Proofreading

Proofreading involves finding formatting and grammatical errors in your finished  document. Proofreading is different from copy editing or line editing. It is a final inspection before your book goes to print. Grammarly and Word’s built-in grammar checker can both yield unreliable and unprofessional results.  I am an experienced and diligent proofreader, and my rate of accuracy exceeds publishing industry standards. I use the guidelines recommended by The Chicago Manual of Style.
