Having a second pair of eyes at your disposal never hurts, especially when those eyes belong to one of our knowledgeable and experienced team members. The proofreading and editing stages are extremely vital to ensuring the quality of your writing is the best it can be. Shandon Publishing’s services cover all aspects of proofreading and editing.
That means we offer:
- A thorough proofread: Here, our team will fix any errors, typos, spelling mistakes, syntactical mistakes, or grammatical inconsistencies.
- Honest, expert feedback on the book: This will include objective advice and support on things like style, structure, pace, tone, and readability. We’ll consult with you on a personal basis to help you get the most out of your writing.
- A full professional edit: We’ll help turn your manuscript into something professional and publishing-ready by helping you with page layout, font, lettering size, and everything else that is required to get your book ready to be sent out into the world.
Computer programs and grammar-savvy friends are great for checking emails and less important documents for clarity and spelling errors. However, they should never be viewed as a suitable replacement for a methodical professional with years of experience behind them. The proofreading and editing stages are often underestimated by many writers who view them as quick and easy steps to check off their to-do list when they feel that their current work is nearing completion—this could not be further from the truth.
Our knowledgeable staff will focus on your writing at the word and sentence level to eliminate errors and consider more appropriate word choices. The Shandon Publishing team will pose crucial questions: Does the word choice and writing style match your project’s aim? Is the format of the document correct and consistent? Are there any punctuation issues, such as utilising quotation marks correctly? Do the point-of-view and voice feel appropriate for a piece of writing? Your Shandon Publishing representative will also address the tone and flow of your project and pose critical questions that you may have forgotten to ask yourself in earlier writing stages.
If you’ve just finished the first draft of your book and aren’t sure what the next step is, you can turn to us, and we’ll help you with all of your proofreading and editing needs. Save yourself time and money with our proofreading and editing service. Focus solely on your creative ideas and leave the busywork to us. Don’t make the mistake of neglecting these stages only to discover that the published work you’ve printed contains several spelling and formatting issues. Leave it to us–and relax!
