We are a specialist Kindle book publisher based in the U K and are seeking a reliable and competent proof reader/copy editor to prepare the electronic manuscript of a very short and charming novella and is entitled, 'Jethro's Last Summer' for publication. There is also another short story by the same author to be edited. In total, they do not exceed 8,000 words in length. We have a House Style sheet available which is based upon standard Oxford English conventions and must be adhered to.

The manuscript is not only short, it is extremely clean and requires a basic proof read only; bids should reflect this please.

This is not, as such, a simple job, but any experienced editor will not find it to be a difficult task. We are open to bids of around $300 but will consider a slightly higher figure for the rig...
