Our menu is concise and clear, based simply on the services publishing authors need.  

Although suitable for those who are in the process of self-publishing or submitting their book, unsurprisingly to us our fast-growing client-base has notably comprised more experienced, often traditionally published authors - view OUR PORTFOLIO to take a look.  We believe the reason for this is simple: our editing services are carried out the old-fashioned way, by eye and hand of skilled craftsmen (we use proofreading software absolutely minimally) and meticulously double-checked; the quality of our work is widely respected. 

We offer the following services to help authors at all stages:

MANUSCRIPT STAGECOPY-EDITING, PROOFREADING, BETA-READING and  TRANSLATION TO ENGLISH.

PUBLISHING STAGEKINDLE e-BOOK CREATION and KDP-FRIENDLY PRINT-READY TYPESETTING.  
We also offer PUBLISHING PACKAGES, with the option to choose SELF-PUBLISHING or to join our exciting new
MJV LITERARY PUBLISHING IMPRINT - check out the fantastic benefits of publishing an MJV Literary title.

SUBMISSION STAGE:  SYNOPSIS-WRITING services.

LAUNCH STAGE:  BOOK REVIEWS and FEATURED LISTINGS.

We are a proud member of the SfEP (Society for Editors and Proofreaders) and can be found listed in the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook, and a lot of other places, too.  

"A splendid service. Working with Matt McAvoy and MJV Authors to remedy errors that had escaped my notice and improve passage flow and delivery was as easy as it was enjoyable, and it left me with a product I couldn't be happier with. I came across Matt's review service quite late; he was extremely helpful, quick and professional, and from there I found MJV Authors. I arrived uncertain and hopeful, and left confident and delighted. I highly recommend Matt and MJV Literary Author Services to anyone looking to put the finishing touches on their book - to ensure that the final version is the best version it can be! Thanks guys!"  
THOMAS RICHARDS - author of "THE CORRAL RING"







"MJV provided an analysis of my 500 page book, noting the strengths and weaknesses in a nice report. It’s hard to read a critique of your own work, but Matt’s detailed feedback was so thoughtfully crafted that I found myself nodding in agreement with every one of his points. Worth every penny."  

JEFFREY CHASE - author of "TRANSIT TO ZEISS"







"Working with Matt exceeded my expectations. It was clear he had thoroughly read my manuscript and provided a fantastic synopsis, exactly what I needed. Very professional and knew exactly what he was doing. I cannot recommend this service enough. Thank you."  

FAIZAH HAIDER - author of "PALESTINE STATE OF MIND"







"I was very pleased with the thoroughness and quality of proofing and copy editing. I will use this service again, without a doubt."  

NICK ARNETT - author of "RESILIENCE DURING THE PANDEMIC"

C.J. KLINE - author of "SACRED"

RIC RAE - author of "MONSTERS INSIDE"







"I used MJV Literary Services for proofreading, and Kindle typesetting and I have to say that I am very happy with the result. It is clear that the MJV team operates to a high standard. Their suggested edits and revisions are not only detailed but also improved the flow of my book. My book has got good reviews from respected publications such as Kirkus Reviews and Amazon customers afterwards. Will definitely be using MJV services again for my future work."  

DIMAS RIO - author of "WHO'S THERE?"







"Matt went over and beyond with his beta read. He provided an honest critique with many helpful suggestions. I would definitely recommend him."  

WENDIE PERCHARSKY - author of "CHILDREN OF THE REICH"







"Matt did an amazing job whipping up an excellent summary to my new adult fantasy novel. He focused in on the overall themes and wove them through a factual retelling of the novel's events, resulting in a well-crafted précis that's concise, engaging, and complete without omitting any important detail."  

E.H. BALCH - author of "ASSAULT ON DEVIL'S DEN"







"Did an in depth review of over 140,000 words in such little time. Highly recommend!"  

GABRIEL ROBIN - author of "SHIFTERS"







"For the price point I got someone who knows how to write a decent synopsis and who actually read my manuscript!"  

MICHAEL LOOFT - author of "RISING UP"







"MJV Literary Author Services were extremely professional and helpful when they created my synopsis and proofread my novel, and I would have no hesitation in recommending their excellent author services."  

B.P. SMYTHE - author of "THE MEDAL OF PURITY"







"MJV literary helped me plough the minefield of publishing my debut novella. I would not have made it without Matt, or Maja my cover designer. Thank you to both."
B.J. RAY - author of "ON MIDNIGHT RIDGE"







"I first sent my book to be reviewed as I was unsure whether it was good enough to be published. It turned out that even though the story wasn't bad, my broken English made it very hard to be understood. I then decided to go with copy-editing and it became a much better read - even for me, the author, who already knew the story by heart."
ERWAN GOURM - author of "AN UNWANTED AND UNWILLING HERO"







"Matt was very responsive and provided excellent work with a quick turnaround. He created a synopsis in the correct format and had a great hook. I look forward to working with him again in the near future."
CONNIE UPHAM - author of "ROAD TO GLORY"







"Matt McAvoy delivered a wonderful synopsis! What a wonderful delivery... and chap."
CALUM SYERS - author of "THE SEPTEMBER GURL"







"Matt provided a very thorough and honest beta-reading assessment and importantly with positive, implementable recommendations."

S.P. CARNEY - author of "THE ESCAPE VELOCITY OF ATTACHMENT"







"Very quick, professional job. Thanks!"
DANNY DECILLIS - author of "I.R.L."







"I have a hunch that this synopsis will get me an agent!"

JASON MARSHALL - author of "MEET MARVIN"







"It was a pleasure working with Matt McAvoy on my first novel - My only regret is that I didn't find him sooner. I will definitely use MJV on my next project."
MARK GUILLERMAN - author of "FLOW LIKE A RIVER"

SIMON GARY - author of "GONE TO THE DOGS"







"I have received both a review and a copy edit from MJV. The review was honest and straightforward. It pointed out fixable shortcomings in my novel. The edit was thorough. I now appreciate the value of using a copy editor prior to submission. MJV provides excellent value compared to the other choices I researched."
PETER LEARN - author of "ROCKY MOUNTAIN NOIR"
