Proofread book (no editing)

My budget is $100. So don't bother bidding more. I also don't want to pay less. It's a fair price for the amount of work, but I need someone who will do a great job. If you bid more, you didn't read which is not a good sign for a proof reader.

I've written a book that is 60k words. It has been through several rounds of editing, but I think it needs one more read through with a pair of fresh eyes. I am mainly looking for spelling, missing words and punctuation help. If something is confusing it an be pointed out but I'm not looking for much help with the actual content/wording.

The book has been published as it is current, so you can read a sample on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/Recidivist-Addicted-shocking-alcoholism-redemption/dp/1533259054/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1475682585&sr=8-1&keywords=the+recidivist

The reviews so far are good, but I feel it needs more polish before I push it to agents.

I'm aware that some people just use Grammarly for work like this. Don't bother bidding if that's your scam. It's easy to tell.

Hi MIck, I agree - your book is in good shape. It's actually good enough for an agent - at least - nothing that proofreading will improve for that purpose. Publishers will want their own editors to have a go at it a More
