Professional. Timely. Detailed. Soul Ink Literary Services provided my writing with the polished look of perfection I work to have my name on. Tori not only made the necessary edits/revisions/changes to my work, she also took the time to explain—with patience and clarity—the reason for several of the changes, which I did not understand. Many editors do not take (or make) the time to educate clients on recurring writing mistakes as a way to help them improve their writing on their own, and continuously charge and overcharge. This was a refreshing experience for me as an author, and I look forward to working with Soul Ink Literary Services again and again.”

Ronnie Massey, Fantasy Fiction Author

“When you choose to create stories as more than a hobby and want to share them with the world, you’ve gotta make sure all your commas and such are in the right place. That’s where an editor comes in.

“Tori James of Soul Ink Literary Services has been a total godsend. I warned her ahead of time that she had her hands full when she took on my upcoming novel, Ascension: Wolves of Goose Creek. Not only did she make sure every T was crossed and all the commas, semicolons, and whatnot were in place, she also went far beyond a basic grammar check and pointed out more than a few issues that I needed to work on story-wise as far as overuse of some phrases and lines.

“The changes that she suggested were spot on, and at no point did I come across one and feel as if it would alter the tone of my story. Aside from enhancing the current story, the suggestions were lessons learned for future stories, and for that I am forever grateful. Anyone or anything that enhances my art is worth their/its weight in gold. Tori is definitely worth it.

“No matter how many times you read and re-read, you are going to miss something. I have put off going with an editor in the past, and I have gotten reamed for it in reviews. If you’re gonna take the time to create a new baby, you’ve gotta make sure you send it out with its best foot forward. Tori can make sure that it happens. I plan on having all of my future works gone over by her watchful eyes, and you should do the same.”

“Before launching the Brown Sugar Griots website I contacted Soul Ink Literary Services to review the website copy. Not only did Tori make everything I wrote better, she took special care to clarify what I was trying to get across, never deviating from my intended message. What makes Tori a strong editor is the fact that she’s a very talented writer. She’s able to enhance your words and thoughts in a way that makes them captivating and engaging for readers, while always keeping your original ideas intact. She’s my go-to editor for anything that needs to go out to an audience. I won’t publish a web page or a story without her review.”
