Why Do I Need a Proofreader?

Mistakes are everywhere, regardless of whether the text is released through a traditional publisher or through indie avenues. While there are other proofreading options available such as paid programs or even listening to Microsoft Word read it aloud to you, there is something helpful about having more than one set of eyes on it. We tend to overlook our own errors but more easily see the errors others make. Besides, a program might catch minor mistakes, but it cannot understand things like connotation or when breaking a writing rule for effect is, in fact, allowed.

I love supporting authors—especially indie authors. That is why I have launched this affordable proofreading option, in hopes of making your work shine even brighter.
