Self Publishing Consultants
It's impossible to proof your own work; you tend to overlook mistakes of all types. Your mind subconsciously fills in what it thinks should be there, and your conscious appraisal is none the wiser.
A manuscript should be noticed for its content and quality. The writer is too close to the material to be objective. A professional book editor can recognize the repetitions, inconsistencies, faulty logic, and other problems that are often overlooked by the writer.
In short, the final part of the writing process is having a professional book editor and proofreader (not your neighbors or your kid's English teacher) polish the manuscript before it is offered to an agent or publisher.*
No editor can guarantee publication, but if you want your work to have the best chance of being read and considered seriously—and if you are open to other opinions about your work—we'll be glad to help you work toward that goal.
