    It is almost impossible for an author to catch every single mistake in their own work. Many writers get attached to their own writing, and their minds will even overlook what they have written and read what they think they wrote. So, it is necessary to have a second set of eyes (preferably those of a professional editor) to do the copy editing and pick out what the author missed. I have the expertise needed to find and correct errors in grammar, continuity, flow, spelling, and punctuation. I will provide these skills for a fee, helping you bring your writing to a professional level.  less

    NEWS FLASH: If you want guaranteed placement on a national news blog, let's talk. Enjoy the benefits of a PR strategist using her journalism skills to get media placements. Now, back to regular programming. Many small business owners have no clue that an appearance on local or national television or in a newspaper can boost business. It works! For three years, I have made business owners believers. As a former newspaper journalist, I can read the minds of media gatekeepers. I know what they think because I used to be one. I have helped past clients boost sales and increase visibility. All I ask is that you allow me to do what you hired me to do -- and that is promote you and your business. If I went to the dealership to have the oil changed in my vehicle, I would never go into a garage and tell the mechanic how to change the oil in my vehicle. That is what I hired him for. If you don't believe what I say, read the comments left by my past clients here on oDesk. I have more references if you need them. My latest success: I landed an interview with a local newspaper editor for a client within 24 hours of sending the press release about an upcoming women's conference. Need I say more?  less

    I am an internal auditor by profession. I'm not only fond of numbers but words as well. I write, rewrite, proofread and sometimes I do translate from Spanish to English and the other way around. I am an organized person. I plan ahead of time to avoid stressful scenarios of trying to beat deadlines. Despite this fact, I still do accept works even if time constrained, primarily because I seem to have gained this ability of producing quality works even if I'm working under time pressure. Well, I guess I only hate being late but I am pretty good in cramming and rushing things to meet deadlines. I am a legal adviser who has served as a legal consultant for various law firms, I am capable of drafting pleadings, motions, affidavits and other papers required by law. A person you can easily work with, that's me, Allaine.  less
