Don't wither on the vine! Let us handle the details so your creativity can flourish...
  • What is a Virtual Assistant?

    A Virtual Assistant (VA) is a highly-trained independent entrepreneur who provides a myriad of business support services virtually via phone, email, and Internet based technology to support and meet the growing needs of businesses worldwide. Vineyard Virtual Services takes it one step further and concentrates on authors (and authors-to-be!) and their specialized needs.

    Partnering with a VA reduces stress, protects cash flow, eliminates administrative hassles, and enables busy people to find the success they originally set out to achieve. When you eliminate the “have-to’s” by working with a VA you open up the time you have to create.

    A VA is your right hand person helping you to succeed in your business. The irony is you may never meet your VA as odds are they live nowhere near you!

  • What are the Benefits to You?

    Vineyard Virtual Services (VSS) is an independent entity. You don’t have to worry about Social Security, Medicare, and other payroll taxes. You don’t pay for health, dental, vision, or disability benefits. You’re not responsible for any of the other daunting tasks that come from having actual employees.

    You don’t provide VSS’ equipment, hardware, or software, unless you have a specified unique need. That means no administrative overhead just to house someone while they work. We have our own resources here at Vineyard Virtual Services.

    As business owners ourselves, we have a unique perspective and outlook. We’re running a business. That business is to provide YOU the services you need. You are getting our 19 years of administrative experience to work for you. You only pay for the contracted amount. You pay for the hours worked – not breaks, or lunches, or downtime. All our time for you is productive. That means you are more productive.

  • Who Needs a Virtual Author’s Assistant?

    Are you creative? Do you work with creative people? Do you write? Perhaps you write freelance articles. Perhaps you’re a blogger. Perhaps you’re an author in the hardcopy book or magazine world. Perhaps you publish eBooks.

    Do you need editing? Perhaps some WordPress customization? Another pair of eyes? Internal book design? Someone to help you with your calendar? Funnel those emails? Be vigilant in social media?

    If you’re creative and feel bogged down by the administrative details instead of actually writing, you need a Virtual Author’s Assistant. You need Vineyard Virtual Services.

What can we do for you?

I met Michele Wilcox through Blog Nosh Magazine where we both serve as editors. I met her in person at the 2009 SXSW conference while we gathered to cheer for Blog Nosh’s two nominations in the Bloggie Awards, and she struck me as smart, skilled, and a small business owner I would like to support. Working with her on this project has been a dream. She designed the book’s interior, formatted, and copy-edited, all fast and flawlessly. Working with a VA who is also a blogger was fantastic, because she knows the landscape and the lingo. It is an amazing feeling to send off a few emails that turn into professional work while you are working on other things, or napping by the pool. Virtual assistants are essential to independent creatives, and I can’t recommend Michele more highly, or thank her enough for her fantastic work.
