Hi, I have just written a historical romance novel, set in 1958 Africa and Britain. It's tells the story of a young motherless African girl who falls in love with a privileged English student, you cannot leave his status for her.

I am at the stage where I would like to submit a synposis to literary agents for consideration.

The work involves editing the 1,600 word synposis written in MS Word.

I am looking for help in proof reading for spelling, grammar, syntax, and consistency of content. As the synposis is going to be used to sell the book. It would be an advantage if you have experience in editing or proofreading for the British reader (ie colour not color), but you do not need to British or based in Britain.
