I am in need of a tech writer to review and perform surgery on my writing and grammer. :) I have written about a 10 page document explaining how popups work, why advertisers use them, etc. This is going to be a free download off of our website ( ). I would like something done in either Word (my current choice) or publisher so I can easily go out to print if we later decide to print as a small pamphlet.
Would like someone with tech writing background to help flush out details in some areas as well. I have already included screen grabs of some things, but more will be needed.
If you could also provide a "cover" for the ebook that would be a bonus to me as I do not make graphics.

I will send current work in progress to serious bidders for further evaluation. You will have a chance to edit your bid before I accept.

1) Complete document in eletronic format (Word or Publisher).

2) I will perform conversion to PDF.

3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.

Microsoft Word XP, or Publisher 2002.

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Apr 18, 2003 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.

Hi Jason,

My name is Michael Sharp and I`m a freelance developer living in Greece (US Citizen). I`m also an English teacher (EFL) and have worked on a number of documentation projects through RAC. I`ve also written a number of articles for RAC (look in the Articles for Buyers and Articles for Coders sections in the left margin of the RAC site), which should help you to get a sense of my writing style.

I can edit this for you using MS Word; I`ll correct the grammar, spelling and vocabulary errors and provide “suggested” text for any sections that might benefit from my technical writing background.

Your deadline does not present any difficulties for me - however, I would appreciate the chance to review the document to get some idea of the scope of work involved. Having said that, my initial bid most likely will not be over $100 from what you`ve described so far.

Good luck on your project and thank you for using Rent A Coder!

Best Regards,

Michael E. Sharp
Freelance Solutions Developer

P.S. - If you have any questions related to my bid or your project`s design, please don`t hesitate to contact me via RAC at any time and I`ll do my absolute best to provide an immediate response
