I am looking for a mix of experience and value


I have a 43 page book handwritten on paper that is scanned.  Written in pencil.  Need someone to type up the entire book.  43 pages are handwritten on letter size.  Type up in a google doc and then creatively prepare the book for printing using Quark or adobe publisher.  Some program to layout the pages and insert illustrations.  Need you to read the book and determine the best way to split up the pages.  Take this book to the next level to finish it.  Assist the writer in getting it from its current form to an actual book that can be printed professionally.  After layout is finished which should include reserved space for illustrations.  Need your help and you can work with writer on deciding that.  But I think better to start this conversation after it is typed up and got something to review.  Then we should list out the different illustrations needed for the book.  We will look to hire an artist to make the illustrations in a similar style of the one on the first page.  Once we get the illustrations from the artist need you to put into the book to finish the full layout and prepare the file to send to a printer.  This a children's book about a cat with illustrations.  If you can provide any examples of layout work you have done would be great.  Also any experience with children books.  This book was written by my mom and she never wrote a book before but she has this story she was working on for like 10 years.  But she has no computer experience and want to get her help to finish it.  If you are an illustrator as well, then we can consider you for the illustrations maybe.  The illustration style desired is kinda hippy, colorful, mysterious.
