Proofreading

We know that professional editing is often too expensive for independent writers, so our proofreading service is tailored to provide an extra level of help to polish your writing.

In addition to correcting all mechanical errors (like typos and misplaced punctuation), we will also highlight problematic elements in the style and construction of the writing itself. This is particularly valuable for authors who intend to self-publish but find the cost of copy-editing prohibitive.

Manuscript assessments

For manuscript assessments, we will provide a 750–1 000 word report on the strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript. This feedback will include detailed suggestions that the author can use to further improve and polish their book for today’s market.

For example, here are a few of the important aspects we’ll focus on for you:

  • Are your characters well-developed and engaging?
  • Is your writing style effective for your target market?
  • Is the plot well-structured and believable?
  • Are your characters suitably motivated and consistent?
  • Does the narrative have a satisfying pace?

Our manuscript assessment will provide you with detailed, personalized feedback on how to raise the quality of your writing or story to a professional level. For self-publishing authors, this assessment can give your book that extra guidance it needs for commercial success.
