The Chocolate Pilgrim
“Tammy expertly demystified the steps involved in building my business as a result of publishing my first book. Her support was not limited to scheduled coaching sessions; Tammy responded by email and calls on a priority basis. My work with Tammy has helped me to connect with potential clients and build my confidence as an author and a public speaker. Thanks to Tammy’s professional guidance, I feel like sky’s the limit.” Marie Maccagno | www.mariemaccagno.com
Marie Maccagno is passionate about walking, the great outdoors, and chocolate. In the spring of 2009, she made a commitment to walk 800 kilometers through Spain in the hopes she could eat all the chocolate she could find. What she didn’t expect to find was herself.
A walk that long gives a person a lot of time to think. Marie’s mind dished out big lessons around forgiving her mother, entertaining the idea of possibly leaving her husband, and honoring herself as a parent. One step at a time is how Marie completed the Camino de Santiago and learned to love herself after all the years of inner self-hate.
Awakening A Woman’s Soul
“Without Tammy’s wisdom, support, encouragement and knowledge, I don’t believe I would have written my book, which truly became a reflection of my heart and soul. Tammy provided the structure, accountability, and framework that enabled me to break the process down into manageable pieces. Perhaps her greatest gift is being able to kindly acknowledge and silence the inner critic that often keeps us stuck and fearful of getting our message out into the world. Tammy has assembled a skilled and knowledgeable team to guide the entire process from conception through to publication and beyond. I’m grateful for Tammy and her entire team. Without them, I wouldn’t have fulfilled a life-long dream.”

Protect Your Purse
“When I first completed my manuscript, I knew that my manuscript needed something more but I wasn’t quite sure what it was. I trusted Tammy to get to the bottom of it. The results far exceeded my expectations. As soon as I saw her comments, I knew she was absolutely right! That was the missing piece! My book is so much better thanks to Tammy’s astute observations and suggestions. She has a gift for boiling down an author’s message to its essential components, and she is a wealth of knowledge about the book industry as a whole. If you’re thinking of becoming an author, hire Tammy. You’ll be glad you did.”Doris Belland, Author of Protect You Purse | www.dorisbelland.com

When Women Talk
“I hired Tammy and the Big Sky team for my first book—an anthology with 30 women. An absolute professional and an accomplished writer herself, she was able to not only coach our writing but as the project manager also laid out a schedule that kept us organized and profitable every step of the way. Tammy is hardworking, dedicated, efficient and has great communication skills. I highly recommend Big Sky Author Services for any book project.” Brigitte Lessard-Deyell | www.womentalk.ca

I knew Tammy Plunkett would be the perfect writing coach for me when we had our initial call in June 2016. Her passion rang out loud and clear. Plus, I instinctively knew that she would not be a “book boss” but a true partner with me on my journey. I am a recovering procrastinator and knew that I wanted someone who would stretch me and hold me accountable, but also someone with whom I would genuinely enjoy working. Tammy is that person. I had a basic idea of what I wanted to say in a book, but it was Tammy who breathed life into the process by providing structure, lending support, asking the tough questions, empathizing through the challenges, helping me to get unstuck, sharing valuable strategies, and keeping me on track. Her style is firm sprinkled with humor and a heavy dose of caring and support – exactly what a procrastinator needs! Tammy did more than coach and guide me through the writing process. She inspired me to see what I could not always see on my own.
