"I signed with Anne in February 2010. It was the best decision I ever made. Anne was honest, open minded, and ready with her own editing process that helped make my novel the best it could be before we submitted it to publishers. Once the process began, Anne was always in contact with me, keeping me in 'the loop' and helping me feel secure. I can't say enough about her ability to be professional as well as supportive. Her negotiation practices are effective as well as insightful and I knew, at every step of the way, that she was my champion. Anne's previous career as an editor in the industry is a huge part of her ability to understand the ins and outs of a world most writers (especially new writers) can't effectively navigate. It is an added advantage to an already wonderful Literary Agency. I can't recommend her enough. She's a cheerleader, a dedicated reader with an editors eye, and she has a vision for each and every project I send to her. She's also highly responsive-- and for me, that is the most important quality. She's there when I need her... even when I don't know I need her!"

"Anne is a smart, thorough, and perceptive editor. She reads manuscripts with a keen eye and nurtures them with thought and care. Most of all, she is an extremely fun and kind person to work with!"
--Joanne Rendell, author of THE PROFESSORS' WIVES' CLUB and
CROSSING WASHINGTON SQUARE
"Anne Bohner was the editor for my book. We worked together from acquisition of the book's rights through printing, distribution and publicity. In addition to holding my hand, as a first time author, and becoming a friend, Anne line-edited all of my copy, making excellent suggestions throughout, and helped guide me throughout the post-publication period. As a result, the book was a success and resulted in solid sales. I will be forever grateful to her for this, and would jump at the opportunity to work with Anne again."

How to Stay Sane Once You've Caught Your Man
“I loved working with Anne Bohner. Years of publishing experience, her absolute professionalism, and dedication to an author’s success guarantee that Pen & Ink Literary will be one of the industry’s top agencies. Anne built my Allie Mackay career, helped me write the best books I could, and worked hard to ensure that my books received excellent in-house backing. Authors would be hard-pressed to find a more supportive and enthusiastic advocate."
--Allie Mackay, author of HAUNTED WARRIOR
