Hi there,

I've just finished writing a book and would like to have it proofread. I believe it's in fairly good shape already, but I agree that it detracts from the credibility and quality of a book to have spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. Thus, I'd like my book to be free of those.

I'm having someone do the interior layout design and need to get them the corrected manuscript quickly. I'd ideally like to have this done within a week.

The book is 50,000 words (about 230 pages in Word), it's non-fiction. The title is Woohoo! Wealth and the subtitle is The 7 Pillars of Creating the Wealth You Want and a Life You Love.

Thanks for your consideration.

All the best,

Colin
