Book editing help requested

I am a Dallas author, historical researcher, and lecturer seeking a graduate English student to perform editing and bibliography and footnote formatting for my latest book on the Historical Jesus. I have published articles on this and related topics in the journal Religion and the Journal of Ecumenical Studies. Also, I have presented lectures on the Historical Jesus at the University of Texas at Austin and North Texas University.

This most interesting, unique book is about 150 pages in length and is in final manuscript form. It looks at the Historical Jesus from the point of view of the Ancient Jewish Mystical Tradition, The Kabbalah.

Some of my other business oriented books can be found on Amazon: Inclusive Capitalism, What It Looks Like in Practice and The Quick Guide to Employee Motivation.

I am offering $12/hour for the work. Students interested in this opportunity can reach me at 972-412-0090 or scottco@aimail.net. I would be pleased to meet with interested applicants at your University.

I thank you and look forward to hearing from you regarding whether you think University of Texas English grad students might be interested in doing this assignment. If you think a job posting describing this job would be appropriate, let me know, and I will provide same.

Best regards.
