Editing and Proofreading Services for Authors

View a Sample of Our Editing and Proofreading

Our two-round editing process is tailored to your unique requirements as a writer.

In the first round of editing, your manuscript is carefully proofread to ensure it is free of any errors in the grammar, punctuation, spelling, typography, and formatting. Your editor also uses the first round as an opportunity to closely read your draft from start to finish, preparing for the second round of editing.

In the second round, your editor refines the clarity, sentence structure, diction, coherence, flow, and consistency of your work, aiming to bring out your unique style. The editor makes detailed comments to give you constructive feedback on the character development, plot structure, point of view, and more (for fiction), and on the organisation, tone, and the strength of your arguments (for non-fiction). In the final step, the editor rechecks your entire
manuscript to eliminate any lingering errors in the proofreading, formatting, or consistency.

We then deliver your polished, beautifully edited document!

This is the first book I have written and had been searching for a company to proofread my manuscript. I wanted to ensure it went into the right hands. And I have no regrets choosing PaperTrue. The work was completed within the stated time frame and the notes were very clear and constructive. I would most certainly recommend them as a trusted, friendly and reliable company to work with. Richard was my first point of contact from the useful pop-up chat on their user-friendly website. He answered all the questions I had and was very professional. I received my manuscript back from Rebecca from the editing team. Her comments were very professional and helpful in adding the necessary tweaks to improve my manuscript effectively. Thanks to Papertrue I am well and truly on my way to publishing my first book and would come back again should I write a second.
I was totally amazed at how good they were. It definitely showed all the areas where I had many errors that myself did not notice. And that was after many times of revising my manuscript. I hope to learn a lot from where I've gone wrong. It's much easier to see from another angle. Rather than revising a thousand times and not noticing any major errors. I will be editing my work more carefully with a lot more thought into how paragraph and sentence is written. And so from the sample edit I shall be using their services, to hopefully get a fully acceptable and well published book out there. Can't wait. Thank you to the Papertrue team.

Dear Rebecca (from Paper True)

I have spent the last month editing my first novel 'Sunspots', and I have now finally made all the adjustments that you told me to make. I took every single piece of advice you gave me to improve my work. I would just like to say thank you so much for the incredible job you have done. It is clear you must have worked incredibly hard into the early hours to get my book back to me in the time frame you did. Thank you so much for your critique. Up until I read your summary of what you thought of the content of my book, I had no idea how good it was. For you to call it 'beautiful' and a potential 'masterpiece', it has really given me the confidence to try and get my novel published. Even though I know the stats are against me, I now have the determination going forward. You came up with so many excellent ideas for improving 'Sunspots'. I think you have turned a good book into a great book. It was worth every penny of the fee that I paid. I took a risk and it really paid off. It was apparent that you must have read my book all the way through at least twice.
If you have any hints or tips on how to improve my chances of getting a publisher please let me know. I'd be willing to negotiate a fee for any extra help or knowledge you have.

I would highly recommend yourself and 'Paper True' to anyone who has spent a large chunk of their life writing a novel or any other piece of work. I made some stipulations regarding the kind of person I wanted to critique my work before I handed over the fee. I feel I was rewarded with the exact right person

Kind regards

PaperTrue is my partner in writing. I've been using it for a month now as I write a one-hour TV pilot. Each time I finish an act I submit it to PaperTrue. Within 2 days I receive CONSTRUCTIVE, valuable feedback that really helps me craft the story I am trying to tell. I've used other services that simply told me what was wrong with my writing but didn't make any recommendations on how to fix it. PaperTrue editors (I use Rebecca) give you the solutions.
