I am looking for a professional copy editor/proofreader for my manuscript Welcome to Nothing. It is 71,000 words and I am willing to pay $5 per $1000 words or $350 for the project.

If you would please send me your experience (website is fine) as well as a sample edit in order to know that I am getting a good match. The sample edit will be provided in a link once you inquire.

The book is a philosophical sci-fi​ comedy about a scientist named Francis A. Goddard who creates two transhumans to find the truth behind nature​ vs. nurture. Together the two transhumans, Spoon and Fork, are abruptly thrown into a confusing world that is constantly being watched by Francis, who has another, more sinister plan in mind for the two.
