Are You Looking For A Proofreader?

If you are ready to publish your book and are looking for a second pair of eyes to do a final once-over on your manuscript, you’ve come to the right place!

What Does My Proofreading Service Provide?

I will do my very best to find the following errors and mistakes sometimes easily overlooked:

  • Misspelled Words
  • Incorrect/Missing/Extra Words
  • Punctuation Errors (including, but not limited to: missing commas, periods, or quotation marks).
  • Grammar Errors (Errors that only need simple fixes will be noted.)
  • Formatting Issues (If you’re using a special character or symbol, I’ll let you know if it shows up as gibberish on my end.)

I will also ensure consistency in:

  • Hyphenation
  • Numerals
  • Fonts
  • Capitalization

Not included in my proofreading service:

  • Editing Suggestions
  • Opinions
  • Plot/Continuity Errors

I strive for perfection in my work and pay great attention to detail, but at the end of the day I am only human. I want your manuscript to look as polished as it can before publication, and I will do my absolute best to find any errors in your manuscript.

   If you have any questions regarding my proofreading service, I will be more than happy to answer them. All communications between myself and the author will be conducted via email.

*Proofreading is the FINAL step and should only be done after ALL of your edits are complete.

What Manuscripts Do I Accept?

  • Novels
  • Novellas

I only proofread FICTION at this time.

I accept manuscripts in the following format:

  • *Microsoft Word Document

*I use the Track Changes feature in Word to document any errors I may come across in your manuscript. That way it will be easier for you to review any changes you may need to make before publishing.

How Long Does It Take?

The time frame to proofread your manuscript will vary depending on the length and severity of the corrections to be made. However, I will try to accommodate your schedule the best that I can. Turnaround time is usually 2-3 days, though it may take longer.

What Do I Charge?

I charge $0.003* per word (Paid in USD).

Example: 0.003 x 80,000 words = $240

I round up to the nearest dollar amount.

Payments are only accepted via PayPal.

Once I have received the manuscript via email, and confirm word count and price with you, I will send you an invoice for payment through PayPal. Cancellations and/or refunds are not available once I have received payment. I will start proofreading your manuscript after I have received payment in full.

*Prices subject to change.
