Hello everyone,
I'm looking for a copy editor and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? I've just finished a collection of very short stories and got as far as I can as far as proof reading goes.
From what I remember there are a few members that do the authoring, so I thought it might be a good idea to ask here before I open a can of google.

All the thanks and sorry if this is in the wrong thread/board/area.

Hi Will. It's certainly been a while. Feel a bit bad the post is not much of a contribution.

I might be able to help if there aren't many and they're VERY short stories. I used to do some proof reading in my real job.

Good skills, Chappers. They are very short but there's nineteen of the buggers. All in all about 5000 words. Happy to pay of course. If this sounds ok on the word count maybe PM me about cost and stuff? Nice.
