Your one-stop shop for pristine manuscript revision.
Proof reading is an essential part of the writing process, whether you are going with traditional publishing or self-publishing.
Take your manuscript to a higher level of excellence by having your book proof-read, edited, and restructured. Success is driven by the little things: correcting small grammatical errors and/or removing redundant sentences that can place an author at a higher standard of authorship. Every piece of writing should be reviewed by a third party before publication. Someone who reads the manuscript for the first time is better able to spot errors.
Create a good impression when you make that first submission/publication
As a published author and editor, we strive to maintain your author’s voice while guiding you to improve your writing. Linda is an experienced English-speaking editor, available to make your book publish ready!
As your proof reader, we will read your book from the view of a prospective customer, and polish your work to a high standard. Your manuscript will be sent back to you quickly and at an affordable price.

Developmental Editing Components:

- looks for inconsistency (names, dates, chapter titles, character’s features, etc.)
NOTE: Developmental editing (including spelling, grammar, punctuation)
should generally be done BEFORE proofreading,
that way proofreading does not need to be repeated.
