Proof Reading & Copy Editing

Proof Reading and Copy Editing require a practiced skill set that differs slightly from developmental and content editors. Our editor Emmie Mears is practiced in all of these areas.

Proof Reading

This is ONLY detail work. A strict proof read includes the following:

  • consistency errors
  • missing or misused words
  • incorrect or missing punctuation

Is this the service for you?

Before sending your book to copy editing, it should be mostly free of errors to the best of your ability. This includes (but is not limited to): POV consistency, grammatical errors, and typos.

Even the most eagle-eyed editors can miss things if a manuscript has a large number of errors. Copy editing and proof-reading should be the final polishing passes before publication. If you need help with getting a manuscript ready to that stage, you may need more of a line edit.
