Editorial Services

Proofreading & Copyediting

You’ve already edited your book for content. The plot and characters are perfect and it’s ready for publication. But it needs a final pass to achieve the level of professionalism that will earn you better reviews and ultimately higher sales.

My editorial services are a blend of proofreading and copyediting. I will carefully read through your manuscript to catch typos, missed words, and punctuation errors. I also correct clumsy wording, errors in story continuity, and grammar. The object is not simply to fix commas and spelling, but to polish your material for clarity and flow. All genres accepted.

Corrections Made:

  • Misspelled words
  • Missing letters
  • Punctuation
  • Missing words
  • Extra words
  • Repetitive words
  • Capital letters
  • Confusables and homophones
  • Grammar
  • Formatting
  • Minor errors in continuity
  • Copyright and fair use
  • Rewording for clarity

“Emily did a fantastic job proofreading my book. She took a fine-toothed comb to the manuscript and truly made it shine! I would recommend her in a heartbeat.”                                                                                                                   –Nicole French, author of the Spitfire series

“Emily recently did a proofread for me. I have to say it was above and beyond the call of duty, catching not just typos but also some errors that should have been caught in the copy edit. She was prompt and pleasant to work with.”     –J.R. Tomlin, author of the Black Douglas series.

“Working with Emily Hainsworth on my latest novel has been a joy.  It is always frightening to entrust your work to someone new, and I am so grateful that I took a chance on Emily.  She is responsive, efficient, focused, and encouraging.  Her attention to detail, along with her ability to understand my voice and my story, enabled her to give my book a thorough and effective polish.  Her work and feedback have given me a great boost of confidence as I prepare to release my new characters into the world.  I can’t recommend Emily highly enough, and I will happily work with her again.”     — Award-Winning Indie Author, A.M.
