I have a manuscript, 300+ pages, 12 pt., double-spaced. Pretty clean, but looking for someone to check for punctuation, grammar, typos, etc.
------------------------------------------
Added 12 FEB 2013, 9:45 AM EST
When I remove the blank pages between chapters, it's actually more like 260-270 pages. To be more accurate, it's a little shy of 91,000 words.
