Proofreading is usually the last step on your author journey. It is something you can attempt yourself or if you have a friend or relative with a keen eye for detail they might be able to assist. Proofreading involves a thorough check for errors in grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting in your final manuscript. Proofreading is charged at £250 for the first 80k words and £2 per 1k words over that length. This usually takes between 1-2 weeks.
