Over the last couple of years I've received a great many positive comments about my proofreading eBook. Liberally sprinkled among these remarks have, of course, been a few perfectly reasonable criticisms.
The third edition of The No-Nonsense Proofreading Course addresses all (I hope) of these concerns.
I now have an entire chapter devoted to calculating how much you should charge your customers, including an easy-to-use formula.
The chapter on proofreading symbols has been substantially expanded, and now includes examples of the proofreading symbols 'in action'.
The chapter on setting up your proofreading business has been updated to include the latest freelance marketplaces and to factor-in Google's latest algorithm changes to give your website a fighting chance in the search-engine results.
I've emailed a copy of the third edition to every customer who has bought my proofreading course in the last 12 months or so. Due to spam laws, I can't actually email anyone who bought the book before that time as they would legally be considered a 'lapsed account'.
However, if you bought the eBook at any time and can provide proof of purchase (a PayPal reference number or even the email address of the PayPal account you used to purchase the eBook), I will gladly send you a link to download the course free of charge.
I'm really pleased with how the third edition of The No-Nonsense Proofreading Course has turned out. I hope you will like it, too.
I always try to make these blog entries useful and entertaining. I try to avoid self-promotion. But this time, I can't resist. Sometimes, you've just got to boast.
The No-Nonsense Proofreading Course now comes with over 1,000 pages of give-aways.
Over 1,000 pages!
There. I just needed to let that out.
I feel much better now.
Oh, here's a picture:
“I am one of those many fools who paid a huge amount of money for a useless course. This book... has opened so many doors for me. I now look on Mike as my mentor as I embark on a career. Thank you Mike.”
Emma Steel, Proofreader and International Structural Editor.
“ I thoroughly enjoyed the course and am so glad that I decided to take it... the whole experience was invaluable. My proofreading service is now well established and your course played no small part in getting it off the ground.”

“I'd just like to thank you first of all for writing such a great, straight forward eBook, and then going above and beyond what I would even expect as a customer by providing us, completely free of charge, updated versions months later!”
Rachel Gee, Trainee Proofreader.
“What can I say? Worth every penny and then some! God Bless! This a fabulous course.”
