Proofing for Writers

As a writer myself, I understand that things get messy as you write and that an extra set of eyes can make a world of difference in your writing. I also get how important your story is to you. I would be honored to help you polish your work for publication.

I have also completed a course in general proofing, for more information about my credentials, click here.

I have proofed both works of fiction and non-fiction, though as a fantasy writer, I will admit my heart lies with fiction.

I charge:

$0.008 per word
$0.010-$0.012 per word for a manuscript needing extensive cleanup

Turnaround time depends on length of the manuscript. I am willing to look over a short sample for free to give you a better idea of the finished product and the time it will take to complete it.

I proof in PDF and Word doc format. A PDF will be sent back to you with annotations marked. You may open the document alongside your work and make your changes. A Word doc will be sent back with annotations as well. You may accept or reject these changes using the track changes feature. It is up to you which method you prefer.

Please send me your manuscript only after it is finished and has been edited to the point where it just needs that final proofing to clean up grammatical errors. For more information on what proofreading is, click here.

Kind words from a happy author:

You were quick and efficient. Learned a lot from you and a lot about myself and my bad habits in writing. I was so happy. You saved me after I had to redo my book at the last minute because I decided to tell it from another viewpoint.
