Details

I will flag missing words and correct errors in spelling, punctuation, and grammar; identify and correct typographical and formatting errors; make sure the spelling of proper names and non-English words, as well as numbers, figures, and descriptions, are consistent; and check that all hyperlinks work and lead to active web pages.

Proofreading is a service meant for polished manuscripts that have been professionally edited and contain a minimal amount of errors. This service understands that all style choices (repetitions—actions, words, sentences, concepts—redundant language, unnecessary adverbs, etc.) and big-picture elements (plot, scene development, dialogue, etc.) are deliberate and were previously evaluated.

Email Elizabeth to schedule your manuscript for a proofread.


A PayPal fee will be added to the total cost of the edits. It is calculated using http://thefeecalculator.com.
5% GST will be added to Canadian orders.
The listed rates are in US currency.
