Proofreading for authors 

Author proofreading services

Whether you are a successful author already or are writing a novel for the first time, the need for a professional book editing service is inescapable.

When you write a story, you focus so heavily on the narrative and the development of your characters that you overlook the finer details. For the months or even years that you’re working on the book, you’ll get so close to your fictional world that you’ll struggle to stand back and observe the work objectively, as a whole, and be able to tell which bits work and which bits need work.

It’s also surprisingly hard to spot grammatical errors in your own writing. This is true even when writing a short document like a CV, so think how difficult it must be to proofread your own 200,000-word novel!

Therefore the proofreading process is a key part of writing a book. We provide the extra pair of eyes required to spot the mistakes and, in the editor’s case, any possible weaknesses in your writing.

In the words of our author proofreading clients…

Kofo Obasanjo-Blackshire, Author, Pillars of Statecraft

“”I engaged Full Proof for proofreading and eventually editing when the relationship with the original editor I’d been working with became untenable due to reliability, timeliness, accuracy and other issues. The team at Full Proof were a breath of fresh air and epitomised professionalism. The attention to detail is second to none, as is the speed of responsiveness … Competitively priced, decent human beings and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend their service.

Rebecca Phillipson, Children's Author

“I approached Nick to help me with my children’s book and all expectations were excelled! I felt Nick was really personal and passionate from the very beginning, he gave a super efficient service at a brilliant price! My story is now with my illustrator and I cannot wait to see the finished result. Thanks so much Nick. I deffo recommend Full Proof.”

Dominic Hodgson, World's #1 Pet Business Coach

“It’s refreshing to receive such a swift and supremely professional service, and at a reasonable cost too. So, is this the perfect go-to company for proofreading? Absolutely.”
