I want somebody to edit/polish my autobiography to ensure that the reader does not lose interest. My current goal is to distribute it to friends and relatives. My children like the content as it involves severe hardships, remarkable successes, lessons learned and lot of other information of interest to them. What is typical hourly rate for this type of work and what is your best guess for total editing cost? How do I find a person to do this job?
