I’m looking for someone with excellent English & literary skills to edit the content and copy edit my book. Native English is a must.
My book “Startup Evolution Curve: from idea to profitable and scalable business” is a marketing manual for startups that I’ve wrote based on the research of more than 1.400 startups worldwide (here is a Linkedin post to one of the updates about the research [url removed, login to view]). I have a Ph.D. degree in economics and more than 10 years of experience in international marketing. This is a serious book (not another one “get rich quick”), but I want it to be easy and pleasant to ready.
The book will be ~100.000 words and 6 chapters (1 intro + 5 stages of the Startup Evolution Curve methodology). At the moment I have over 92.000 words and already working on the last chapter (plan to finish it till 28th December). The book will be a couple self-editing phases before I give it to you for the final edit.
I’m on a pretty short deadline, so I need someone who can work quickly and focus attention on this project over the next 2 weeks after the New Year celebration. I need the content and copy edits completed by 21st January.
I’m looking for someone with editing experience and with interest in this type of book.
I will gladly put your name and even a link in Kindle edition as an editor/proof-reader of the book. So this will be a great exposure for you as a freelancer. I’m a marketer with more than 15.000 followers on Linkedin ([url removed, login to view]) and I have a plan how to make this book popular. More than 1.000 startups all over the world are already waiting for the release of the book. There are nearly 20 thought leaders who agreed to be beta readers of this book and provide a testimonial. Here is a landing page [url removed, login to view] for pre-launch list building. You will definitely get really good advertising with this book! Especially that I’m not a native English speaker and everybody is asking who will be proof-reading and editing the book. And that might be you!
If you’re interested in the project, submit a proposal with why you’re interested and your price. Please, also include the phrase ”shining star” at the top of your bid, that I could know you’ve read my project description carefully.
If you have any questions, just let me know!
