Frequently Asked Questions

Global Questions

What is book proofreading?

Book proofreading involves working on several elements in a book draft. It addresses grammar errors, punctuation, spelling, sentence structure, consistency, writing style, formatting, and more. Working on a book is a long and tiring process and if you haven’t edited and proofread your draft, it is difficult to garner attention from literary agents and publishers. It is crucial to work closely with a professional proofreader who addresses all the required elements of editing to polish your manuscript according to industry standards.

Difference between editing & proofreading?

Editing is a broad term and involves a lot of parts concerned with refining a manuscript. It includes developmental editing, structural editing, editorial assessment, and copyediting. All these tasks focus on macro editing of a draft and work on various structural and storytelling components to edit any loopholes in the story.


Proofreading may come under the umbrella of editing or can be considered separately as well. Where editing works on broader issues, proofreading deals with micro editing of the draft content from a grammar and language perspective, while also correcting the format of a manuscript.

How do you select proofreaders for a book?

Each professional editor has a specific set of skills and experiences that make them better suited to serve particular clients and projects. There is no editor or proofreader who is better than the other. Keeping this in mind, here are a few things to consider when finding an editor for your manuscript:


  1. Select proofreaders based on the genres they cover: It’s important to team up with an editor who serves the particular genre you write in. Having an editor experienced in science-fiction working with your romance book probably won’t be a wise idea.
  2. Have a look at their professional experience: Some authors prefer to work with editors who have edited books for famous authors while others work best with editors who have had a successful experience with first-time authors.
  3. Decide the kind of critique you’re willing to receive: When working with an editor, you may receive blunt and straightforward advice and you can also have a frank response from an editor. It depends on what best suits you.
  4. Ensure communication: You can choose the style of communication according to your preference. You can go for either face-to-face meetings for in-depth discussion and feedback or choose to receive weekly updates for only key points of your book editing.

What if I don't like the final draft?

Not a problem. You’re most welcome to contact us and send back your final draft in case you’re not satisfied. We offer unlimited revisions for our valued clients to ensure they’re heard and dealt with carefully. Make sure you communicate your concerns in a timely manner and tell us what changes you want. Once we know we have proofread and formatted the book according to your needs, we’ll send you the revised draft. We stay with you throughout the proofreading process to ensure your satisfaction.

Is your book proofreading service confidential?

An unprofessional editor may share the details of your project to attract new clients and breach your rights in the process. We take pride in saying that all the information and manuscripts you provide us remain strictly confidential.

We follow professional editing and publishing standards to ensure that the excerpts from your book aren’t used elsewhere without your knowledge.
