Proofreading typically takes place after the interior design of the book is complete.
Proofreading is the last check before the book heads to market. It provides a double check on the copy editor’s work for obvious mistakes and typos, and ensures that the typesetting process didn’t inadvertently alter any sentences or present any visual errors.
Proofreading is one of the most important steps in the book production process, and also one of the least expensive. It is not a substitute for copy editing, it is a critical extra step that separates self-published amateur projects from professionally published books.
