Proofreading is often an underappreciated art. It’s the last stop before a book goes to press, which means that this is your last chance to hire a proofreader and make your story perfect. As you already know, all it takes is one typo to render your book unprofessional in readers’ eyes. As such, proofreaders must have a magical combination of skills: decades of experience, a keen knowledge of all of the different style sheets in the industry, and a sharp eye.

If you doubt that you can catch every single error in your manuscript yourself, hire a proofreader from our database of elite publishing professionals. Their proofreading services will help ensure that you will publish the best possible version of your book. Only the top 3% of proofreaders in the industry are accepted on our marketplace, so you can rest assured that you’re collaborating with the best proofreaders in the industry.
