"Very professional service and excellent communication throughout the process. Exactly what I was hoping for. Communication was excellent... additionally quality of service overall and help provided was first rate. Furthermore price and product quality were also superb. Communication is key to this type of service and the service provided was first rate. Affordable but not to the degree of undermining a quality of service. Good balance given. Whilst there may be cheaper out there it is unlikely they would provide as thorough a service or as good a service. Personally I am happy to pay slightly more for a very good product and service. Regular, swift and always willing to answer questions with a personal response. And when I asked for further clarification it was given promptly and in good detail in a clear manner. I came across you from a recommendation from a friend so I would be more than happy to do the same."
E.N.K. CLARKSON - author of "MILDRED AND OTHER STORIES"







"Matt McAvoy has provided a highly professional service in reviewing my book and carrying out an editorial appraisal. He did all that at a price substantially below that of competitors. With my next book I will have no hesitation in using his services to the full."

RAM T. DARYANATHAN - author of "SCROONATHAN: A DIWALI STORY"







"Wonderful. Matt managed to encapsulate the key themes and ideas of my manuscript, something that I desperately needed help with! Good communication, timely delivery, highly recommended."

EVA LEPPARD - author of "THE PITFALLS OF BEING A GODDESS"







"Super helpful and worked very fast! Would definitely recommend."

DAVE RUETER - author of "A SIXERS ODYSSEY"







"The synopsis was well-written and I found it to be spot on. Matt provided some good feedback... I plan to use him again in the future."

SHAD'E ZUIWETA - author of "ADULTEROUS SINS"







"Mr. McAvoy's review and beta reading were complete and very useful."

LUIS PISONI and AURORA MAZZOLDI - authors of "HOW TO GET THE BEST FROM LIFE"







"MJV has helped bring the finishing touch to my books, the look and feel of the revised work is excellent. I have received top rated reviews and never a negative word on the quality and grammar of my books. Great communication, too; Matt keeps me informed, I'm always aware of what's happening and the follow up is excellent."

ROBERT J. SANISCALCHI - author of "FREEDOM'S LIGHT"







"Matt was very amiable and easy to work with from the start. His responses were speedy and courteous. His appraisal report is detailed and very informative. Overall, he has provided me with an excellent and thorough assessment that will be extremely helpful in bringing my manuscript up to market readiness. I would definitely recommend his services."

HAZEL WARD - author of "THE THREE THINGS THAT BROKE NETTA WILDE"







"I have referred your service to other authors a few times and will continue to do so; it is great value for the money. The Kindle/e-Book Service adds a little to the cost, but is the icing on the cake for getting out there in the e-book market."

ROBERT J. SANISCALCHI - author of "BUTTERFLY LAKE"







"Great commenting; just what I needed."

SHYON BABAZADEH - author of "DARK MATTER EMPIRE, BOOK ONE"







"Very professional and speedy delivery; beyond expectation."

AARON RAN - author of "MICRO DEMOCRACY"







"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"

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."

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."
