Hi Julia,

I came across your profile as I was searching for someone to perform a final proofread of my book. I hired an editor from Elance about a month ago, and he did a fantastic job, but I need someone to look at the manuscript one more time to catch anything that we both missed. I really don't anticipate there being many issues, but I want the best looking at it. The book is approximately 55,000 words.

My only question is if you have experience in editing/proofreading full books, as opposed to articles and other shorter pieces.

If you are interested in this project, I am going to need it done very quickly. I would be able to send it to you by end of day October 15, and ideally would need the proofread completed by the end of day that Friday (October 19).

Is this realistic for your schedule? If so, what do you anticipate the cost to be? (Don't worry about the hours/rate that I'm listing. I just have to put something to make the job go through).
