I have just completed a non-fiction book and need help to prepare it for
publication. The book, Discovering Your Mentoring Mosaic, A Guide for
Understanding and Managing Your Mentoring, is based is on twenty years of
mentoring research. I want the book to be informal in tone and accessible to
the reader, and I¹m told that my style achieves that.

The book is now ready to go to the next step; I¹ve contracted with
Booklocker.com for POD publishing, but I urgently need professional help at
the copy editing/formatting end to turn out an attractive, well-structured
product.

These are the statistics and my needs as best I understand them:

· Size of the mms: word count is approx 132,000

· The book needs copy editing

· There are some text boxes and columns that will need to be reconfigured to fit the margin requirements; I need someone with the skills to make these changes, or to
advise me

· My formatting has been inconsistent. Much of the ms is based on case
histories or examples, so sometimes I¹ve used bullets or sub-paragraphs or
boxes to position them on the page. I am not wedded to any particular
practice and I¹m very aware I need professional help to turn this into an
attractive, readable book

Is this something that interests you, please contact me at the email below with your rates and resume.
