Tiffany Tyer – Editor

An editor specializing in romantic fiction with ten years' experience. Worked for Penguin Random House, Macmillan, and Entangled.

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 was a dream editor for me. She was not only on her A-game but also so communicative the entire time. This was not only my first book but a historical romance as well, so I was very intimidated by the editing process. Tiffany was enthusiastic, professional, thorough, and educational. She picked out every word in my manuscript that had yet to be invented (according to my setting) and prov...

Tiffany copy-edited and proofread my 90K word contemporary romance novel. I found her work to be of a very high standard. There was editing on nearly every page! This was partly because she “translated” my Australian terms and phrasing for a US reader. As well as being clever and diligent, Tiffany was kind and patient with me, a new author. She has a warm personality which came through all of ...

Tiffany did an absolutely wonderful job copyediting my debut duology. She is super sharp and very detail-oriented to the point of perfectionism (in a good way, she never impeded my voice), and my manuscript is in far better shape than it was when she found it. It's a historical romance, so her diligence in making sure it was free of anachronistic language was especially helpful. For both bo...
