Polishing your words until they sparkle like literary diamonds
Give your work the final polish it needs to ensure it’s smooth, shining, and ready to dazzle your audience.
Professional Proofreading Services
It often baffles people to learn that I pay someone else to proofread my own work when I’m a professionally trained proofreader myself, but here’s a surprising truth about publishing: even proofreaders need proofreaders.
When you have poured so much into crafting your words, you no longer see them objectively. This is true for amateur writers and professionals. Even authors who consistently top the New York Times bestseller list work with proofreaders. It’s the only way to ensure a book of professional quality. Even the most talented writers make mistakes. Typos slip in, punctuation gets missed, and your grammar occasionally develops a mind of its own and decides to freestyle at the expense of all reason and common sense.
If you’re preparing a manuscript of any length for publication, from a free optin PDF on your website to a 150K tome on your brand’s signature service, you need to get it proofread by a professional who is objective – not your well-meaning parents, siblings or friends! It’s no reflection on you, the quality of your writing, or the ability of your loved ones, it’s simply a reality: professional quality requires distance and objectivity.
If your manuscript needs a final polish to correct all those typos, smooth out that grammar, and punch up your punctuation my proofreading services are just the thing. If you’re interested in either my ghostwriting or editing service, I also highly recommend investing in proofreading as well. They are very different, and no manuscript is complete without a separate, objective proofread from a fresh pair of eyes that have neither written nor edited the book. It is for exactly this reason that if I’m acting as writer or editor for you, my trusty proofreading sidekick takes over.
I offer a flat rate for proofreading so use the slider below for a quick quote, and if you’re unsure if you need editing or just proofreading, book a free Discovery Call and we’ll have a chat about your project.
