Proofreader needed (Portland)

compensation: mostly voluntary, compensation if the anthology is successful
marc1seed@yahoo.com

Next week I hope to upload an ebook on Smashwords.com "Alternative Economics: Reversing Stagnation." The 138-page anthology will have translated articles by Austrian, Swiss, Polish and German critical economists. A picture of FDR will be on the cover so many people will be attracted.

The second book is a 45-page study "Myths of the Economy" by the Austrian community beigewum.at. State myths, labor myths, business myths and social myths (e.g. tax competition, evil regulation) are explained. This study really cries out for editing.

Editing and proofreading could help the readability. Sometimes changing a word or eliminating a sentence or paragraph can make all the difference.
If the anthology is successful, I'd want to give you a fair compensation.
Please send me your email so I can send the Word document. Thanks, Marc

Fair compensation would be a percentage of the profits, should there be any? Did you have any idea what percentage? I'm good at proofreading, but it is a time consuming task, especially for something book length.

Fair compensation would be around 10% of the profits.

The study "Myths of the Economy" is 45 pages and really needs proofreading. I'd be happy to send it to you and you could see if it's a viable project. Thanks! Knowledge of German and/or economic theory would probably be helpful.

You're not willing to pay even minimum wage?
