Book Proofreading Services: The Benefits

Having a professional book proofreader with years of experience and a range of qualifications proofread your book manuscript thoroughly can help develop your work in several ways that will make it read better and improve your manuscript’s chances of getting a second glance from submissions editors at publishing houses. Even slight errors can interrupt the flow of the best of books, whether fiction or non-fiction. In the case of fiction, the reader’s immersion in the text is interrupted when there are technical errors in the writing.

The difference between to be or not to be? and to be or not to bee? is the difference between beauty and nonsense! The bottom line is engaging the assistance of a professional book proofreading service can significantly improve both tone and content, providing a real boost to your prospects of success.

We offer three levels of service:

Book Proofreading Service

Our Book Proofreading service is our most basic and is included in each of the services below. Essentially, your book manuscript will be checked for spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, and typos. This results in a well-polished manuscript with a high level of clarity maintained throughout.

This is an excellent service for and mid-development manuscripts. For fiction and non-fiction authors alike, a strong emphasis is placed on catering to the perspective of the acquisitions editor.
