Few things are more satisfying than getting your book published. This page contains examples of how I’ve helped many writers achieve their publishing dreams.

Get your book published leveraging my experience in:

 

  • representing authors as a literary agent
  • writing and revising submission queries to literary agents
  • preparing agent submissions for fiction and nonfiction book projects
  • developmental editing of fiction and nonfiction manuscripts
  • nonfiction book proposals
  • knowing what it takes to write and get published — twice
  • copywriting for lawyers and nonprofit organisations

VIRGINIA LLOYD
Hello and welcome. I help writers and experts develop their work to a publishable standard, find an agent, and get published. As the traditionally published author of two books, as a structural editor, former in-house editor and literary agent, I provide fiction and nonfiction writers with the sorts of commercial and constructive feedback you will never get from a writing class or workshop.
