Basic Proofread

Storytelling is fun, and the submission portion can be quite intimidating. But

there is still hope! A proofread provides assurance in knowing that you can

submit a manuscript you are proud of rather than one you are merely satisfied

with.

 

Proofreading is the

last step of the editing process where the last of the crumbs -- spelling,

punctuation, grammar, formatting -- are swept away, leaving you with a clean

manuscript submission ready novel/short story. This proofread will be performed

in one of two ways (your choice): Microsoft Track Changes of PDF markup.

 

    I will proofread your document using your style guide and my skills.

   

Grammar and Punctuation – for any that are missing or need to be deleted

Spelling errors – Easy to miss and easy to fix

 

Word Usage – Their, they’re, and there

 

Readability – Having a nearly error free piece of material will help with the flow

 

Microsoft Track Changes (two copies returned: edited & changed)

Is proofreading for you?

You are ready for a proofread if you have gone through rounds of developmental editing, copyediting, and or line editing. A proofread will always be the last round of editing as it does not look for inconsistencies in the story telling, style of writing, tone and voice of the author, and the other plot of the story.
