"Big Sky Author Services has been absolutely critical in my success in the making writing my book. From planning sessions of getting the ideas from my head into a semblance of order, being a good steward of my hopes and fears, strategies to create chapters, to total revisioning once it started to take shape. Tammy Plunkett and her team helped take a dream of mine, turn it into a big audacious goal with tangible targets to check off along the way, and then helped me achieve it by ushering me through the entire publishing process.  If you have ever been inclined to write a book, but the process is daunting, Tammy and Big Sky will help you make it a reality. I can't say enough about how life-changing this experience has been."

“The biggest benefit the group has given me is the accountability to write on a weekly basis. I feel like I’m letting the group down if I don’t do what I said I would do. I am grateful for all the support and motivation.”
Nancy Livingstone

"I credit hiring Tammy as THE one step I took that helped me finally bring my book into the world. I appreciated that her service was a one-stop shop and I didn't have to learn the intricacies of publishing to self-publish my book. Tammy gently but firmly kept me moving forward. She gave me positive feedback and made helpful suggestions as I moved through the writing process. What I most appreciated was that I could spend my time writing, knowing that she had all the other pieces of publishing covered! "

Thanks to the Authors Accelerated Membership, I am now writing more days than I am not. Not because I have to, but because I want to. I am so grateful to Tammy for helping me reconnect to my memoir practically and emotionally and recommit to myself to see this book through. Not to mention the opportunity to learn invaluable lessons through the experience of every one of my peers and share time with brilliant writers.

"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."

“Being able to share how my project is going has been so helpful, and you have great information, resources, and options I can access. Our group connection allows me to share ideas, hang-ups, and successes I have and is a helpful resource that supports all of us complete our writing projects. Huge Thank you, Tammy.”
Dawn Ross

"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."

The Writer's Retreat was one of the most amazing weekends that I have ever spent focusing entirely on my writing. Tammy provided exceptional resources and teachings on a variety of types of writing each of us had expressed interest in completing. The one on one coaching provided me with an opportunity to create a detailed outline and really get started on my topic areas. I was so pleased for the support and encouragement. She also chose an exceptional location which I found helped me to immerse myself into the positive energy and sensational scenic environment while focusing on my writing. I would highly recommend attending one of Tammy’s Writing Retreats, as it will launch you into an exciting writing experience. It’s really worth it!

I attended the Writers Retreat in May of 2021. As it was my first retreat of this type, I didn't really know what to expect. What I came away with was more than half of my book written and great information on how to finish the remainder. Tammy provided amazing information and insights not only on tips to stay focused, writing cues, publishing, and advertising ideas but more than that, the atmosphere that she provided was so inspirational and motivational. I cannot wait for the next retreat and the next book! I am a fan for life! If you have ever thought about wanting to write a book, these retreats will help you find your voice and accomplish that goal!

"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."

I am grateful for the person Tammy is, the talent she brings to the world and the timing that this Writing Retreat came into my life. I have found my few days with her, and the other astonishing women who have shared the space with me, to be motivating, inspiring and dramatically reinforce my belief that all of us have a story to tell. My favourite quote Tammy shared was "if your book has the potential to impact only a single person, then you need to write it." So, I say tell your story! If you feel lost, unsure of where to start, or lacking the spark I highly recommend checking out Big Sky Author Services and get your name in for the next Writing Retreat!

“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.”
