Romance proofreading for the romantic

What romance proofreading catches:

  • spelling mistakes, typos, and inconsistencies
  • missing, incorrect, and inconsistent punctuation
  • problems with the formatting and layout

As a romance proofreader, I want your story to be enjoyed without any distracting errors

Spelling mistakes and punctuation errors can distract readers from your story. If you haven’t worked with a professional editor or proofreader, the chances of reviews marking you down for these mistakes rises. As your proofreader, I support you to publish error-free books.

How we can work together

Step 1: Enquiry

An enquiry helps me work out if we can work together, based on the information you share with me.


  • what your book is about
  • how long your book is
  • when you expect to schedule in proofreading
  • and your approximate budget

helps me to check my availability. You can also ask for a free sample proofread, so you can check if my style of proofreading suits you.

Step 2: Scheduling

Once we’ve decided to work together, I’ll send you a quote based on the information you’ve already told me.

We’ll schedule in a delivery date for you to send me the PDF or Word Doc, as well as a deadline for me to send you the finished proof.

For PDFs, proofreading is done using commenting tools. For Word Docs, proofreading is done using Track Changes.

A deposit of 25% or 50% will be requested before I begin work.

Step 3: Delivery

Once it’s time to send me your book, make sure you send it via email either as an attachment or with a secure link. You can use Google Drive, Dropbox, or similar services for big files.

If you don’t send it on time, I cannot guarantee to make the deadline. You’re welcome to send the file early.

Once I’ve finished my work, I’ll send the final proof as an email attachment or using a secure Proton or Google Drive link.

You’ll then be invoiced for the work done.

My romance proofreading services

If it’s written, I can proofread it. I work with all kinds of romance fiction, including short stories, novellas, full-length novels, and sagas. I’m especially keen to work on fantasy romance, LGBTQ+ romance, YA romance, and erotic fiction.
