Proofreader in Austin

Stop us if you’ve ever had this nightmare before: you’ve just published your book, and you’re celebrating by popping open a (well-deserved) bottle of champagne. That’s when your phone dings: it’s Amazon letting you know that you just got your first review. In excitement, you open up the page, only to find the reviewer complaining about a typo in your book. Another review comes in criticizing another found typo. Then another, and another.

If that scenario is a very present scenario for you, then you should seriously consider hiring a proofreader. Such a professional will comb your book and point out every single typo, punctuation mistake, and grammatical error to fix. Indeed, no book should ever be published without a proofread. Think of it as a safety net — even when you think that you’ve caught everything, there will probably be one or two grave blunders that will slip through your purview if you don’t proofread.

That said, finding a good proofreader is easier said than done! That’s why Reedsy built a marketplace of over a hundred of the best proofreaders in Austin and around the world. Our proofreaders come from Big 5 publishers and have already worked with bestselling authors from Stephen King to Neil Gaiman before. You can browse their portfolios yourself to confirm that they’re the right match for your book and genre. Sign up for a free Reedsy account today to meet and talk to them.
