How Typeset’s manuscript proofreading service works

Publishing a book is a big investment.

Of course, it’s not just the time and money involved in the actual printing of the book. By the time you’re ready to print it, you’ve spent hundreds of hours, if not thousands of hours, diligently working on the text, honing your ideas and crafting your prose.

So, there’s nothing worse than getting your new book back from the printer (or seeing it in the Amazon store) and then noticing a big fat spelling mistake. And if you think it annoys you as the author, wait until the emails start to flood in from your readers!

Avoid those mistakes by having our proofreader check your manuscript before you hit publish.

Here are some answers to our most commonly asked questions about Typeset’s manuscript proofreading service:

  • We’re happy to sign an NDA. We understand that your manuscript is confidential until your book has been officially released. We care about confidentiality and we’re happy to sign an NDA.
  • We will need to see your manuscript to quote you a price. The quality of writing differs, so rather than charging by word count, we charge our proofreading manuscripts by the hour, at a standard rate. To give you an accurate quote, we’ll need to see the text.
  • We proofread on a Word doc. Send us your manuscript in a Word document. Our proofreader will provide corrections and comments in tracking.
  • We’ll proofread to your style guide. If you have a style guide, we’ll proofread to it. We can also proofread for US, UK or Australian English.

For word-perfect manuscripts, call +1 517 499 5295 or email wendy@typesetcontent.com.

What our customer’s say about Typeset’s proofreading services

“Wendy was fastidious in her reading of my manuscript at both the copy editing and proofreading stages. Not only did she pick up the typos and other errors, she also went deeper to make sure that my points made sense and couldn’t be misinterpreted, commenting why she thought the changes were necessary. It really improved the quality of the end product to have her involved at both stages. On top of all this, she worked hard to accommodate tight time frames, which helped me stay on track for publication.”

Adam Mullett, author, From “No” to “How?”
