proof・read \ˈprüf-ˌrēd\ transitive verb: to read and mark corrections in (something, such as a proof)
I provide final proofreading for non-fiction, short stories, novellas, and novels in multiple genres. Proofreading means various things to lots of people. My services address only errors in:
- punctuation and grammar
