"Shelley is a dream to work with!!  She’s fast, affordable, nice, has met every deadline I’ve squeezed her into, does amazing work and catches tons of problems. I’ve kind of become obsessed with her proofreading skills, so I’ve gone to her with every story I’ve written since I first discovered her services, and the best part yet, she hasn’t grown tired of me yet!"

Shelley's Proofreading 

    2 Book Lovers Reviews

Proofreading is the final stage in getting your book ready for publication. It is done after the book has been edited and revised.

I have over eight years of experience in proofreading. I will proofread any genre and document size. I try to go above and beyond for my clients. I don’t simply read your text line by line, I sit down and give it a thorough read-through, going over it with a fine-tooth comb. You want to put out your best work, and I want to help you succeed. Let’s make your novel shine!

Proofreading Checklist

- Spelling errors

- Misused words

- Missing words

- Capitalization

- Homophone confusion (there, they’re, their)

- Misplaced, misused, and missing punctuation

- Inconsistencies (stylistic, tenses, names)

The proofreading is done with a Word document, using the “Track Changes” option. 

The turnaround for a proofread is dependent on the word count of the document, however, I am more than willing to work around your schedule.


All prices are in U.S. dollars.

- $0.005 per word.  For 50,000 words, it would be $250.00.

- Synopsis is a flat rate of $5.00.

Payment Method

- PayPal

If you would like to schedule a proofread or if you have any questions about this service, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

I’m looking forward to working with you.
