Hello, Fellow Author.  Thank you for visiting.

As a professional novelist whose work has been published in print, both on a traditional and self-published basis, I now try to help other authors, by providing a simple and basic menu of high-quality services they need to get the job done, both in production and post-production of their book project.  We are a proud member of the SfEP (Society for Editors and Proofreaders), and can be found listed in the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook.  

When I conceived this company, the inspiration was simple: I kept at the forefront my own early experiences of self-publishing (the easy bit, it turned out!), and then the real work of self-promotion - MJV Literary was created to answer the questions I, and many authors like me, didn't know the answers to at the time.  I learnt by trial and error how to format for e-book publishing, typeset for print, and go about launching and executing a promotion campaign, as well as the sheer levels of graft involved.  Needless to say, since that first experience I have improved the craft of publishing immeasurably, and my early books have been since reissued - they are now better-looking, higher quality, and generally more professional versions. 

Now, I am in the company of professional editors and publishers, and this venture has been formed to provide and carry out no more or less than the fundamental editorial and promotional services necessary to publish or submit your book, and then to promote it.  Unlike other "essential" book services, many of which are ineffectual by nature, our menu is concise and clear, and it is based simply on those jobs that need to be done - sleeves up and hands dirty! 

To our surprise, our fast-growing editorial services client-base has actually consisted of more experienced, often traditionally published novelists than novice ones - 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 never use proofreading software), and meticulously double-checked; the quality of our work is widely respected.  Complementing this, the promotion methods we use are simple and entirely necessary, embracing the most up-to-date social technology, as well as what we believe to be the most comprehensive database of book reviewers ever compiled (we know this, because we created it)!  Despite our hands-on approach, we still offer prices we believe you will not match for a service of this quality anywhere else in the world.

Good luck and thanks again.
Matt McAvoy.
