Should I have other people proofread my book, too?

Proofing your Book

The proof is in the pudding—if you're pudding is grammatically incorrect it lessens the value of your book! Make sure you proof your book thoroughly! Writing your book is the first step when you publish. The next step is proofing your book. Don't make the mistake of relying totally on the spell and grammar checker in your word processor, because it can only tell you part of the big picture.

*Let your book sit for a few days or even longer before you begin to proof it. Have a friend or expert proof it too, because they will pick out things your eyes, as the writer, might not have seen.
