Special thanks to Hayley Williams for her immaculate contribution towards my children’s book. Her attention to detail is remarkable and her input on my manuscript invaluable. Hayley is a joy to work with, and came highly recommended from a trusted source in the field. In addition to her keen perception, Hayley also displays warmth, professionalism, excellent communication and customer service skills. I’m sure I shall seek out her services very soon. Highly recommended.
Mike Allen, Author, 'Greatest Day on Earth'
Hayley was a dream to work with. We had a large document that needed proofreading on quite a quick turnaround. From the moment we engaged Hayley she was helpful and insightful. We use the Adobe suite and Hayley provided us the notes in a way we could import into the software directly saving our designer time in making the corrections. Hayley went above and beyond and explained the grammatical rule behind a common mistake throughout our document helping us to avoid this in the future. She provided the final proofreading ahead of schedule and offered to look over further drafts for us if required.
Tim Brennan, Communications Manager, Safe Families UK
Hayley from YourProofreader has done some excellent work on my children's/adult Amazon bestseller 'The Mystery of Darkhill School'. She was very thorough and supplied me with a bulleted list of all her findings. Communication was prompt and she was happy to discuss and clarify things further. I will definitely use her services again.

Hayley proofread my latest book. She was professional and passionate about the project and worked very quickly. Her advice and edits were spot on. Hayley has helped me to improve consistency across the document, correct grammatical issues and spot those spelling errors that happen when you are so absorbed in the content. I highly recommend working with YourProofreader.
Debra Webster, Co-Founder of Emotions Toolkit
Hayley has recently done quite a lot of proofreading for my business Benjamin Edwards Recruitment. I found her a pleasure to deal with, very professional. Brilliant attention to detail and came up with constructive and very positive ideas of how to change things. No job is a chore and she is very passionate about what she does. I would definitely recommend Hayley and will endeavour to use her services again.
