Book Proofreading Service for Authors
Book proofreading is an essential step before final publication to ensure accuracy, consistency and quality, and an enjoyable reading experience.
Authors are often too close to their work to proofread effectively and spot elementary language mistakes and inconsistencies. Although a friend or family member be gladly offer to proofread your book, a professional book editor is much better equipped to perform the job well.
Global English Editing employs professional editors who specialize in book editing and proofreading. They know the common mistakes that authors tend to make and are in the best position to ensure that a book is error-free.
Global English Editing’s book editing service is designed to ensure that a manuscript is mistake-free and consistent in spelling, style and terminology. We recommend that book proofreading be the last step in the publishing process, and is usually most effective after a book editing service has been received. If you are not there yet, our book editing and manuscript evaluation services may be more appropriate as they are designed to improve the book at an earlier stage.
However, authors have different goals and proofreading may be the only service some authors require. As a standalone service, our book proofreading service can improve the quality of a manuscript by eliminating mistakes and inconsistency.
