Hi Soman!! What do you mean by proofing the books. Do you have to look up the facts when you finish writing a book?
And also, how do you first publish a book? Do you seek a publisher or something?
Proofing is when they make sure it’s spelled correctly I think
Proofing is kinda like self-editing, I think. Like you know when editors correct mistakes but like Soman tries to do it himself first. I don’t know if that’s right, it’s just my guess. With publishing you have to send it to a publisher.
It’s rereading what you wrote and correcting any mistakes you may have made, whether it is story-wise or grammar-wise or something else. It’s like being the editor of your own book.
To publish a book, a publisher has to accept your story to see if it has any profit. You would usually send an excerpt. Many famous authors have been rejected at this stage. It’s truly a tough world out there.
I hope this helped!
Proofing is more when they send it to me how it looks on the page and I have to carefully go through it and make sure there’s no typos
