The final quality check before your work goes out

Proofreading

Proofreading

Proofreading is where errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar are corrected.

It’s the final stage in the editing process and this final sweep for mistakes will polish your work to make it error-free.

Proofreading sends out the message you’re serious about presenting your work in the best possible way.

I use MS Word track changes, highlighting and comment tools to show you where any errors are. 

I have more than 20 years’ proofreading experience working with fiction and non-fiction authors, businesses, charities and organisations.

If you’d like your work proofread, please get in touch.

How it works

1.

The first step is to discuss your work. I'll ask you to send me a sample of your text so I can see how much proofreading is needed.

2.

We’ll talk about proofreading fees and a timeline.

3.

If you decide to go-ahead, you’ll sign a contract and pay 50% of the fee upfront as a non-refundable deposit.

4.

Upon completion of the work the remainder of the fee is paid.
