#Copyediting and #Proofreading

Here to make your writing dream a reality.

Would you like help with a final copyedit and proofread to finish your manuscript and publish your book?

I have self-published my debut novel The Windmill. The experience I gained in writing and producing my book will help you, the aspiring author, shape your manuscript through the many different phases. As a qualified Copyeditor and Proofreader, I can help with those final stages.

Editing and proofreading are two different things.


Involves checking grammar, punctuation and typos, and making minor tweaks where necessary. It is a thorough job that is usually the final step before publishing.

Proofreading involves checking consistency in design, punctuation, font size and style.

Whilst proofread, paragraph and section breaks will be checked, along with spelling and extra line spaces.

Widows (a paragraph-ending line that falls at the beginning of the following page or column, thus separated from the rest of the text) and pagination (checking all page numbering is consecutive) are thoroughly identified.

All these will help you ready your manuscript for publication.


Copyediting is where the copyeditor will assist the author in improving a manuscript before publishing. The copyeditor will check the authenticity of phrasing concerning your characters’ voice and word choice with the copyedit.

A copyedit will help you improve the writing quality in relation to language, tenses, tone, paragraph style, pace and flow, and dialogue expression. Standard document formatting and structure is checked for consistency and spelling.

The copyedit is a thorough procedure. The manuscript is checked, line by line and a full report produced.
