    It's time to move on to the editing and proofing of the cookbook submissions. I need a few helpers and ask that you only volunteer if you have time to dedicate to the project, if you have good grammar skills in written word, and are able to follow precise directions on how things are to be done. I know this sounds snotty and nit picky but in this case we must be extremely careful and comb through all submissions with a fine tooth comb. Once this book goes to the publisher there is no way to correct errors. It will be a done deal at that time.

    I need 10 people to proof read and correct minor typos in every recipe submitted for the cookbook project.

    I need 5 people to work as editors checking and rechecking every recipe for the final proof in the cookbook project.

    Once the slots are filled I will PM each of you with the information needed to access typensave for editing permissions.​

    I can do either one, whichever you need filled


    BTW, you missed the word 'no' in your post, how's that for proofreading? [​IMG]

    Although I am new to the forum, if you need assistance, I can help.

    I'd like to try the individual recipes, for time reasons.
