Dear Elancers,

I have a finished collection of twelve short stories. The word count is 90,000. I need the file to be proofread before publication. To make this cost effective for both of us, here's what I need:

- Proofreading for punctuation and typos only. Absolutely no editing required. No formatting required. These are thrillers/mysteries, so you should ignore things like incomplete sentences.
- The file is in easy-to-read 12 point Courier.

- The file will contain a few typos that I'm aware of. I trust that you will spot them.
- I expect to receive from you the file with perhaps one highlighted typo every three or four pages.

Native USA proofreaders only. I w...
