“Proofread by a professional editor”

Proofreading is the process of checking your manuscript for errors before it is published. It is an important role, which carries a significant level of responsibility. Our professional editors will proofread your manuscript and give it the careful attention it deserves. Proofreading is not just about spotting mistakes. It involves understanding the implications of the changes that are made and knowing when it’s best to leave things alone.

Is proofreading the same thing as editing? Although many people use the terms interchangeably, proofreading and editing are two different stages of the revision process of your manuscript. Both demand close and careful reading, but they focus on different aspects of the writing and employ different techniques. Proofreading is reading a proof copy of text for the purpose of detecting errors such as misspellings and mistakes in grammar and punctuation. A proof copy is traditionally a version of a manuscript that has been typeset after copy editing has been performed. Proofreading, an essential part of rewriting is a thorough, careful review of the final draft of an essay that ensures that all errors have been eliminated.

Synopsis / Back Cover Text

This is a brief outline, a general overview, an abstract or a summary of a book. It is also known as the back cover blurb. Our editor will need to read the complete manuscript in order to write the synopsis. Fees are payable in advance. Please contact us for further details of costs as all manuscripts vary.
