Proofreading service for authors

If you want to be taken seriously as an author you need to make sure your manuscript has been polished to perfection. Sadly, no matter how good your plot and characters, you won’t get far with agents if your book is littered with typos and spelling mistakes.

As an experienced proofreader and copy editor, I offer a proofreading service for authors and can help you produce a manuscript worthy of publication. I’ll make sure you’ve crossed the Ts and dotted the Is and check there are no errant apostrophes lurking around!

I can also tidy up clunky prose, check for inconsistencies and make sure your book is a pleasure to read.

I have experience in proofreading and editing a range of books including novels, business e-books, self help guides and autobiographies. Click here to see some of the titles I have worked on.

Alison at ‘The Proof Fairy’ is fantastic at what she does. She is always very honest about timings and sticks to the deadline that she has promised. Her work was recently seen by a contemporary of mine and they described it as some of the most well presented work that they had ever seen. That person is a Best Selling Author so knows his stuff.

My proofreading service for authors costs just £8.50 per thousand words, invoiced to the nearest 500 words. I am not registered for VAT so there are no hidden fees and you can easily work out exactly how much your proofreading will cost.  Contact me to book your project in, or call me on 01367 888229 if you have any questions.

If you are still looking for a publisher or would like to format your book for Kindles and other electronic devices, please contact me as I can help with that too.
