Rate begins at .008 per word for a single pass.
Rate begins at .013 for a double pass (two different proofreaders).
Proofreading is a final check for straggling errors left over from previous revisions, such as typos, missing words, and punctuation and spelling errors. It is the last step before you publish.
Proofreading can be done either within the manuscript using the Track Changes and Comments markup tools or on a PDF using Adobe Acrobat’s markup tools. We can also proofread advance reader copies (ARCs) for that all-important last check.
Here’s what my team and I look for:
- Minor grammar issues
- Punctuation errors
- Missing words
- Incorrect words
- Homonyms and homophones
Please note that proofreading is not a substitute for editing.
Proofreading is performed by a member of my team and/or by me.
