Proofread - Young Adult Fantasy Novel Manuscript

Hello, relisted job due to new baby.

I've written and self-published a young adult fantasy novel. It was edited and proofread by several individuals (through, but many common mistakes were still in the manuscript. I haphazardly published it on Amazon and although it was well received, some said it was poorly edited/proofread, so here I am. I'm looking for a proofreader to go over it one last time.

I feel it would be an enjoyable read for a YA Fantasy reader (think The Never Ending Story meets Alice in Wonderland) and a relatively simple proofread at this stage of the manuscript.

(See attached chapter 1 as an example)

I can provide the latest manuscript in Word format. It's in USA English, so please make sure you know it inside and out.

It is a large novel at around 200,000 words broken into 83 Chapters- Chapters get smaller and smaller as they bounce from one perspective to another until the climatic ending.

One story in the fantasy world the other in a reality as we know it, intwine until both meet in the end.

I start each chapter with over 80 illustrations drawn by myself to break it up somewhat.(Think Edgar Allen Poe, black ink drawings)

I have attached the first chapter as an example.

Will need it completed within 1 week

Word doc to be returned proofread. You can trickle feed them through as completed.

Happy to accept word doc changes, would like it confidently completed on your end available for me to cut & paste into working Indesign Print Document. Without a worry of finding any typographical errors, mistakes in grammar, style, and spelling.

If you can and would like do this, please apply!
