Non-fiction book needs good edit!


Hello,

I have a non-ficition book finished and I am looking for someone to edit my manuscript. The book is called A Breeze of Whispers and is a book of poetry and lyrics that I have written. With each poem or lyric I have include a story which tells how I got the idea, or what inspired me to write the poem or lyric. I must say the book is rather long about 330 so I really need someone who is devoted to the editing process.

Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing to help me out.

~Cali~

(1)A book of poems and lyrics is really fiction rather than non-fiction, even if they are accompanied by true stories of how they were inspired.

(2)If you want a genuinely professional edit of a 330-page manuscript, you should expect to pay for it because it will involve many hours of work.

I would like to get my book professionally edited but like some writers I just don't have the finances to do so. That is why I posted a request on here in hopes another writer would be willing to help me out.
