What you get with this Hourlie

***What I can do***

The first 5,000 words of your story will be proofread within 5 working days. Short stories and book submissions are also welcome. If your story, short story, or book submission is over 5,000 words then please get in touch.

I’m a methodical and reliable proofreader with great attention-to-detail.

I will read for sense, consistency, and error and I will record all decisions and items to check in a style sheet which can then be sent to you to help make consistent the capitalisation, hyphenation, and spelling decisions, among others, even after the proofread writing has been sent to you.

I will make sure names and settings are consistently spelt, capitalised, or hyphenated; times and dates are consistent within your story; and formatting and presentation are correct, easy on the eye, and consistent.

If there are any issues I will send you a message if it’s urgent or I’ll mark them on the document in comment bubbles for your attention. I will send your work back to you in a Microsoft Word document in two versions: one version with Track Changes on so you can see where I have made my changes, one with comments only, and a final complete version.
