Hi

We need a rush job of editing a book manuscript, roughly 40,000 words, which needs to be done in only a couple of days. Basically, we need the following three things.

Correcting spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, and word usage while preserving the meaning and voice of the original text (THIS IS PRIORITY 1)
Reviewing overall clarity & assuring proper sequence of content (i.e. readability & flow of information)
Assuring consistent style and format, and typesetting specifications

Please be in touch if you have the flexibility to take on a job that needs to be completed in a matter of days (as it needs to be completed by the end of the week).

Thank you,

Mo and the Prime Quadrant team
