Editorial & Design Services

Comprehensive services for authors, individuals, businesses and not-for-profits: researching, writing, editing, proofreading, design and print management.

Research and Writing

Vivalogue staff have many years’ professional experience as researchers and writers and can provide original copywriting for businesses, ghost-writing for individuals and additional research for authors.

Editing

We offer professional editing at all levels.

  • Substantive editing for structure, characterization, plot and content for fiction; major argument and narrative structure for non-fiction.
  • Copy editing for narrative and stylistic consistency, fact-checking, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary.
  • Proofreading for spelling, punctuation, grammar and stylistic consistency.

Design

Providing custom interior layout design for all books, from text-only content to complicated photo and image layouts with captions and text; plus standard and custom book cover design. We source photos and graphics, plus image and photo editing and enhancement.

Print Management

Vivalogue does not work with just one printer, but obtains competitive quotes from qualified, quality printers appropriate for each book project. We handle all print management, from creation of print-ready files, through the proofing process and proof corrections to final delivery.

E-Book Conversion

We can convert your book to all industry-standard e-book formats and assist in setting up e-book distribution accounts, including Amazon Kindle.

Author Websites

Vivalogue can create custom websites for authors, including online order forms with payment integration, so readers can order and pay for books direct from the author’s own website.
