Proofreading is serious business and requires a careful, human touch. When your book is in print, you will, of course, want it to be free of errors. We can help. You have worked long and hard on your manuscript; don't leave the proofreading to your computer's spell-checking program!

Our team will give your book a careful final edit, checking spellingword choicegrammarpunctuation, and formatting while respecting the integrity and voice of your writing Please note this stage comes after copy editing.

We'll also identify those errors that the writer may miss after seeing the text many times. There's a reason writers overlook mistakes in their work: the brain takes in the meaning but can fail to identify details like an extra word or even the wrong word. A proofreader seeing the material for the first time can identify those errors.

Additional Notes:

  • If applicable, we can also provide suggestions for improvements for future editions of the book.
  • We will track changes that you can accept or reject (please note that this might require conversion into a different document format).
