Proofreading is the last step you should take before publishing or otherwise finalizing your writing. Writers and editors sometimes don’t see their own mistakes; they know what they intended to write, so that’s what they see. Or, errors may have entered the manuscript as part of preparation for publishing. As a proofreader, I’ll review your writing from an outsider’s perspective, looking for mistakes in grammar, punctuation, and spelling. While these things may not stand out to someone who is intimately familiar with the project, like you and your editor, they do stand out to others, including your readers. Let me catch them before your readers do!

I’ll make sure your writing looks polished and professional with none of those lingering, easily overlooked errors. Your readers will be able to stay connected to the material without distraction, which will help them be receptive to your story or message.

We hired Crystal to proofread the manuscript for my first fictional novel. We are really happy with her work. Crystal was professional, knowledgeable, and thorough. Crystal kept me informed with progress on my manuscript and completed her review on time and with quality.

Crystal goes above and beyond. She proofread my novella and gave it the final polish it needed, along with developmental suggestions which were a great help. She's professional, enthusiastic and a pleasure to work with. Definitely recommended! ​
