Editing for Book Project


Job Description

I am looking for an editor for a non-fiction book project.

The book deals in the realm of business, personal leadership, education, competition, work life and management.

The primary target readership is young adults aged between 16 to 26
The secondary readership would be managers and educators
The 3rd readership market would be young parents.

The targeted word count is approximately 62,000 words.

I am seeking an editor who is able to add polish to the words and sharpen the clarity of the ideas delivered through the book.

My preference is for someone with experience in editing books targeting a similar demographic and have a decent grasp of issues and ideas in an asian context.

This is currently a self-funded project on a tight budget. I do believe that the ideas contained within the book will be leading edge and fundamentally change the way we look at work, learning, life and competition in the near future. If such a project interests you, please let me know your quotation and what you can offer as an editor.
