Blue Pen: Serving Your Story

Contact Blue Pen at

Excellence. Integrity. Professionalism.

We are a small team of editors, book designers, and project managers working to help authors create excellent books. Some of our authors need book editing services to prepare for submission, and others hire us to edit and design their self-published book.

Founded by author and editor Victoria Griffin, our team provides editing services including developmental editing, manuscript critiques, line editing, and proofreading. Our editorial team boasts an average of 10.4 years of experience—with both independent authors and traditional publishers.

In addition to editing, we provide services to help independent authors publish exceptional books. Our team includes some of the industry’s best designers, who understand what will impress readers. Our services include custom cover design, interior layout, back cover blurbs, custom maps, illustrations, and assisted self-publishing sessions.

Blue Pen is a partner member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). ALLi vetted our services in areas including integrity, value, clarity, communication, transparency, and continuous improvement.
