From the Wicked Bible to the Pasta Bible, we’ve all seen how a few small mistakes can spoil a great story. And mistakes are always easier to make after dedicating countless time, sweat, and brainpower to your manuscript. That’s why serious authors hire professional proofreaders to ensure their efforts don’t go to waste before their books go to print.

What is proofreading?

Proofreading is the necessary last step in the editing process—and the final stop before publishing. While copy editing and line editing can make substantial changes (such as correcting inconsistent spelling or hyphenations) to the manuscript’s language, a proofreader’s role is more about quality assurance. Proofreading is not the time to revise, rewrite, and delete.

A professional proofreader brings a fresh set of eyes to your work and scours for absolute errors such as:

  • Punctuation
  • Misspellings
  • Capitalization
  • Verb tense
  • Grammar issues

Do I really need a proofreader?

Proofreading is a required step for all traditionally published books, and it’s something for all self-published authors to consider. You don’t want to open your published book to find silly typos that a proofreader could’ve easily caught. It's a hard lesson that'll cost you more time and money in the long run. Working with an experienced editor grants a polished manuscript—and peace of mind.
