This job was posted previously, but was not awarded, due to an author's rewrite.
I have a manuscript of approximately 270,000/390 pages which I require proofreading. It is a British crime thriller and does contain references to drugs, murder, violence and strong language. Similarly, there are phrases and references that might not be in current usage, or considered as politically incorrect. If you are uncomfortable with any of these, please don't pitch for this job
Having said that, we believe that all violence and strong language is in context and never gratuitous.
An excellent grasp of UK English is a prerequisite; you will find colloquial English within the text, but we are happy to explain anything that is not understood. The novel is set in the 1990's, so there may be some period references that are not familiar; again, we are happy to explain anything you might come across.
There is no absolute deadline for this project, but we would like this completing promptly. Please give some indication of anticipated timescale when you pitch for the job.
