Immediately after hiring
I need an awesome editor to take my work to the next level.
I finished my manuscript, 65, 500 words, and need an excellent editor. It will be under the non-fiction self-improvement genre. Except I want to revolutionize the industry, which can often stodgy and disappointing.
I'm looking for someone that has:
Windows 2003 or higher
Have access to the internet
MUST be a native English speaker
Worked on non-fiction before
Please send a link to your writing samples, website as well as your recent work. Published work is even better.
Your writing and editing style should be professional, yet conversational. Like Google.
Above all, I would like to find an editor that is fearless and innovative. With that said, this means everything to me and this is my dream.
Questions to answer if this sounds like the project for you:
What is the difference between they're, there and their?
Do you think the self-help industry can be reinvented? If so how?
How soon can you start?
Are you easily reachable?
Do you set up weekly, monthly meetings with clients?
How long do you think editing my work will take?
How long does your average edit take for a manuscript this size?
How many other projects are you currently working on?
Would you be opposed to signing a NDA before we started to protect both of us?
I have a statement of work if we decide to do business, would you have one as well?
What is your philosophy on editing?
What would you be doing if you were not an editor?
Thank you for you thoughtful responses and hopefully we can work together soon.
