    the authors

    I am still studying English skills. I wondered whether the books by known authors who write English have been corrected with the help of proofreaders, right? Or sometimes not?

    i am looking forward to hear from you. thank you

    Re: the authors

    Very few (if any) reputable publishers will publish a book before it has been edited - in consultation with the author. If the language is too mangled, most publishers/agents will insist on proofreading and correction (at the author's expense) before they will even look at it. The final version will be carefully proofread before the book is published.

    Thank you for your explanation. I am still studying English skills. it takes me a long time to learn my English. I heard from some people if I read the book in English every day, then it will improve my writing English.
