Proofreaders for hire in Atlanta

You’ve carefully drafted your manuscript, revised it, gotten editors’ feedback, and revised some more. Now it’s as polished as can be — which means you’re finally ready to publish it, right?

Almost, but not quite. The final step in the polishing process still needs to be carried out: a rigorous proofread, one that will weed out any little mistakes that previous edits might have missed. Of course, if you’re already long finished with those rounds of editing, you might be skeptical that a proofreader could find anything else to correct. But for all you know, your latest revisions could have introduced new typos that previous edits wouldn’t have accounted for. It’s also worth noting that if you’ve had a single editor pore over your manuscript multiple times, they’ve probably done a thorough job, but their eyes have inevitably become acclimated to the text — which means they might have accidentally skipped a few typos.

This is why, when hiring a proofreader, you should always look for someone brand-new who’s never seen your manuscript before. Fortunately, if you’re in search of proofreaders for hire in Atlanta, you’ve come to the right place! Our sharp-eyed proofreading professionals can make sure there’s nary a typo in the version of your book that goes to press. And isn’t that the reassurance that every author deserves? So to find the perfect proofreader in Atlanta to put your mind at ease, just sign up to Reedsy and start requesting quotes today.
