Which base? First base? Third base?

If you’re not sure, don’t risk it. We offer professional proofreading at just 1.5 cents per word. Our editing is guaranteed too: if we miss anything, we’ll remake your print book PDF or eBook fast and free.

Nothing deflates a book or story like typos. The best book design, the most beautiful cover, can’t overcome careless writing. It just says you don’t care. And if you don’t care, why should the reader?

You don’t have to pay for proofreading. Certainly you have a friend around who loves being a know-it-all about spelling. Just ask. Buy ’em a pizza, or whatever.

And if you (like me) are the know-it-all grammar type, it’s still a good idea to ask for help. Because you know what it’s supposed to say, our brain often does the correction automatically, making us blind to our own typo. That is, until someone points it out. Then it’s painfully obvious.

You worked hard writing your book. Protect it with a good round of proofreading, then a professional book design.
