Proofreading: Short English Novel: Sci-fi eBook (Budget <= USD100)

We're seeking a proofreader for an upcoming released sci-fi fantasy eBook, around 5,200 English words (~16 A4 pages) in total, available online (Google, Kindle etc.).

The applicant MUST be an English native speaker from English-speaking countries (native) such as: US, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand etc... We won't consider you if you are not.

Please keep in mind that it is a translated book from a Chinese sci-fi fiction, So there would be cultural difference in language, dialogue and ideas. Also, you will read "anti-norm" content including female violence, erotica (questionable), and anti-feminism. Make sure you are alright with the aforesaid terms before applying.

The proofreader is REQUIRED to do the following:

[1] seeking for mistakes (grammatical, typo etc...)

[2] check the characters dialogue, based on the judgement on natural speaking and suitability for that character.

[3] Check the paragraph transitions for readability and smoothness (in reader POV).

[4] Adjust paragraph (e.g. suggest a position that starts a new paragraph) if needed.

[5] Suggest the use of words in any sentence(s) to enhance the text, based on your thought in terms of the context.

[6] write down brief notes to explain all the above items.

Again, this English book is a translated version from its Chinese counterpart. Please take into account when you proofread and suggest the editing.
