Your manuscript is finished — but now it’s time to give it a polished and professional feel. This entails weeding out any grammatical and punctuation errors that may be easy for you to overlook — which is why you need the services of a professional proofreader.
Hiring a proofreader is an important step in your editing process, since they are the final check to ensure that your work is devoid of embarrassing mistakes. Beyond catching any spelling or grammatical mistakes, a proofreader will also double-check that your page numbers and chapter titles match the table of contents, and correct the aesthetics of your book from page design to typesetting. Some authors take on the task of proofreading themselves — however, to truly ensure top-notch quality, it is more advisable to hire a qualified professional with a keen eye and rich experience in your genre.
At Reedsy, it’s easy to find the proper proofreader for you, as all our professionals come with an expert skillset and years of experience. To find the right professional, browse through profiles and send in your request today!
