Your Manuscript is Complete but You Need it Checked Before You Publish

The precious manuscript or important document you've worked so hard on is finished, but you want to be certain that it's as professional and as error-free as it can be before you present it to the public.

You don't want the time, effort and passion that's gone into your work to be undermined by sloppy presentation and identifiable errors. You want your work to be respected and recognised as high quality and professional. 

When I proofread your work I will take the time to check it thoroughly. I'm familar with the common mistakes and pitfalls of English language usage. I will find the typos, misspelled words, errant punctuation marks and off-track formatting issues. I'll work methodically through a comprehensive checklist to make sure no item is left unexamined.

You'll have a professional manuscript or document that you can present or publish with confidence and pride. 

 

How my Proofread will help you Publish with Confidence 

 

Step1

Tell Me What You Need and Book Your Proofread

Get in touch with me and complete a form, giving me the details of your manuscript or document and relevant information. I'll need to know what type of document or manuscript you want checked and how big it is. For example, is it a lengthy novel or a short report? I'll need to know your deadline for completion of the proofread, and whether you'll require subsequent revisions. There will be questions about other helpful things I'll need to know: Who is the audience for your work?  What format is the document in? Do you have a style guide preference? 

Once we've established what you need, I'll confirm your booking.

What these Authors Say about Me

Tom E. Moffatt Author of Barking Mad
I highly recommend The Story Polisher. My manuscript had been through several edits and proofreads, and despite being quietly confident that there were no mistakes, I thought I’d get one more pair of eyes to go over it. And I’m so glad I did! The Story Polisher found four or five glaring errors that were missed by other professionals, as well as far too many inconsistencies and formatting issues. She finished the whole job within 48-hours, her communication was exceptional and the price very reasonable. I will certainly be getting all my manuscripts polished from now on.

I recommend having your manuscript brought to life by Vicki. Her thoughtful suggestions will enhance your literary work. She is a skilled and accurate proof reader: thorough, meticulous and efficient. You'll find her to be knowledgeable, reliable, and encouraging. Her support, and contributions to the Rotorua Writers Group have been valuable, and appreciated by our members.

I've had Vicki critique some of my writing. Her feedback has always been spot-on, she's caught all kinds of mistakes, and offered suggestions on pacing, tension, and character development -- and better still, she offered honest feedback in a way that left me feeling energised and ready to tackle those edits. I love working with her. I was fortunate enough to work with Vicki on formatting an anthology for a local writers group. Her professionalism in making sure that their ebook was formatted correctly was second-to-none. She offered suggestions, listened to feedback, and made sure that the manuscript shined and was free of any errors. Can't recommend her enough.
