Proofreading is by far the most important part of presenting any publication to the general populace. It is imperative that every aspect of a written submission is inspected for errors; these can range from grammatical, spelling, layout, font and typesetting. Unfortunately when an author is rather close to their work, it is quite common to miss glaringly obvious mistakes that may perhaps be noted by a proofer within seconds of scanning the text. Therefore, at Shadow Ink Press we offer this service to those individuals seeking a trained eye to make one final sweep of their written work.
The process for proofreading is as follows:
Please consider that if you do complete the Proofreading process with Shadow Ink Press, we’d also be more than happy to assist you with your typesetting, cover design and publishing needs. We also make it our mission to ensure our clients are attended to at every step of the way, so if at any time you need further clarification regarding any stage of any product process with this company, our friendly staff will always be happy to assist.
We also understand that time constraints are of constant concern for any busy author, thus we make your manuscript our priority and will discuss possible time frames required in order to complete a proofread within a timely fashion. However, there are the occasional extenuating circumstances which will naturally be disclosed to the author either before the process begins or as soon as possible so as not to cause unnecessary delays.
