EDIT: forgot to say that the book is written in UK English.
I need someone who knows when to break the rules, and when not to break the rules. You will check for grammar, spelling, clarity, consistency.
This is a professional book, which has been back and forth between the writer and the editor many times, and thus is very well polished already.
You're not required to comment on the story, but you need to look out for any continuity errors. Night turning into day halfway through a scene. Wrong character names. Stuff like that.
Formatting is not a big issue on this job. Just make the formatting consistent, so that I can make global changes later on. I think it pretty much is already consistently formatted anyway.
If, upon getting the job, you proof read my work, and you're not sure what to class as stylistic choice and what to class a bad grammar. I'm pretty open to discussion. We'll work it out together ;) I'm really hoping for someone who can communicate with me when necessary so we can figure out the best choices if there are any gray areas. Most of it will be black and white though.
Thanks and good luck!
p.s no deadline, just do a good job.
