We are publishing the biography of a minister whose civil rights participation is legendary. We have his draft of 201 pages and now want it edited for publication as a trade paperback.
Using track changes in Word, editing focus should be of course on spelling, grammar and punctuation, and then focus on diction and rewording of awkward sentences, smooth transitions, tone, and clarity of idea.
Each new chapter should begin on a separate page, and each paragraph should be indented, with no extra space after punctuation nor after each paragraph. Pagination is only necessary for location since the final version will be 5.5 X 8.5 in pdf format. No headers are necessary.
A sample chapter is attached.
Please note that I am the publisher, not the author or subject.
Skills: grammar, pdf
