All authors should read their book aloud. By doing so, you’ll catch the sloppy mistakes and funky wording issues. But you’ll miss the stuff that copy editors, like BC, search for: small grammatical rules that native English speakers really have no idea even exist.
The kinds of mistakes copy editors catch aren’t life-threatening, but they are the ones you’ve often caught yourself finding in books you’ve read that make you wonder just how something like that was missed. These mistakes are the difference between a professional book and one that comes across as amateur. Don’t be a rank, arrogant amateur. Hire BC to copy edit your book.
