I can now confidently start writing my next book ...

“Writing your first book is not an easy task, especially when English is not your first language. I’​ve worked on mine for almost two years, [...] I tried to edit it on my own and I still wasn’​t happy about it. Then I found Tori online and she’​s done it within 2 weeks, but in such a way that all I had to do was to approve the awesome suggestions she’​s made [...] I can now confidently start writing my next book knowing there is someone I can count on to do excellent work and save me precious time.”​

—Silviu Pristavu, author of YOU and Your Own Universe
