Hi, I have written a 88,000 word YA paranormal romance novel.

I am looking for help in proof reading for spelling, grammar, syntax, and consistency of content in American Standard English asap.

The novel has been gone through a few rounds of structural and copy editing. It has also been beta read a few times.

I am looking for a fresh pair of eyes to catch typos, missing words, misuse of words and punctuation.

(Of course, if you see any glaring story issues, feel free to comment).
------------------------------------------
Added 31 JUL 2012, 3:25 AM EDT
Note: I am NOT looking for input or help with:
** The direction of the novel
**The flow
** character development
**plot development
** overall summary of the manuscript
** changes to sentence structure
** formatting

I also DO NOT NEED
** report or summary of any kind

I would of course appreciate you thoughts on the overall story, but that's not required.
