Hi Lois --

I volunteer.

I've been a technical writer for 20+ years and have a good eye for detail.
Won spelling contests as a child :)

Subject: [LMB] need a few volunteer proofreaders

As I slog my way through the proofreading of my 2011 e-files for the VK
new-cover reissues, I realize I could surely use a few volunteer
proofreaders for the new files, before they go in to the person who
assembles and puts them up on the e-vendors for me.  I have rid the files of
a small host of old errors and micro-issues, but don't know, and haven't the
endurance to read each One More Time to see, if I have inadvertently
introduced new ones.  (Or missed any old ones.)

I need people who have done proofreading before, familiar with punctuation
and capitalization and hyphenation and formatting issues (and spelling and
so on.)  All will be standardized, mostly, to American usage, so Americans
are likely preferred.  The only reward I can offer is you would get to keep
the file (but not let it escape into the wild.)

I figure to distributes the files, so as not to unduly burden any one
person.  I don't need a stampede, as I have only finished half a dozen (or,
half-a-dozen, a half dozen, a half-dozen) files so far, and the rest aren't
going to go any faster for me.  Anyway, if you are qualified, interested,
and the task would seem fun and not disruptive for you, contact me off-list.

Ta, Lois.
