Editing testimonials

‘Getting the right editor is the most important thing you can do for your career. You might need to try a few until you find your perfect match. Well, I’ve found mine in Victoria. Her professionalism, expertise, attention to detail, mixed with her friendly attitude and encouragement have taken my work to the next level. She certainly adds the glitter to my writing.’ Mel Sherratt, bestselling author of DS Allie Shenton Series

‘Victoria finds potential even if it’s buried under thick dust; she cuts through rust and lets what’s underneath shine. She does all this and is still kind, and approachable and funny and encouraging.’ Rosa Rankin-Gee, author of The Last Kings of Sark

‘I am proud to say that we at Virago/Abacus were the first to spot the talent of Victoria Pepe. She has a tremendous eye for detail; a sixth sense of what’s required when talking to authors and agents; a passion for books and an obvious talent for structural editing. She has the crucial ingredients of an editor: the emotional intelligence to understand an author’s vision of their book and the ability to help them realise it on the page.’ Lennie Goodings, Publisher, Virago Press
