Even if you’re an excellent writer it’s easy to construct sentences that are difficult to follow, use more words than necessary or target the wrong audience.


This service includes all proofreading checks and improves the following:

  • Quality of word usage and flow of text.
  • Sentence and paragraph structure. 
  • Ensures text is concise and removes redundant wording.
  • Awkward phrasing is revised without losing the author's voice and style.

​Having your work proofread by a fresh pair of trained eyes will avoid costly mistakes slipping through that could affect you financially, reviews, brand reputation or your grade.


This service corrects the following:

  • Spelling mistakes and typos.
  • Punctuation errors.
  • Grammar errors.
  • Consistency of tense.
  • Subject–verb agreement.
  • Capitalisation and hyphenation errors.
  • Dialogue formatting in fiction works.

 I can professionally format your fiction or non-fiction book ready to upload onto Amazon Kindle or apply specific requirements if you are using another publishing platform.


  • Amend font, line spacing and margin indentations.
  • Removal of tabs and inconsistent formatting.
  • Formatting of chapter breaks and chapter titles.
  • Addition of table of contents.
  • Addition of front matter (front pages).

Pricing is dependent on subject matter, word count, required turnaround time and the amount of proofreading or editing required. I accept payment by debit card, credit card, Paypal account and bank transfer. See Terms and Conditions for more information..
