I require a professional editor/ proof-reader to proofread and edit my novel of 135,000 words.

You need to be a skillful experienced proof-reader who masters the English language perfectly.

The manuscript has a total of 324 pages, approximately 135,000 words over 24 chapters.

This heroic, psychological, spiritual and lesbian fantasy novel needs close examination for grammar, punctuation, and capitalization, although it has been through a couple of runs of checks already, therefore it will mainly be the final finishing touches. I am also looking for suggestions on rephrasing as well, under discussion, but no major rewriting.

You need to:

-Please include some links to or samples of published pieces you've edited

-Have English as a first language

-Have a few good portfolio pieces under your belt.


Thank you, Natasja
