I'm completing a book project and copyediting with 3 parts of the book introduction. First, I need "targeted" copyediting of the introduction. Second, the conclusion of the introduction likely requires modest editing (it appears to be too strident). Third, I'm looking for a copyeditor to format all of the endnote (Turabian/Chicago Manual of Style) in the introduction. The book is designed to be marketed (and so must be copyedited) to both a scholarly and general interest audience, so editors familiar with working with general and academic audiences are particularly helpful.
(I don't need the entire intro edited--though I do need all notes properly formatted--just small parts here and there)
For the book intro project for the "trade side" of a major university press, I would need 3 targeted things done:
1) Track Change Edits - I've made some changes and need some professional editing done of these track change portions.
2) Conclusion - The Concluding Paragraph needs to be (lightly) edited as well. My particular concern with the conclusion is Tone. It's too strident/ideological now, and I'd like it to be vivid yet perhaps a tad more tempered.
3) End Notes Formatting (Turabian) - My citations need to be uniformly formatted to conform with Turabian/Chicago Manual of Style.
While this is a one-time project, I write and publish fairly regularly--for both academic and wider audiences--and am very open to work consistently with you for an on-going project if an excellent job. (My partner also publishes frequently and would use your service regularly if impressed by your work on this project.)
