I need someone to proof read and edit a fiction story of about 280 pages (double spaced). It is a fantasy / adventure story. I am not the writer of the story but I told a friend I'd help them find someone to do a real thorough editing.

I also need whoever is hired to write a brief synopsis of the story to be used as the description on Amazon and other book selling services.

I'm also look for suggestions for a name for the story.

Please, English as a first language applicants only.
