Fiction Novel Editing

I have a novel of 70,000 words I would like edited.

I am an ex English teacher, so there shouldn't be too many mistakes. I have attached a sample chapter of what my writing looks like. I have proof-read it myself twice but I now need some expertise and a fresh pair of eyes.

I need it checked for these elements - grammar, tense, repeated sentences or concepts, consistency of punctuation, consistency of specific terms used in the novel (like time periods) and general editing concepts like fixing over-complicated sentences.

The file is currently in MS Word form. I would like a copy of the editing in Word with changes tracked and comments added in context of the novel.

I will proofread, edit for English grammar, and check spelling. I am also very good at making sure all tenses are appropriate for their context. I will verify that the continuity of the story makes sense, etc.

I identified a few mistakes in this sample of yours. I will scrutinise your novel and check for the consistency you require. I hope I can keep up with your tone! (I have a British grammar)
