Proofreading & Copyediting Services

"Juli Burgett came highly recommended to me by a fellow author. She was one of my final proofreaders, and I'm so grateful I found her. Not only was she comfortable reading my dark romance (a genre not everyone will read), but she also took the time to fact check certain things that had been missed by everyone I'd hired before her. Needless to say, my manuscript is much cleaner because of Juli, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone who would like their manuscript to be as polished and professional as possible."

What I can do...

I hate mistakes. Details? Those I love. And, I am a bit of a perfectionist. Finding typos is my fun.

You've done the hard work; let me make make it shine.

I'm a fiction lover, but am happy to work with any type, style, or genre of writing. From blog posts to books to newsletters to websites. Anything that has words, send it my way.

When I proofread I look for mistakes in or with grammar, spelling, capitalization, punctuation, homophones, spacing, and overall formatting consistency. 

This is usually one of the last steps before publishing.

 

When I copyedit I do all of the above, plus suggest word substitutions, sentence structure changes, and sentence or paragraph rewrites to improve the readability of your writing. All of this while keeping your writing sounding like, well, you.

 

I generally refer to the Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster Dictionary along with other resources when working. If you have other resources or style guides you would like me to use, I will be happy to oblige. You will get nothing but a personal experience with me as a part of your creative team.

 

How much it costs...

Each and every job is different based on content, page layout, word count, etc. Contact me and we can discuss the project and come to an agreement based on your needs and the turnaround time required. My basic base rate is $1 per page for proofreading and $2 per page for copyediting based on 250 words per page.

Rush jobs will require 50% deposit.

I will invoice upon completion and the balance will be due upon delivery.

 

 

About me...

I remember laying on the floor with my mom reading to me when I was young, before I started kindergarten, and "zoo" being the first word I unlocked. I remember laughing every time we came to that lovely little word, so happy that I could pick it out on the page. I imagine that is where my love of reading first started (thanks, Mom!), and it has never waned.

 

I've spent most of my adult years in jobs where I read and compose various reports, emails, memos, signs, and instructions. I write and rewrite, making sure everything is perfect. I have experience with graphic design and page layout and have an eagle eye for formatting consistency. I would love to use my experience and skills to help your writing be the best it can possibly be. 

 

I currently reside in New Mexico, with my sweet dog, Booker (yes, his name stems from my love of books!), where I enjoy spending time with family and friends, travel, photography, and of course, reading.

 

What they say...

"I had Juli do the final proof before sending a restaurant menu to the printer. She found little things that I could no longer see after spending hours designing it. It put my mind at ease sending it off to the printer after making the corrections Juli found." 

- Tania Tapia

Graphic Designer

"When I wrote my book, all my energy went into the content of the book. By the time it came to the details I missed many small mistakes. Juli saved me much time and heartache with her thorough proofreading. She caught many things that I clearly missed, and beyond spotting grammatical mistakes she helped me identify layout and consistency issues.

 

I'm absolutely delighted with her work because now I feel my book has a more professional feel and my readers will have a better reading experience. "

"Juli caught errors that even my editor and first proofreader missed. I would absolutely recommend her and will be using her again."
