Copy Editing & Proofreading
Complete the Copy Editing & Proofreading form and an Author Ready editor will contact you to arrange a time to discuss your book and provide a cost estimate.
Depending on how clean your manuscript is, you may need to have both a copy edit and a proofread pass on your book. Our editors can help you decide which is best for your needs.
Your copy editor is the person who will take your polished manuscript and really make it shine. No matter how many times you’ve been through your manuscript, and no matter how many times you’ve had beta readers review it, there will still be errors. A professional copy editor reviews your book for spelling, punctuation, and grammar mistakes.
The proofreader takes your proof copy and ensures that everything is correct. This is your last chance to find and correct any mistakes before you publish (and there will still be mistakes, even at this stage).
