I am looking for a copy editor to review the grammer, punctuation, and homophone errors in two fiction manuscripts each about 200 pages each.

Job description:
I am not looking for:
* A deep editing or substantive edit
* A fact check review
* A rewrite

My project has the following requirements:
* 15 business day (3 week) turn around time. However, turn-around time can be discussed.
* Use Chicago Manual of Style or AP Style Manual. Note this is a work of fiction, so the copy editor should have experience handling literary fiction conventions.
* Focus on correct usage, finding typos, and especially identifying homophone errors.
* Entering edits in Microsoft Word with track changes.

Total word count:
110,000

Type of review:
Proofreading (a simple grammar and punctuation review)
