I'm looking for someone to proofread my new novel, which is currently 146,000 words.
I've just finished the eleventh draft and have cut and edited it substantially since its inception. It was originally 215,000 words. I have worked with a very talented editor and it the manuscript is for the most part now tight and polished. Since this book is being self-published, the purpose of this proofreading is one final check to ensure accuracy and eliminate any typos, errors, and incorrect/missing punctuation. Also to identify any discrepancies in plot, character, and setting that we have missed. And then finally to eliminate anything repetitive that disrupts the flow.
I would like to have you proofread a few sample pages. Ideally, I'm seeking someone who is a fan of thriller/romance/contemporary fiction novels; someone who doesn't think all adverbs are suspect.
Thank you in advance for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.
