Description

Experience Level: Expert
Hello,

I have a novel which has been accepted for publication, but it needs some love. I need someone to read it, correcting all errors as they go, and also check for me using the wrong names for characters halfway through, basic continuity errors and other stupid mistakes that make you cringe when you read a published book!

The worst thing about this is the timescales - I need a mega-quick turnaround so I can send it off to the publishers asap.

I'm looking for someone who is a reader first, and a proofreader second; the kind of person that gets upset when they go to a restaurant and get annoyed with missprints on the menu! The book is written well, but it needs someone to go at it holistically and read it in one or two sittings, feel free to take some initiative with suggesting things I have done wrong, and modify a word doc, tracking changes as they go so i can just whizz through the completed work.

I really hope this is possible from someone. There will be more work available for someone great as I have four more novels waiting to go. Price is also important to me - sorry, guys. I'm a contractor on here myself and I know that's an annoying way to make a selection.

Thank you

Jen
