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 novel, 'Call to the Inland' for publication. This is a straightforward proof reading task requiring no editorial input at all. Anyone who is accomplished in this field will find this task to be both quick and easy.

The novel is in Microsoft Word format, contains a proportion of dialogue and is 55,000 words in length. We have a House Style sheet available which is based upon standard Oxford English conventions and must be adhered to.

We require a price for the complete job and a delivery date. A rapid, accurate turnaround is important to us. Ideally, we need this manuscript completed within 3 days of receipt.

As this is an incredibly straightforward job, bids should not exceed $200; there is very, very little which requires changing.
