I have a 154 page document (story) I want to turn into a book. I need it final edited. Specifically, I need the text edited / corrected for:

- grammar
- spelling
- punctuation
- word choice
- story flow

and whatever else is typically done when editing a book. Most of the text was written by a non-native English speaker and therefore needs corrections in various places. If you'd like to preview a copy of the document, I can provide that before you accept the offer.
