I need someone to

1) write a introduction

so read the story, write a introduction that summarizes the characters and the book

2) I had an editor look over my work and need to patch up simply details such as a strong ending and suggestions. I attached the PDF with his comment and needs to be revised in the original.

3) edit and proofread grammar + spelling mistakes

note: I need this done ASAP such as within one day
