PROOFREADING

the final stage in the editing process

While a single typo might jog your readers’ attention for only a second, multiple errors can be distracting enough to make them put a book down. A quality proofread is your best chance at keeping your readers fully immersed in your work by eliminating distractions and making the text as polished as possible.

Areas of focus in a proofread:

  • Punctuation

  • Capitalization

  • Hyphenation

  • Grammar

  • Spelling

  • Usage

  • Pagination

  • Chapter sequencing

  • Extraneous spaces and line breaks

  • Consistency in design of text and visual elements

  • Consistency in style (e.g., italicization, quotation marks)

Please note that proofreading is the final step after editing—it is not a substitute for editing.
