I have a ~180 book and small report I am writing from source material I've scanned in. I already have my introduction and 60 pages written. Since I have so many other things to do, I'd like to hire someone to finish writing the remaining pages.
What you would be doing is taking my scanned source material and RE-writing it, so that it does not look anything like the original, yet still gives the same helpful information - but of course you should leave out or edit any details that date the material (such as references to the early 90's) or some bits I can tell you about that are no longer true.
Then you'll take this re-written material and combine it with what I already have to form the complete book. I'll show you what I already have done so that you can match it's personality, formatting and style. Its very important you do this.
Attached to this bid request is a zip file of a sample of my scanned source material. The formatting is a little ugly, but that can easily be changed so you can read it more clearly. Looking at this will give you a good idea of the kind of material you'd be re-writing from.
If you want to see what I already have done so you can see the style and personalty, then please contact me directly.
When finished, the book might be around 180 pages (maybe less) and the report is around 30 - HOWEVER, none of the report needs to be re-written, only re-formatted from the original source material and checked for spelling and formatting errors. So putting the report together will be much easier.
I'm looking for a good writer to help me in the future so if I can find someone good for this, I'll want to hire you more for other things.
