Good fiction, especially Christian fiction, is my passion. As a reader, I am most interested in reading a good story, not in the grammatical correctness of the sentences. But often when I am reading, I find errors. These are not usually spelling errors, but using the wrong word (heroine vs. heroin), factual errors (Windsor Palace vs. Windor Castle) or typographical errors.
Some errors are amusing, some are annoying - but too many will take me out of the story, will affect my enjoyment and may well be commented on in a review. These errors might be in self-published fiction, but all too often I find them in traditionally-published books too. Why? Apparently, this is because the publishing houses don't edit books like they used to. If your publisher is not going to edit your book and correct your mistakes, then someone else has to.
As I said, Christian fiction is my passion. My personal library has hundreds of books, across all genres. I understand what sells, what readers want, and I can share that knowledge with you. As your fiction proofreader or editor, my job is to help you make your manuscript better, to polish it so you tell your story in the best way possible so that the reader is caught up in your characters and plot, not your errors.
