Proofreading

I offer freelance proofreading for general issues: typos, grammar issues, formatting issues (italics, quotes, et cetera), and ensuring consistency (such as names and information given throughout). My goal is to provide a high-quality service at an affordable rate, especially geared toward independent authors publishing e-books.

How It Works

You send me the Microsoft Word document of your manuscript and I make the changes myself in the Microsoft Word document using the tracking feature. If there is an entire sentence that is awkward or reads like something has been left out, I will contact you to get your input. I will also seek your input for any other questionable items. Once finished, I will send you a revised copy of the Microsoft Word document with the changes not yet accepted and a final version of the Microsoft Word document with all the changes accepted. This way you can look at and approve the changes individually, or you have the completed document already at your disposal.

My preferred payment method is PayPal, but I also accept payment by Dwolla. Fifty percent of the project total is paid up front, and the balance is due after completion of the project. I understand this is a major investment. If you would like, I'd be happy to take a look at the first 1,500 words of your manuscript and provide you a sample of my work.

If you are interested in my service, please contact me via e-mail (hocksediting (at) gmail (dot) com) for current rate information and an estimated completion date, along with any other questions you may have.
