WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE SAID:
"I’ve worked with several freelance editors over the years. Tammy Salyer impressed me not only with her reasonable prices and thorough work, but with her quick replies and rapid turnaround. She was flexible enough to work with an irregular-length piece, and managed to beat a very tight deadline. She’s definitely one of the first I’ll go to whenever I’m looking for some editorial advice." Joseph Lallo ~ SF/F author of The Big Sigma series, The Book of Deacon series, and many more

“Tammy excels at evaluating material on the basis of the writer’s aspirations and creative sensibilities, not her own. She comes to the world the writer envisions, she doesn't try to pull the work to her own preferences. She’s productively straightforward in her comments—always building, never cutting down. Great instincts and a strong working knowledge of character, narrative, genre and tone all make her what a great editor should be: an invaluable part of the process toward reaching the full potential of a piece of writing.”
~ Kevin Bliss, SF author of The Attachment Race, The Haver Problem, and more

“Tammy is highly professional and an absolute delight to work with. She clearly has a love for the written word and the genre. She returned my manuscript to me by the agreed deadline, and I was absolutely thrilled with the results—she did what an editor’s supposed to do: make me sound more awesome than I am. I immediately hired her to edit a re-release of my previous book, and I’ll be using her again in the future.”
~ K. Scott Lewis, SF/F author of The Ahmbren Chronicles and short stories

"I never thought I’d be happy to see so much red. Like a ninja, Tammy carved through the clutter, ravaged the redundancies, pulverized the punctuation, sliced through the style issues, and made my prose pop. She’s not just an editor but a fighter. She worked hard for me—before, during, and after she punched the clock."
Peter Samet ~ SF author of Zero Echo Shadow Prime

WHO AM I? GLAD YOU ASKED.
As a writer myself, I have a distinct appreciation for the efforts, time, and emotional upheaval writing requires. Sometimes you love your project with the intensity of a thousand burning suns; other times you want to throw your computer from the Empire State Building and never look at your words again. I completely understand.

The day eventually comes when you have read, re-read, and re-re-read your manuscript so frequently that you no longer even see the words on the screen (or page). When you’ve reached that point, you’re ready to call in some outside help, fresh eyes that can see the big picture, the small picture, and everything in between. Have you somehow missed a word, overused a word, or even used the wrong word? Did you gloss over critical details that readers need? Does the story hold together and flow as well to others as it does in your mind? These are all areas in which I can help. As an editor, I’m not just a nefarious brandisher of a red pen; I consider myself your partner and cheerleader. I want your every manuscript to be the best you’ve ever written, and I want you to succeed in reaching your publishing goals, whether they are modest or magnificent.

I am a current or former member of the Editorial Freelancers Association, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, the Association of Independent Publishing Professionals, and Publishers Marketplace. You can also learn about me at LinkedIn. With over fifteen years of experience in editing, writing, and publishing, I am currently looking for new clients to embark on a writing adventure with. Could this be you?

***Please note, due to a high volume of projects, I am unable to consider short stories or novellas at this time.***

I asked her to do a copy edit with a soft line edit. She did an excellent job. She was very fast and very detailed. Her comments were very helpful and on point. I would not hesitate to work with her again. She helped make the novel a lot better.
