I am looking for professional editing services to finalise a non-fiction "How-To" book on Agile Digital Strategy. The title of the book is "Build the right thing" with Subtitle: "How to build high growth agile digital businesses customers love". The book provides the reader with a visual blueprint to work through to create an Agile digital strategy. The introduction chapter is attached.
The final manuscript is ready and it has already been through a professional developmental edit and fixes. I am looking for ;
> Copy and line editing to significantly make the book a joy to read taking care not to dilute the message. This is the most important task and you or your team should be highly skilled at this.
> Ensure the diagrams and their ideas flow seamlessly with the text. Some text around the diagrams needs to be updated to achieve this.
> Apply the style guide created by the developmental editor
> Proofread text and diagrams
> Once above is complete arrange a beta read and critique with at least 12 readers from the target audience.
> Arrange the secure distribution of the beta reading and collate feedback.
Critique audience can be found here. [login to view URL]
I will also post to my social media circle to find people from my network who can help with the critique
> Review the feedback and fix content (together with me) as required.
> Clean up and finalise to send for layout.
