What Clients Say


Wonderful! Both Veronica and Helen’s feedback was incredibly helpful and provided valuable depth and insight I otherwise would not have had! Thank you.


Helen gave me thoughtful, constructive, thorough, actionable feedback in the deep developmental and sensitivity edit she did for my manuscript. I have so much more clarity on the story now and how to make it really shine. Thank you Helen and Salt and Sage for your professionalism!
