Maybe it would be best if I start off by saying what it is that I am NOT looking for...

I am not looking to hire someone who is going to read my book and then make a ton of changes before handing it back to me. The book went through a major edit such as that a few months ago. Since then I've made some changes resulting in the need for yet another "quick" edit. What I am looking for is a professional "second set of eyes" and of course a good proofreader - someone who will make all necessary changes to punctuation, grammar, spelling, etc., but who will also give me suggestions/recommendations as to how I could improve it's overall readability (making it more clear, concise and enjoyable).

The book is 59,000 words.

Please forward your project bid to

Thank you.

Stacey
