What Clients Say
Very positive! Salt & Sage reached out to me on Twitter, and offered fast and insightful services.
Mehr’s feedback for a sensitivity read was very beneficial for me. She addressed the specific elements that I was concerned about, providing reassurance for the things that worked while also giving examples of other tropes that wouldn’t work as well, so that I could be mindful to avoid those mistakes. A great learning experience for my first manuscript. So thankful for her help!
