‘Working with Avon has been a fantastic experience. I feel supported, valued and very well informed. I hope our work together continues for many more books.’
Laura Jane Williams, author of Our Stop

‘There is literally no other team in publishing like Avon. They’re like a choir, all with their different parts that make a powerful melody. Plus, they’re super fun, which goes a long way in the otherwise very solitary “writing a book” process!’
C.L. Taylor, author of Sleep

Signing with Avon was an absolute dream come true. I’d loved their books for years, and felt welcomed into the family right from the start. The best thing about the imprint is definitely the people – everyone’s been so warm, enthusiastic and kind, making me feel very lucky to have such dedicated people to work with on each book’
Helen Fields, author of The Shadow Man

‘The Avon team has a gift for finding books that really appeal to the widest possible audience, and for seeing potential in new writers. The sheer enthusiasm for and love of books at Avon is extraordinary. The support for their authors is legendary. Every book is valued, every writer is made to feel valued and there’s never a day when you can’t reach out to editorial, publicity, sales, marketing or anyone you need for guidance. Being an author with Avon has transformed my experience of being a writer. I’m part of a family now.’
Claire Allan, author of Her Name Was Rose

‘Working with Avon over the past two years has been incredible. I have been made to feel like a very valued part of a team, and have received incredible support from everyone – from my amazing editors, to sales and marketing. My career has soared since signing with Avon and I have achieved things I never thought possible. They are dream makers.’
Lorna Cook, author of The Forgotten Village

‘I’m so incredibly impressed with how easy and wonderful it’s been working with Avon. From acquisition to publication and beyond the whole measure has been completely seamless. While it’s wonderful to be felt very much part of a team and included in decisions surrounding my books, it’s also comforting to rest on Avon’s unparalleled knowledge of the market as they propelled my debut novel, The Forgotten Village, into success beyond my wildest dreams in such a short space of time. I’m beyond thrilled to be with such a dynamic and proactive publisher.’
Mandy Robotham, author of The Girl Behind the Wall

‘I signed with Avon via their open submissions – at the time, I had no agent to guide me, and they were brilliant with taking me through edits, publicity and beyond. It’s such a complete team, and everyone is so approachable.’
Sam Carrington, author of The Couple on Maple Drive

‘I am so proud to be published by such a hard-working, dynamic and fun team. Everyone at Avon is amazing at their job: talented, professional, friendly, enthusiastic and supportive. I can’t imagine ever being in better hands. When you join Avon, you join a family.’
Nell Pattison, author of Hide

‘As a debut author I feel very lucky to be with Avon. Everyone on the team is enthusiastic and passionate about what they do, and I’ve felt supported and included in every step of the process. They work so hard to champion their authors, and their excitement about my writing has helped to boost my confidence. I couldn’t have asked for a better team to launch my writing career.’
Sue Moorcroft, author of Under the Italian Sun

‘Never be in any doubt about what you’ll receive with Avon. They’re an upbeat, creative company with a light-hearted, can-do attitude – wonderful, inspiring people to liaise and work with.’
Caroline Corcoran, author of Through the Wall

‘Since I signed a book deal with Avon, I’ve gone from solo writing into the ether to feeling right at the heart of a team who support me, champion me and go above and beyond in everything they can do for my book. What I find particularly special is that despite it being everyday to them, they genuinely seem as excited as I am about the twists and turns of publishing my book. And that has made the whole process so ridiculously fun and joyous. In short, I can’t imagine having had this experience with anything but this brilliant, smart group of people.’ 
Nicola Rayner, author of The Girl Before You

‘The Avon team is so friendly and thoughtful. From social media training to fantastic parties, I’ve found that Avon really looks after its authors. It’s been a pleasure working with the team on my debut, The Girl Before You, and I’m looking forward to our collaboration on my next novel.’
J.P. Carter, author of At Your Door

‘The team at Avon are an absolute pleasure to work with. They’re talented, friendly, approachable – and they organise great social events.’
