This is the final stage before publishing or posting. It could be a book, a social media post, a newsletter, a blog, correspondence, an article or anything written that you wish to share with the world. Proofreading ensures no nasties slip through!

What am I looking for during a proofread?

When proofreading, I’m looking at your finished piece of work. It’s ready to go, but for peace of mind you would like someone to give it a read through. One author once said to me he would rather hear about any little mishaps now, than on a review later when it’s too late!

So, I’ll be keeping an eye out for any blips with spelling, grammar and punctuation. I’ll also be checking the font style, size and colour are consistent throughout and that your text is aligned perfectly. I want your work to look as fantastic as it is to read!

How much does it cost?

Proofreading is charged at £10 per 1000 words.

You have a manuscript but are unsure what to do next.

If this is your first book or blog it can be incredibly exciting. There is always a nervous voice too. Perhaps you are not sure if this is the right time, but are looking for information to consider in the future? I’m always happy to chat about how you can take your project forward. If you would like to exchange emails, a call or meet for a coffee and a chat about your work or the process, please do get in touch. There’s no obligation or charge for advice.

How does it work?

After chatting informally, if you would like to proceed I will send you a booking form asking for some information to make sure I understand your deadlines and any needs you may have for the project. You can then email me your work in Microsoft Word. The suggested edits will be made using the ‘track changes’ feature in Microsoft Word, which enables you to approve or decline any changes I make once I return your document. This ensures you have full control over your work.

If you have any questions I haven’t answered, please do drop me an email.
