Proofread and copyedit a manuscript

We are looking for a final proofread and copyedit for readability and flow of a 30,000 word manuscript. This book has already gone through several rounds of thorough edits and is almost print-ready with a final read-through and light editorial work.

We are looking for spelling and grammar errors, punctuation, and sentence structure issues.

This is an expanded version of a book already in print, and is an important story of loss and healing from the mother of a fallen Marine.


Missing Max is a compelling story of one mother’s journey as Julie recalls the extraordinary events surrounding the death of her Marine son, Corporal Max W. Donahue, who was killed in Afghanistan in August, 2010. You will share her despair, fears, tears and finally, her hope as Julie moves through the days and months following word of Max’s injury, and then his death.

Missing Max is a must-read for anyone who has lost a loved one. It encourages the reader to live a life focused on making their lost loved-one proud. Julie writes of moving through the grieving process and, through her faith and the love of family and friends, begins the healing process and going forward with her life.

Julie’s hope in writing Max’s story is that it will provide strength, hope, courage and faith to those who need it. And she hopes that Max, and all fallen soldiers, will never be forgotten.

Still Missing Max: The Expanded Version tells of the intimate way God carried Julie through the years following Max’s death. Even if the reader doesn’t share her belief, most won’t dispute that something miraculous was and is occurring.
