I need around 80,000 words of a novel text proof-read, and I need the job done quite quickly.

The job calls for English as a first-language, and good attention to detail etc. The work is not particularly error-heavy as it has been edited and re-read several times, so this is a last final proof to pull out any remaining small errors.
