I'm looking for someone with good English and literary skills to do the content and copy edit for my inspirational/motivation book. The book has already been through a couple self editing phases. This is the final edit before the book will be published on Amazon in a few weeks. The book profiles four very different types of individuals (what I consider regular people and everyday heroes) who have pursued what matters to them and consequently made significant changes in the lives of others. The purpose of the book is to encourage others who have dreams, hopes and aspirations to “go for it” through telling their stories – successes, hurdles, etc. of these four, and of some of the people whose lives they’ve touched. Through the experiences and lessons of these four, I hope to counteract (or at least challenge) the adverse effects that just three minutes of negative morning news or “nay-saying” from others can have on optimism and productively moving forward. Ultimately, I want to inspire enough people to take action – to follow a dream - so that our collective belief in what’s possible will shift. As far as the editing goes, I’m on a pretty short deadline so I need someone who can work quickly and focus attention on this project over the next two weeks. I need the content and copy edits completed by March 1, 2016. The book is roughly 40,000 words (comprised of Intro, 4 profile sections with 4-6 chapters/subsections each), and roughly 135-150 pages (Word doc, 1.5 line space). I'm looking for someone with editing experience and with interest in this type of book. I'm working on this book with proven best sellers so this will be great exposure for you and your work. If you're interested in the project, submit a proposal with why you're interested and your price. Also, please include the phrase "purple cow" at the top of your bid. If you have any questions, just let me know!”
