Full Proofread

Your book has been copyedited and polished to a high professional standard. Now it’s time for a meticulous proofread – by a fresh pair of eyes – to catch any remaining errors or formatting issues.

This will be the final quality-control step before you publish.

What you’ll get

  • A full line-by-line, word-by-word proofread of your manuscript that fixes any remaining errors in text or formatting. I’ll focus on the following:
    • Correct and consistent spelling, punctuation and grammar
    • Consistent capitalisation and hyphenation
    • Page numbering and chapter sequencing
    • Letter and line spacing
    • Paragraph indentation
    • Scene breaks
    • Widows and orphans
    • Consistency in text and image elements
  • A style sheet that records decisions on stylistic conventions, such as hyphenation, capitalisation, spelling and punctuation style.

the result was a much better script that I proudly presented to my publisher

When I got my manuscript back from Angela, I was shocked to realise it wasn’t just a couple of typos here and there as I’d imagined. She had done a huge job, and the result was a much better script that I proudly presented to my publisher.

I learnt so much from her thorough and kind approach to editing

This was my first experience of collaborating with an editor and what an excellent choice! Angela is an absolute delight to work with. I learnt so much from her thorough and kind approach to editing.

I highly recommend Angela to anyone who wants to release the best version of their book

I found Angela to be an exceptional editor to work with. I had trialled a number of freelance editors previously and the editing process with Angela was by far the smoothest I have ever experienced.
