Ther's a reson sum things shuld be proofred...

Proofreading is a very important part of the editing process in any written work. Your words say a lot about you. So too do your mistakes.

Spelling and grammar mistakes, along with poor punctuation, could prove the difference between your written work being accepted or not. Don't let your mistakes define you in the written world.

It could be your resumé or cover letter for that job application you are sweating on, your literary magnum opus, a technical paper or essay, or just a letter to a spelling Nazi. You owe it to yourself to make sure that another pair of eyes checks your written work.

Being a proofreader requires a lot of attention to detail. Being a good proofreader requires something akin to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Fortunately for you, here at Valhalla Consulting we pride ourselves on our OCD. We have one of the cleanest staff kitchens in the world.

Our proofreading rates are very affordable and flexible. We can quote as an hourly rate, per page, or for a full project. Why not get in touch and request a personal quote for proofreading your written material? We would love to help you.


If you are looking for a publisher to bring your words or images out into the world, why not drop us a message and we can talk. We would love to take on the challenge of transforming your words and/or images from rough or semi-polished manuscript into a published book that you (and we) can be proud of.

We live in an age where technology can allow us all to become published authors. Valhalla Consulting can help by being able to tame the technology that stands between you and that achievable dream of publishing your work. Confused about any of the following? So were we. But we managed to muddle through, and learn a few things in the process…

  • Getting an ISBN for your book
  • Formatting the book so that it looks good both as an e-book and in print (nearly impossible for poetry; grumble, grumble…)
  • Getting your book up on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBookstore, etc.
  • Setting the margins correctly so the text doesn’t disappear behind your fingers or into the spine when in print
  • Formatting the front and back cover and all of the guff at the front
  • Formatting the book so your print-on-demand printer is happy (bleeds, trims and safe areas; colour profiles; file formats; etc.)
  • How much it will cost
  • Getting published.


Valhalla Consulting is lucky enough to have a real life electrical engineer with over 20 years of experience working in the Utility sector and the control systems industry. As such, we are able to offer a technical writing service that doesn't just write about all of the complicated nerdy stuff, but actually understands a lot of it too. This helps a great deal when gathering information, interviewing technology or subject matter experts, and writing it down in a way that the target audience will understand.
