Veronica Vega is a writer and Freelance Editor who also works with Riptide publishing as an Editorial Assistant. You’ll almost always find her with a nose in a book, that is, if she’s not lifting weights in the gym.
She loves the process of working with authors to make their novel shine and stand out, but she also enjoys simply geeking out over well-crafted prose and gushing with you about how awesome your story is.
As a queer woman of color, she has a particular interest in own voices stories, though she will read just about anything. She has experience with Caribbean dialects, and is comfortable with both US and UK English and their usage.
Her favourite genres are YA/Fantasy, Romance (and ALL its sub genres) Mystery/Suspense, Action/Thrillers and Science Fiction/Paranormal.

What Clients Say
I found Salt and Sage on Twitter using a hashtag… Trawling through the profiles, I found Veronica… [who had] expertise and experiences with many of the minority-group related issues I have mentioned in my novel… The feedback I received from Veronica floored me more than I expected it to… [H]er advice was clear, insightful, and actionable.
I needed a sensitivity reader STAT and I was so grateful to find Salt & Sage. I was able to find a sensitivity reader who completely fit my needs, and the correspondence was timely and efficient. All my questions up-front were answered, and when I received editorial notes, they were incredibly well thought out and very helpful. I was able to make precise changes, as well as broader strokes, and felt confident turning in my final manuscript.
