This is an unusual project. We're compiling scriptures (not the bible - Mormon scriptures) for publishing. If you aren't comfortable with such a project, please don't hesitate to reject the proposal. The 3 books do not need editing. They are each a Word doc and will need the following formatting changes:
-Verse numbers need to be changed from black to deep red. Chapters are in paragraph format and verse numbers are subscript. I have a group ready to do the changes, but if you can write a macros to accomplish the same thing, that would be preferred.
-Footnotes in the largest book became indented at some point and need to be returned to left-justified. There are approx 500 footnotes.
-We need wide outside margins (about 1.5 inches) and narrow gutter margins (about .5 inches).
-I'd like some help determining the best page size for the final publication - I'm considering 5x7. All 3 books will be combined into a single volume. Currently the word docs are written in 8 pt, Times New Roman with 1.25 line spacing and are approx 370/200/50 pages respectively. Formatting will obviously change that. When printed, the text needs to present as 8 pt Times New Roman with 1.25 line spacing.
-Publisher specs are fairly easy to meet and will be provided. There are 3 illustrations in one of the books.
Since I'm a novice at this I'm not sure what other information is necessary for you to give us a ballpark quote. If you are interested, please provide whatever other details you require for a quote.
