Hire the best cozy mystery proofreaders


The sleuth has solved the crime, the suspects’s movements have been explained, the perpetrator’s motives have been revealed — but who’s going to solve the impossible case of the many typos riddling the story?


That’s when you hire a cozy mystery proofreader. With the observant eye of Hercule Poirot, a proofreader can scan your work for every furtive flaw, be it a grammatical, spelling, or punctuation error. Much like the best detective, you can bet that the proofreader will untangle any final minor issues with your draft, leaving the truth of your writing (and the crime) out in the open.


On the Reedsy marketplace, you can hire a cozy mystery proofreader and be assured that they’ll read your work with the penetrative eyes needed in such a genre. Sign up to Reedsy today to request quotes tailored to the specifics of your project.
