What People Are Saying
“I've worked with several freelance editors over the years. Tammy Salyer impressed me not only with her reasonable prices and thorough work, but with her quick replies and rapid turnaround. She was flexible enough to work with an irregular-length piece, and managed to beat a very tight deadline. She’s definitely one of the first I’ll go to whenever I'm looking for some editorial advice.
“Tammy is highly professional and an absolute delight to work with. She clearly has a love for the written word and the genre. She returned my manuscript to me by the agreed deadline, and I was absolutely thrilled with the results—she did what an editor’s supposed to do: make me sound more awesome than I am. I immediately hired her to edit a re-release of my previous book, and I’ll be using her again in the future.”

“I am very pleased with Tammy Salyer’s work and the attention she gives to even the smallest of continuity errors. She kept me updated of her process and asked questions where needed. I look forward to working with Tammy again.”
~ Jeanne Marcella, Through Rain and Missing Mantaurs and The Phoenix Embryo
“When I first started looking for an editor, I wanted someone with a proven track record of editing and someone who could do a good job. Not only that, I wanted someone who could edit my genre and actually like it too. Eventually, I decided on Tammy Salyer of Inspired Ink Editing to copyedit The Blood Moon. Not only did she have over 12 years of editing experience, but she worked in science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, and magical realism — all genres I could see myself writing in someday, including urban fantasy, which is what The Blood Moon is.
Working with Tammy couldn’t have been easier. She was very flexible and gave me a sample edit before agreeing to edit my book. I was lucky enough that she started my project almost a week early and so delivered the project a week early. She emailed me throughout the process, asking style questions and giving me updates, and was quick in responding to follow-up questions I had once I started applying the suggested edits.
My experience with Tammy was very positive and I look forward to working with her on future projects. Not only is she an excellent editor, she’s a successful author as well with several books and short stories under her belt.”
~ David Neth, Under The Moon Series
“I chose Tammy specifically for her combination of professionalism and easy warmth. She does what she says she’s going to do, and I was never left waiting. The very way she presented and organized her initial feedback let me trust her skill to balance the big picture with the small details. She’s also very skilled at combining encouraging feedback with constructive criticism, this coming in handy for newer writers who need all the encouragement we can get! I find that, even after our direct contact has concluded, she remains a helpful "voice in my head" that's making me a better writer. Tammy is a wonderful educator, considerate of her clients, and I plan to enjoy the pleasure of working with her again.”
