One small oversight can ruin a good book and a good marketing campaign designed to sell the book. When you are writing your book, it is easier to make mistakes because you are dedicating countless time, brainpower, and energy to your manuscript. The last thing on your mind when you are writing is to proofread your writing. That is why all authors should hire professional proofreaders to ensure that their writing is not going to waste by some small errors and an expert proofreader is going to improve their manuscript before publication.


What is Proofreading?

Proofreading is the most important and last step in the editing process of any manuscript before the book goes for publishing. Copy Editing and Line Editing can make significant changes in a manuscript and the whole flow of the book. A proofreader’s job is more to do with maintaining the quality of the manuscript. Proofreaders will never revise, rewrite, or delete anything substantial in the manuscript.

Having a professional proofreader will provide your manuscript the much needed fresh pair of eyes that will go through your manuscript looking for minor and absolute errors such as:

  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling errors
  • Capitalization errors
  • Verb tense

Do I really need a proofreader?

Proofreading is an essential and required step for all mainstream published books, and it is something that all self-published authors should consider. Any author will not want that; after publishing the book, you open your book and find silly typos and errors that could have easily been avoided if the book had been proofread because a proofreader would have easily caught them. Avoiding getting your manuscript proofread is a mistake that will cost you time and money in the long run. An experienced proofreader will make your manuscript more polished and will give you peace of mind too.


I was worried that my manuscript would be changed, but I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the final product; it looked polished and error-free.
