Little mistakes can sink a book
In the publishing world, proofreading is the last stage prior to the work going to the printers. It’s a necessary element for a clean manuscript.
Unlike copy editing, proofreading offers no reflections on structural elements or style. This process looks solely at grammatical issues and consistency. Spelling mistakes and failure to be consistent will get your work rejected instantly, so it’s vital to make certain there aren’t any errors in your project, whether it’s fiction, memoir, academic, or articles.
