Overview

I'm a Certified Professional Editor through the University of California Berkeley, specializing in romantic fiction editing. I've worked in both mainstream and independent publishing in editorial and publicity with Penguin Random House, Macmillan, and Entangled for seven years, with experience in content and developmental editing, copyediting, proofreading, writing, and reviewing across all genres of romantic fiction, including historical romance, contemporary romance, and erotic romance. My clients are New York Times and USA Today best-selling authors like Sophie Jordan and Lauren Blakely. My dream work is being a consultant for authors on plot, characterization, and motivation, and I am also accomplished in the mechanics and language of editing—like my first full-length professional title, I am the Full Package!

I'm a reader first, editor second, meaning I will view your books with the eye of what the reader is looking for in a great read. I genuinely love reading romance, and I have the experience to know how to craft your book to stand out in a huge field. I'm thorough and meticulous in both my developmental edits and my copyedits, and no comma placement is too small. I'm highly organized and stay on top of my projects, providing detailed feedback in my edits and guiding authors through the editing process from start to finish. I guarantee I will help you make your book the best it can be, and will bring enthusiasm and passion in doing so!

"Tiffany has eagle eyes and a deep command of editorial styles, as well as an agility with words. She's efficient, precise and easy to work with. I trust her completely with my stories!" - #1 NYT Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely

"I've known and worked with Tiffany for years. She is efficient and reliable and thorough in everything she does. She is an asset to any writer and can help in multiple capacities—on the editing front or with promotion." - NYT Bestselling Author Sophie Jordan

I hired Tiffany to provide copywriting and proofreading services for a manuscript. The manuscript had been through multiple rounds of editing. She is very easy to work with, communicated clearly and did a great job with the MS. The comments I received back, the changes and corrections, were excellent.

My editor has been helpful guiding me to improving my manuscript. It turned out that I misspoke about the genre, but she is helping me focus in on the right listing. I have appreciated her comments and suggestions, which are making me to make changes that I believe will strengthen the final product. I look forward to working with her on the next pass of the manuscript.

Joyce Nash, September 2020

I appreciate that she treated me as a colleague—not just a customer. Her editing was meticulous, and she researched and identified issues that completely slipped past my eyes and those of a dozen beta readers. ...
