History of WordWiser Ink

WordWiser Ink LLC was originally formed in 2000 as Pentouch Literary, becoming well known among literary circles for its team of professional African-American editors who were exceptionally skilled at improving the editorial quality of self-published Black literature. The Pentouch Literary team was involved in the successes of numerous bestselling and award-winning books, including That Faith, That Trust, That Love, by Jamellah Ellis, a national bestselling self-published novel that was picked up by Strivers Row/RandomHouse Publishing, and More Than Entertainers, which won an NAACP Image Award for Best Nonfiction.

In 2003, two of Pentouch Literary’s founding editors, Tia Ross and Kimberly Hines, were recognized by Writer’s Digest Magazine among the “Top 37 freelance book doctors in the U.S.” Pentouch was also honored with inclusion in Elizabeth Lyon’s National Directory of Editors & Writers for Hire, Jewell Parker Rhodes’ The African American Guide to Writing & Publishing Nonfiction, and countless other publications, directories, and resources for writers and publishers.
