Is your content or novel nearly ready for publication but in need of proofreading for the last quality check?

I can proofread your work to a high level of quality and remove:

  • Spelling mistakes
  • Typos
  • Grammatical errors
  • Ambiguities
  • Inconsistencies

Excessive changes at this stage can be costly, so I strive to maintain a balance between correcting mistakes and unnecessary rewrites. I have over three years of publishing and editorial experience, so I am no stranger to maintaining consistency and attention to detail.

I can work on paper, PDF (PDF markup tools) and Microsoft Word (Track Changes).

When working with fiction, my specialities are Young Adult and genre fiction (including contemporary, romance, thriller, sci-fi and fantasy). I read across most genres, though, so feel free to query me about your project, regardless of genre!

If you are unsure about the difference between copyediting and proofreading, the CIEP has compiled FAQs that you might find useful.

What clients have said…

I hired Sofia to proofread my book Scottish Myths & Legends. She was a joy to work with. Her website gave me a good picture of her interests and experience, and her communication and turnaround were very speedy. The work itself was excellent and very competitively priced. I’ll definitely be working with her on my next project.

‘Sofia did an extremely thorough job of proofreading my manuscript and went above and beyond my expectations. I found her very professional in all communications and happy to answer any queries I had throughout the ‘debriefing’ period afterwards. As a result of such excellent attention to detail, and having learned much in the process of those ‘final edits’, I now have a book I am really proud of and can’t wait to publish it! I am looking forward to working with Sofia again on my next book… and would highly recommend her skills in the field.’
