Book Editing Services

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.


We offer professional editing at all levels. The editing process is a collaborative one between editor and author; the editor’s role is to advocate on behalf of the reader and to strengthen the author’s voice.

  • 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.
