Proofread Sci-Fi Novel

Greetings to all;

I am in need of proofreading/editing of a ~104,000 word sci-fi book. The winning bidder will correct all grammatical errors present and should be comfortable editing colloquially-driven back-and-forth style dialogue. Experience in the sci-fi genre is not required -- nor necessarily sought -- but readily verifiable past fiction book/novella-based editing is a must.

Because of the nature and style of this book ONLY native English speaking bidders will be consider. Non-native speakers will simply find the American style dialect too foreign to properly edit. Lastly, while proper proofreading is an art, and art cannot be rushed, this project is on a timeline and as such preferential consideration will be given to those bidders who can complete the job sooner rather than later. Feel free to contact me with questions.

Respectfully, stnash
