Your Work Needs Professional Book Proofreading and Editing

Why do all great authors need editors to proofread their books? Here are three main reasons:

  1. You’re too familiar with your book. If you’ve labored over your book for months or years, you are no longer able to approach the revision process with the objective perspective it requires. This makes you more likely to overlook mistakes, since you already understand what you’re trying to say.
  2. To err is human. Even the most competent and careful writers make mistakes, especially after the stress and exhaustion that follows months of planning, researching, and writing.
  3. The English language is complex. It has thousands of rules and idiosyncrasies, and only a highly experienced and qualified editor has the training and skills needed to proofread your book with precision.

Unfortunately, most publishers and agents won’t even finish reading a manuscript if they encounter errors in copy and style. Without proper book proofreading and editing, your hard work may be tossed aside. If you are self-publishing, mistakes in your writing can detract from the integrity of your work. Readers may not take your book seriously if it’s cluttered with errors.

Don’t let avoidable mistakes prevent your book from being published and your voice from being heard. Submit your manuscript to our professional book proofreading and editing team.
