements that are so vague as to be unhelpful. I have an 8,000 word ebook that requires a thorough going-over. Payment is $40. Elance escrow will be used for all payments; you will be responsible for Elance fees. Please bid $5 for a test job (I will give you a section of an ebook to edit, to demonstrate your skills). Communication is very important to me, and regular status updates will be expected. Turnaround time is also important. I would need you to deliver the edited manuscript within 3 days of receiving it. If you meet our qualifications and can edit non-fiction ebooks on deadline, we would like to add you to our team and send you work on a semi-regular basis. **If you are not committed to doing this long term, please do not bid. Please put the ...

I'm a freelance copywriter looking for an experienced proof reader and editor who can look over my work and provide a "second pair of eyes". Need you to have great grammar and English, able to correct all the mistakes I make! As well as general proof reading it would be great if you could look at documents with a critical eye and provide feedback on structure, flow, etc. The type of material I need proof read/edited is work I do for clients, such as: -- Blog/magazine articles -- Website copy (e.g. home page, about us page, service/product pages, etc.) -- Press releases -- Brochures and fliers -- Video/audio scripts -- Ebooks/guides So it's mostly short stuff of around 1-3 pages at a time. Ideally I'd send you several pieces at a time each week, but occasionally there might be the need to have something turned around urgently (if possible). Communication would ideally occur via Skype/email and/or some project management software for larger projects or times when there wa...

In search of an editor, mentor and coach for my first novel. I've wanted to write it for several years and now the opportunity is before me. I have written several chapters, have a complete storyline, along with the characters, (not completely defined) the beginning and the ending. I have all the emotions and the passion for my story, but need someone to put it into words, where the reader will be able to experience the same emotions as it is written for, and I need you to edit, create and recommend with the same passion. This is a story that will touch many people's lives, thanks to today's social media. A story that many people can relate to today. I have such a passion for the work, that I can see it evolving into a movie. I've written poems, and short stories, just for fun and family. Nothing has been published but would love to extend that part of my work as well. I need someone with experience in determining the best publishing format? Traditional, eBook, etc.. I...

UPDATE: Since this is the first time I have used Elance I am afraid I was not clear enough. So this is an update to the job I require. LET ME BE CLEAR: I am not looking for developmental editing--that is, an analysis of plot, point of view, characterization, pacing, structure, etc. I am not looking for a critique or evaluation of the book. I prefer to let readers decide for themselves. If they hate it, so be it. I don't believe in joining writer's groups. If I'm talentless, that is on me. I'm a big boy and can take it if no one likes the book. I don't have to get everyone to like it. I only need one out of fifty to like it. So I'm looking for a copy edit. Please handle any typos, grammar, redundancies, and provide better and clearer wording. I have had several people already read the book and have gotten rid of many typos, redundancies, and grammar mistakes already. But I would like perfection in this area. Nothing is more annoying to me than seeing typos and bad grammar in a finished ...

I have a 34,000 word manuscript (60 pages, single spaced) against Naturalism (i.e. atheistic Darwinism) from a Christian perspective that I want to turn into an ebook. It has already been edited by 6 elancers, and 11 people in total, plus I have two degrees in literature, so I promise you that it is already very polished. As far as academic writing goes, it's easy editing. I just need a couple of people to go through it, to find the last few typos, grammatical issues, inconsistent footnotes, incorrect word usage, etc., to help me embarrass myself as little as possible. I will provide both a pdf and an open office document, so that you can use either the pdf "sticky note" function, or the open office comment function. Upon completion of the assignment, I will add a special thanks to you in the preface of the work.
