My experience with Veronica as my sensitivity reader was excellent, which is exactly what I’ve come to expect from Salt and Sage. I tell people that my sensitivity readers are my “turn signal” when I’m writing out of my lane. When I write a strong Black woman like Rhodie, I want to get the little details and the big picture right, and frankly, it can be uncomfortable. Veronica was able to gently but directly point out a few blind spots and issues in the character’s portrayal that I hadn’t considered. She approached the work with respect and viewed it from many different angles. Her feedback was very helpful, and work like hers is one reason I keep coming back to Salt and Sage for my editorial needs.

Bre Jeffries

Everyone I interacted/worked with was incredibly friendly and professional, which was wonderful as I’m a new writer breaking into unfamiliar territory. The process was straightforward from start to finish, and I was very pleased with my sensitivity read and notes for my work. I look forward to working with them again!


Fantastic! I will definitely be back. If anything, the editor’s letter reinforced my dream to write and publish books.

Ann Liang

I had an amazing experience working with Katie on my query letter. Her feedback was precise, professional, and encouraging and I am more than happy with all the changes and suggestions she’s made. I would definitely recommend Salt & Sage to other writers.
