Proofreading

Posted by Kristen House on June 21, 2015 at 1:40 PM



Proofreading is the last step in the editing process before publishing. It focuses mainly on word choice, punctuation, spelling, syntax, and grammar, and is essentially a final read-through to make sure your book doesn’t have any surface errors.


This service also comes with a free Editor's Report, a 1-page letter highlighting the most common issues I found during editing, geared toward showing you how to avoid your most common writing mistakes to become a better writer.


Proofreading focuses on fixing:

    • Spelling
    • Capitalization errors
    • Typos
    • Punctuation
    • Syntax
    • Grammatical errors
    • Word choice
    • Repetitiveness
    • Missing or repeated words
    • Eliminating unnecessary words

My proofreading service does not focus on improving sentence structure, maintaining consistency, or improving clarity and logic of scenes. (If this is what you're looking for, check out my line editing service.) Also, my proofreading service also does not include fact checking.

Interested in proofreading, plus a little bit more? Proofreading is one of the services included in The Basic, The Standard, or The Ultimate editing packages.

Please read my guide for information on sample edits, editing packages, rush project options, and the scheduling process.
