A Columbus proofreader can be instrumental in helping you finalize your book.


Continuing the work of a developmental editor (who'll have made sure all your big-picture elements are in order), a proofreader will look at your work under a microscope to identify inaccuracies in spelling, punctuation, and grammar.
