What does a proofreader do?

A proofreader looks at your designed and formatted novel, in publication layout.

As a proofreader, I look for line- and page-level text and formatting issues and make sure the material is ready to be published: typos, punctuation, and spelling; consistency of margins, indentation, justification; page breaks; placement of illustrations; headers & footers; page numbering and table of contents; glossary format; front matter, back matter, cover copy. All of these things need one last set of eyes before your manuscript– now nearly a book!– goes to press.

I proofread texts in English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

How much will it cost?

I charge by the hour for proofreading, at $35 per hour.

This covers my reading of your publication-ready text in PDF format, flagging issues and making suggestions directly on the document. I will return the document to you with my comments, summarizing the major issues and any overarching observations via email.

Any follow-up conversation, reading, and commentary is also billed at $35 per hour.
