Proofreading Services :
We provide outstanding proofreading support by an experienced member of our staff. Proofreading comes at the end of the publication cycle. It's the final check before the book is printed or, in the case of eBooks, before it is formatted and sent to distributors. It is intended to pick up the final typos, spelling mistakes, and to correct inconsistencies. Proofreading services include spelling, grammar and punctuation along with inconsistency of style. The task of the proofer is not revision, but correction ó making sure that no typographical errors remain in the manuscript.

Scenebreaks :
Scenebreaks can be anything the author wants. Many times it is a series of astrerics. Some authors like to use graphics as scenebreaks. I have a collection of scenebreaks available for $10.00 each. Once you buy one, you can put it in as many of your books as you want, without additional costs. If you have one you need made and then used, I can usually get that done for the same price.
