Proofreading and copy-editing books for publishers

What I can do for you

If you are a publisher of academic or art books, I can ensure that your manuscript:

  • Is free of errors
  • Is written in a consistent style and voice
  • Follows the house style
  • Follows the required referencing style
  • Contains correctly formatted references
  • Is consistent throughout
