Proofreader in Calgary

When you’re nearing the end of the long, hard slog of writing, editing, and formatting a book, it’s tempting to forgo “perfunctory” final checks and just publish the thing already. But imagine this: you’ve put your book up on Amazon, maybe even had copies printed and bound. You turn to the first page of your first chapter, and… you immediately spot a misspelled word. How could I have missed that? you think. And then, the truly terrifying notion: If I missed that one, how many more could there be?

To avoid this nightmarish scenario, you’ll want to invest in a professional proofreader. It might seem unnecessary now, especially if you and all your editors (and maybe beta readers too) have read your book cover to cover. But just because they’ve read it, doesn’t mean they’ve seen it. And in fact, though your copy editor can be entrusted with many things, you should never ask them to also perform the final proofread of your book; their eyes and brain are too accustomed to the text to pick out tiny inconsistencies.

So when it comes time for that final check, you’ll want to hire a fresh editor who’s had no previous contact with your book. They’ll be a much more discerning proofreader than someone who’s already mulled over every line from a standard editorial perspective. Fortunately, we have such a wealth of editors on Reedsy, you can find all the editors you need in one fell swoop! Sign up here to hire a proofreader in Calgary today, and give yourself the ultimate peace of mind: knowing that the text of your book is absolutely spotless.
