I'm looking to have someone edit a mini book that I just wrote. Here are the specs:
1. Word count: 6,182 (that's the entire book: cover, table of contents, author bio, order form, legal warning, and copy)
2. Copy pages: 40 ( a lot of pages have a 1-sentence quotation and/or image)
3. Book dimensions: 9x6
Skills: editing, english grammar, english proofreading
“This is my first time working with Jill. It most definitely will not be my last. Jill is now my go-to person for editing.
Jill's expert editing not only cleaned and tightened things up, her contribution of words, sentences, and re-positioning, led to a more logical flow and a better product..
Jill is very skilled at not over editing, where it becomes her product.. She is able to quickly grasp the author's style and tone, and while making the required edit's, allows the authors authentic voice to come through and be heard.
Jill also keeps her promises, which is the exception these days. She told me she would work on the project over the weekend and she delivered it Sunday morning.
If you're looking for truly outstanding editing, save yourself the time (which you probably don't have a lot of these days) of reviewing all your Elance responses, and hire Jill.
