Hi,
I'm preparing to self-publish a book (through LightningSource), and would like to hire a proofreader who can catch grammar mistakes, typos, small formatting issues, poor language, etc.

While I would appreciate feedback on how content is arranged /editing / copy-editing, my priority is the proofreading.

If you can provide more than just proofreading, please break out your bid into the different services you can help me with.

I will attach a 180 page draft. A new draft (the longer one) will be ready in a few days.

Aaron
