Why you might need a proofreader …

As a keen reader and book reviewer, I read hundreds of books every year, and am often saddened by what seems to be a general decline in the standard of English, not only in self-published works, but also in the output of publishing companies, and in newspapers and magazines. This may be due to declining standards in education, or the prevalence of email, texting and social media, but whatever the reason, it’s more important than ever to have ‘fresh eyes’ check out your work if you wish to self-publish. Many books, which may otherwise have excellent content, receive bad reviews simply because the author has not had his or her work proofread.
