What is included in a proofread edit?

A proofread edit is different than a line or copy edit. It is the final look at your novel and includes the following:  a check of your spelling, grammar, punctuation, and subject-verb agreement, and to resolve any formatting issues (if agreed upon prior to booking as some authors do not want their formatting changed).

Please note: the proofread should be the final edit before you publish 


            FICTION ONLY 

            I specialize in Romance but can edit all genres EXCEPT Sci-Fi and high fantasy as I am not as familiar with these genres.



$0.003 per word – POST-PUBLICATION PROOFREAD: Where you in a rush to publish your book and up against a pre-order deadline?  Not happy with the proofreader you had on your book?

A POST-Publication Edit offers you a quick, single pass edit to correct those pesky, or not so pesky, mistakes that made it into the final version of your novel. I will look for obvious typos, misspellings, and minor grammatical errors. This is not a deep edit. If I find that there are multiple issues, such as a lot of the aforementioned or continuity errors or sentence-level grammatical errors, I will contact you to discuss doing a copy edit or a two-pass proofread edit at a higher rate.
