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.

Our proofreader, Wendy Wood, spent many years proofreading and subediting copy at newspapers before she joined Typeset. She also has Poynter ACES Certificates in Editing and In-Depth Editing, and many years of hands-on experience.
When it comes to spelling and grammar, Wendy has seen absolutely everything — so your book is in safe hands with her.
She is very experienced at proofreading:
Wendy is based in Kansas City in the US, but she is well-versed in Australian, British and American English.
“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.”
