Did you hear about the writer who hired a musician to proofread their book?

Philip proofread my fantasy novella The Darkest Curse and I was so impressed by his attention to detail and the amount of thought he put into it. He caught some glaring inconsistencies, leaving thoughtful comments to make sure there were no continuity errors, which I really appreciated. He also created a detailed style sheet that will come in very useful for any further books in the series, and checked with me before implementing any major word changes. Philip made me feel at ease with his professionalism, the whole process was smooth and enjoyable, and I look forward to working with him again in future!
