Hiring a proofreader for my book

Proofreading takes care of vital issues like sentence flow, structure of paragraphs, choice of words, overall story presentation, and consistency of tone. Unlike a developmental editor who will primarily focus on your manuscript’s content, a proofreader takes care of punctuation, spelling, grammar, structural cogence, etc.

Addition to details

Wonder why you end up missing small typos in your cherished manuscript? Worry not, it’s not something unique to you. As an author who focuses on reading and revising, your brain is hard-wired to focus on the big picture – be it characterization, twists in plots, or the centrality of your argument.

This means when you’re so involved in the process of creating a piece of art, your brain actually ends up skipping typos, spelling issue, or minor grammatical anomalies of your creation because the emphasis is on what it thinks matters most. This is precisely why you need a professional book proofreading service to ensure there are no loose ends and all your bases are covered.

Frequently Asked Questions

Although the turnaround time of proofreading is typically less than, for example, copy editing, you would do well not to want to rush through this process. This is because in essence, the process of proofreading is deliberate, precise, and slow since a proofreader is required to focus on each word and sentence to spot easy-to-miss errors and other anomalies. However, in case you’ve a deadline to meet, we don’t mind walking the extra mile.
Yes, there is. Although these terms are used interchangeably, editing and proofreading are not the same. Book editing (copyediting, developmental editing, line editing, etc.) pertains to the process of writing a book. After writing your story, you hand it over to the editor who shares feedback on issues like characterization, pacing, structure, plot, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure, etc. This manuscript is then handed back to you so that you can work on it on the basis of the feedback. On the other hand, proofreading is about spotting lingering misspellings, typos, and grammatical errors that are easy to overlook, regardless the thoroughness with which you’ve had your manuscript revised or edited. Typically, proofreading is the last thing before you send the book for publication.
Proofreading is paramount because readers as well as reviewers commonly criticize books for their spelling/grammar errors, which means that no matter what it costs, it will be nowhere close to the cost you end up paying AFTER your book is published and panned for such errors. Consider proofreading as a once-in-a-lifetime investment in your brand and your credibility that can be damaged with the incalculable cost of oversight.
Well, the rates vary depending on the level of editing needed by your books. Some editors choose to charge based on the hours they put in while working on a manuscript, which basically means you don’t get the complete picture about how much the editing process will cost till it is over. At TrueEditors, we charge by the word because this allows you to know exactly what your project costs before we begin the work. Our rates can vary based on the intensiveness of the editing process and the time an editor will need to put in while working on the project. It is for this reason that proofreading is cheaper than a copyedit/line edit. Information about the rates of all our offerings can be seen here.
While it is tempting to use it, trusting artificial intelligence for something as important as a book can turn out to be an egregious mistake. Automated grammar/spelling checkers, regardless of whether they are online or form part of a word processor, are far less effective than human proofreaders when it comes to identifying errors. This is an area where humans will continue to outperform computers due to their ability to have foresight and understand things in the proper context.
Multiple rounds of editing are a highly recommended process that helps ensure that the manuscript is as well-written and grammatically perfect as possible to. Believe it or not, the majority of published books are edited 7-9 times before being published, which is why we offer some special editorial packages whereby we cover multiple editing rounds at a significant discount.
