Standing out on the shelves of a seemingly endless virtual bookstore begins with quality. The advent of electronic publishing has lowered the bar to entry for authors around the world, but all too often standards have been unwittingly lowered with it. Making the most of the opportunities of a digital age requires the ability to pair cutting-edge ideas and approaches with the time-honored attention to detail that has helped elevate the written word to the pinnacle of human communication. Authors who can use the conventions of grammar and punctuation to their advantage address their readers from a position of strength, earning immediate credibility by clearly conveying their respect for their readers.
However, the creative process can be a fluid one, carrying authors along just as readers will be. In the heat of the written moment, a slavish attention to formalities can drain a manuscript of life, leaving it antiseptic and cold. Instead of being sidetracked by the niceties of punctuation and spelling, save your inspiration for the things only you can do and ask Polished Paper to help you fill in the grammatical gaps in your manuscript before you publish it. You’ll be able to focus on your original vision, confident that your readers will be getting the best of both worlds as you pair the convenience of electronic reading with the finer touches they’ve come to expect from truly high-quality writing.
Perhaps most notably, your proofreader can spot hard-to-find errors before your readers do while also identifying repetitive or confusing passages for your review. In the process, you’ll get a reader’s perspective on your manuscript at a stage when you can still strengthen your work and solidify your original vision. And when you release your book to the world, you’ll be able to do so proudly, knowing that both your message and your esteem for your readers are inscribed on every page.
