I have completed my first manuscript and it is ready to go to my self publisher. The book is non-fictional and approximately 36,000 words. It was just completely professional edited and I have now made all the recommended changes and corrected the grammar errors.

Before I send the book (manuscript) to my self publisher, I would like to have it proofread one more time to ensure that it is as grammatically error free as possible.

The book is about a business process methodology I created a few years ago. It gets a bit technical in a few places but this is kept to a minimum. This will be the first of several books I am writing within the same genre.

I would like to have the proofreading completed in a couple of weeks or less if at all possible, although I can make allowances for the holidays of course. I would like to know what you charge for a project of this nature.

Thanks,

Milton
