The Share Your Story Team love introducing new and upcoming authors to our community, as well as providing tips and recommendations for services which will help you grow as an author – or just ways to make your life a lot easier!

Proofreading is one of those things which can be tedious, and we understand that after you have read your transcript a zillion times, it is almost impossible to see the words clearly anymore and it is easy to miss typos, grammatical errors and formatting issues.

So, we are excited to introduce Felicity Baker-Schaefer, the creator of Dear Proofreader.

Felicity offers professional proofreading services to anyone who produces written text in our modern world, including – but not limited to – creative entrepreneurs, bloggers, new and self-published authors, content creators, magazines and websites.

Sounds like a service which could make your life a little easier, as well as ensuring your transcripts are submitted without any mistakes? Here’s how Felicity can help you (and keep reading, as there is a discount code for the Share Your Story Community down the bottom):

Dear Proofreader, does this sound write?

Hi, my name is Felicity and I’ve been attending Share Your Story workshops for the last couple of years. While I love writing, my true passion is reading, and I get really frustrated when I see typos or errors that look super obvious to me. How can anyone miss those?! But as a writer I’ve discovered how easy it is for little mistakes to worm their way into your text – and I’ve also discovered how expensive and challenging it can be to hire someone to be another set of eyes.

So, I’ve decided to try my hand at starting my own small business, Dear Proofreader. My goal is to work with writers and other creatives who may be just starting out, or are looking for an affordable proofreading service to do a final spit-and-polish on their work, catching any pesky little typos or other errors that may have been missed during previous edits.

Even a small mistake – an incorrectly spelled word or typo, or little inconsistencies in the text – can have a big impact on your readers, and even more so on your potential clients. I have a knack for spotting these mistakes, and would love the chance to work with you to take your written work from good to great!

Because I’m just starting out, I’ve decided to offer my services at a reduced rate for the Share Your Store Community. If you’re interested, you can visit my website at and get in touch with me for a free quote. Use the code #shareyourstory so you don’t miss out on the discount.

I can’t wait to get started!
