What Clients Say


I have nothing but excellent feedback for Cameron and wanted to share that as well. He is my first official editor and I couldn’t be more thankful to him. He really opened my eyes to the book’s issues and how to fix them. His editing style matches exactly what sold me on Salt and Sage since his critiques were constructive, fair, and detailed. I am especially thankful to Cameron for his thoroughness and for adding his reactions to the story. I really feel like, thanks to him, I will be able to take my book to the next level!


Working with Cameron at Salt & Sage was a delight! He gave thoughtful, sensical feedback pointing out a few important spots that could be improved regarding transgender representation on the page, as well as some notes on my narrative structure. Cameron also got his thoughts and suggestions back to me several days before deadline, which was very much appreciated. I’d absolutely recommend working with Cameron and Salt & Sage, and plan on it myself for future projects!
