Proofread 67,600 words novel

English-US proofreading

I have a novel with 67,600 words that needs proofing. Sample attached

Native North-American freelancer required

Note: I ran the spelling and grammar function of MS Word on the entire document and made some choices that contradicted Word's suggestions - according to the tone of the sentence. When characters speak I often keep grammatical errors that sound more conversational, as well in the narrator's "voiceover". See examples below. I didn't adhere to specific rules, just the "sound" of the sentences.

I.e, I occasionally chose -

Apparently there was another band coming up.
