Proof Reading for Publishers
Why do I need a proof reader?
Ensuring that all the books you publish are free from errors give the reader confidence that your work is of a high quality. Nobody notices when there are no mistakes, but it is easy to develop a poor impression of a publisher if there are mistakes throughout the text.
How can you help me?
I will do as much or as little as you wish. In the first instance, I will check your client’s work for the usual errors in spelling, punctuation and grammar. If you wish me to go deeper into the work, I will correct inconsistencies in structure and form as well as correct more complex errors in grammar and punctuation. If so desired, I will modify the work to ensure it flows properly.
Will you change my work?
In essence, no. I will not write anything new, but I may need to alter elements such as the layout, structure, order and tense.
How much will it cost?
Roughly £8.50 per 1,000 words depending upon the size and type of the work, deadlines, etc. Get in touch for an exact price.
How long will it take?
It does depend on the size of the work, and how much work needs doing to correct mistakes. I work quickly and am capable of working to tight deadlines.
Is my work safe with you?
Yes. All work done is confidential. I never disclose any work to a third party. I delete work upon completion, unless requested otherwise.
