Are You Looking For A Proofreader?

Presentation and first impressions mean everything, especially to readers buying your books. If you are ready to publish your novel 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.

   Proofreading is a passion of mine and I strive for perfection in my work. I am only human, but I pay great attention to detail, and will do my absolute best to note any grammatical errors that may be present. I want your manuscript to look as polished as it can before publication, and I promise to do my very best to make that happen.

What Does My Proofreading Service Provide?

I will do a one-time pass of your manuscript, and 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.)

I will also ensure consistency in:

  • Hyphenation
  • Capitalization

Not included in my proofreading service:

  • Editing Suggestions
  • Opinions
  • Plot/Continuity Errors

If you have any general questions or concerns regarding my proofreading service, I will be more than happy to answer them. Please use the short form on my Contact page, otherwise fill out the proofreading form below. 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 that need to be made. Turnaround time is usually 3-5 days. However, I will try to accommodate your schedule the best that I can.

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.
