We are a specialist Kindle book publisher based in the UK and are seeking a reliable and competent proofreader to prepare the electronic manuscript of an exciting new novel entitled, 'HUw, Iraci and Lenin' for publication. The manuscript is 72,000 words in length.

We have a House Style sheet available which is based upon standard Oxford English conventions and must be adhered to.

The work needs no editorial input (and by this I mean changes to the author's style, it MUST, however, be error free), merely a thorough proofread to eradicate any basic mistakes.


A rapid, accurate turnaround is important to us.

Ideally, we require this manuscript completed within 3 days of receipt.

The need for TOTAL accuracy is essential, particularly concerning spelling, grammar, punctuation and the correct use of quotation marks.

We are looking at bids of around $175 and for a contractor who can turn the manuscript around on time, returning it error free.

Thank you.
