Proofreader for Hire London

You’ve removed all plot holes, tightened up your prose, gone through several rounds of revisions, and feel like your manuscript is just about ready to hit the presses. But before you do, there’s one crucial part of the editing process left: proofreading.

This involves looking out for spelling, grammar, punctuation, and consistency errors.
