Fatty Patty was my debut novel and my first taste of the world of independent publishing. Going in, I knew it would be crucial to have a solid team of professionals behind me, starting with an experienced editor. When I asked a friend (a multi-pubbed NY Times best-selling author) for advice on whom to turn to, she never even hesitated. “Anne Victory” was the one and only name she mentioned.

I contacted Anne and found her to be everything my friend had promised—and more. Anne took hold of the manuscript and virtually held my hand (in cyberspace) through every step of the process. Anne is the consummate professional: dedicated, prompt, positive . . . plus an absolute dream to work with. Her turnaround time is amazing. We’ve worked together on four books (the James Bay series) now, and I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve just finished a rough draft of my fifth novel. When it comes time for editing, I wouldn’t trust it to anyone but Anne.”
