Dear Sir:

I have brought out the following publications on my own, namely:

1. Handbook of Entrance Examinations and Scholarships and Fellowships (pp.1650), meant for Indian students
2. Topical Studies (pp.900) meant for candidates who take Indian Administrative Service examinations
3. Written English (pp.100) meant to improve English
4. Progressive Improvement of English and Personality Development( pp.222)

I am now exploring the possibility of associating myself with some publishers or those who are engaged in similar profession so that we may undertake such jobs as wordprocessing manuscripts in English (in social sciences, humanities, etc., not science subjects) and formatting them, using software such as MS Word/PageMaker.

This is how we shall work:

a. We will compose the manuscript through MSWord.
b. We will compare the first draft, word by word
c. We will carry out the corrections noted by us in the first draft.
d. We will then e-mail the final draft composed in MS Word.

We also accept jobs which involve thorough proofreading and some editing.

In fact when we initiated our publication programme, we had optimistically hoped that out of some profit we would be able to institute a few scholarships for the economically weak but bright students at school level. Somehow, our efforts have not borne any tangible results, but our determination to achieve our objective is firm. We hope that something pleasant will come out from our association with you.

Kindly do reply. In case our services are of no use to you, please tell us whom we should write as our potential client. Thanks.

With warm regards,

Yours sincerely,

Hi Manny,
Are you still looking for proofreaders?
I am available, having recently started my own business in this field.
As I am new to the area, my fee is negotiable around AUS$25 per hour.
Email a sample to me and I can time it to come up with a price per page, if that is what you prefer.

I'm in the US and am interested in proofreading/editing your manuscript. I charge by the piece (not by the hour). I have edited one book before and am very thorough. I also love copyediting as a hobbie and would enjoy the work.
