Blue Pen Editing (Editing)

​I treat each manuscript as I would like my own writing to be treated.
I call that my golden rule of editing.


My name is Victoria Griffin. I specialize in fiction editing, but I have also worked with nonfiction, including memoirs. I am an eclectic reader, and that translates to my editing specialities. One of my favorite parts of editing is reading books I might not choose off the shelf.

Visit http://www.victoriagriffin.net/editing or contact me at victoria@victoriagriffin.net to learn more about who I am and what I do and to request a free sample edit.

- Submission Package (query, synopsis, first ten) $60

​A bit about my editing philosophy: http://www.victoriagriffin.net/philosophy​

I am ruthless because you need me to be. As an editor, I am able to view the work objectively and to make difficult decisions. I'm not remembering the night I fell in love with my protagonist or the morning I dreamed up the perfect setting. I'm judging the work based on its effectiveness—the way a reader will. I am here to make the work better, and each and every change I make should result in improvement.

But I understand it's your baby. I know you put in endless hours. You dreamed about your characters and reminisced about their pasts. I know you have stories about them that never made it to the page, and I know your work is an extension of yourself. That's why I tell you the positives, too. I won't hide my excitement when I run across that sparkling gem of a sentence. I'm not here to coddle you, but I am here to encourage you. I strive to make each author's editorial experience a positive one. Our relationship should foster your talent and nurture your passion.

Victory Editing runs a NetGalley co-op. My co-op is one of the oldest and well-respected co-ops out there and features giving you full control of your title.

NetGalley is one of the largest eARC-distribution sites out there. A huge advantage is that it gives you access to people you might not otherwise reach, such as reviewers for major publications like USA Today and Publishers Weekly, as well as libraries and booksellers.

I’ve assembled some basic information on my website regarding what NetGalley is and how the co-op works. If you have additional questions not covered or you’d like to join the co-op, please drop me an e-mail.

Need an Editor? Award-winning author with 35 years’ editing experience

When working with an editor, the relationship must be based on clear communication, trust, and sharing the same vision for your manuscript - i.e. making it the very best it can be.

I’m passionate about words and writing, and as an award-winning author, I have learned the value and importance of having another pair of eyes check my manuscripts! Give me a “test drive” with the first 1500 words of your m/s and let’s see if we’re a good fit!

You can find samples of my writing all over the internet, including numerous articles in my capacity as a Huffington Post contributor.

I take anything from shorts and novellas to 100,000+ words. I’m open to most genres including erotica, biographies, memoirs, fiction, most non-technical non-fiction.

I don’t do poetry, technical manuals, and various types of non-fiction (e.g. financial, political).

Basic Proofreading:

*Typos (e.g. duplicate or missing words or letters)
*Their/there/they’re, you're/your, or two, too, to etc.
*Punctuation
*A general “tidying” of simple errors or omissions

Copy Editing:

*Basic proofreading
*Awkward sentences
*Repeated and redundant words and phrases
*Grammar
*Inconsistencies
*Run-on sentences or paragraphs

If you’d like more information or are interested in a “test drive”, please take a look at my website or send an email! I look forward to helping you iron out the kinks that you might have missed after staring at the same pages over and over again…!

If you want more in-depth editing or "book shepherding" to help you write better, more descriptively etc., this is another service I offer.

Check, how great you can be at this point, when your text is completely unique and is written in your own style, that have more to say to your readers, than even original. Paraphrasing is more than just replacing words, it is an art of giving to already written texts a new form of existing, a part of the personality of the new writer, who wants to deliver the idea of previous text to the completely different audience. Students have such troubles while preparing their academic works, but here we can provide them with superb paraphrasing service for academic purposes.[edit]

I provide both print and ebook design services, including interior layout and design, cover design when provided with artwork, ebook file creation and conversion to various ebook file formats. As part of my services, I provide basic typo and punctuation proofreading, and can provided much more in-depth proofreading if requested.

I believe that a well designed ebook is just as vital as a well designed print book. I believe in working with the author to create a book whose design reflects the author's personality and desired intent.

I will do both fiction and non-fiction publications. I have experience in photo editing as well as design, and have worked with photographically illustrated publications.

I am pleasant, knowledgeable and hard-working. I go above and beyond what is required of me on most jobs.

If you are interested in customized layout and design from an experienced self-employed designer, I could be the formatter that you are seeking. Please feel free to contact me for a quote.

As a Canadian designer, I prefer to work with Canadian authors and publishers, but will work with individuals from different countries upon negotiation.

With 17 years’ experience teaching creative writing, literature, composition, and editing at universities and writers’ workshops, my red pen has seen just about every style, form, and genre of writing. In that time, I also served as editor of a small fiction press and worked on the editorial staff of several literary magazines, giving me valuable insight into the publisher’s perspective.

While I loved teaching, I always wanted a life of books and the electricity possible when readers and writers converge on the necessary page. So I took the plunge: I gave up tenure in order to do what I love most, writing and editing full-time.

Whether you need a proofread, copyedit, line edit, or developmental edit, rest assured I will bring to bear the seasoned eyes of a professional editor, along with the specialized abilities and insights of a writer and publisher.

I would love to work with you on your next project. Email me now!
