Anita was a great editor and did a wonderful job on my book, Money Shot. I wouldn't hesitate to work with her again.

Anita is a modern day renaissance woman--editor, writer, publicist, publisher--with the skills to do it all and the talent to do it all well. As one who embraces challenges, she is hard-working, dedicated and full of ideas. Having worked with Anita in multiple capacities, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her for anything she set her mind to.

I had the pleasure to get to know and to work directly with Anita Diggs at Avalon Publishing Group. Anita's remarkable work ethic and fabulous personality make it easy for me to give her an unqualified endorsement for any position. Anita is a dedicated worker who is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure her Authors are on the right path to publishing a great book. Anita is skilled at prioritizing multiple responsibilities.  She is detail-oriented and has served as liason between her Authors and the many departments that are involved in the production process of a book. In addition, she has amassed great editorial knowledge over the years. Anita brings energy, enthusiasm, and commitment to all of her work. And she is a creative, original thinker. Anita is simply a delight to work with and to have as part of your team.

Anita is highly knowledgable and passionate about the subject matter she works on, and she excels at passing on her knowledge. During my time as her assistant at Avalon, she provided concrete examples for me to follow and gave immediate feeback on my work. Her editorial and acquisition skills were spot-on, and I am grateful for the opportunity I had to work with her.

I have known Anita for many years, first as a publicist then as an editor. She has a great deal of passion for the books she has published, as well as for the business of book publishing as a whole. Anita is a well-rounded publishing professional having been a part of marketing, editorial, and an author. To that end, she is a great advocate for any author, and teacher for anyone looking to enter the business.
