Once you’ve completed your book and gone through a couple rounds of editing, you’ll probably start debating whether or not you really need a professional proofreader. After all, why get one if you can just use spell check for free?
But spell check (and similar online apps) are vastly inferior to the human care of an actual proofreader. The algorithms of such apps are designed to correct errors based on basic elements of spelling and grammar, not to comprehend context, nuance, and unusual jargon. If you go through one of them for your proof, it won’t be able to catch every mistake in your book, and you’ll be kicking yourself down the line for publishing a book with so many typos.
