I have a 140,000 word book which I have written. I need to have it edited so I can prepare to have it printed. The punctuation is the worst part, mostly the quotation marks for characters speaking.

Its currently broken down into sections and not chapters, but I can do that. I'm on a budget and if I have to do it myself I can.

WARNING: The book is fictional, about a post apocalyptic event with firearms and violence. If you can't hang with that don't bother bidding.

American English preferred.
